Single-Cell vs. Cell-within-a-Cell Window Shades
Cellular shades are fabric shades with a honeycomb construction that provide energy-efficiency and a stylish look at the window. The shades are available in single-cell and cell-within-a-cell construction. Hunter Douglas offers Duette® Honeycomb Shades (single-cell) and Duette Architella® (cell-within-a-cell). Both can help lower your energy costs and create year-round comfort inside your home.
As the name suggests, single-cell shades trap air inside single distinct pockets, and cell-within-a-cell shades trap it between multiple layers of cells inside each other for even greater energy efficiency. Duette Architella shades are the only honeycomb shade on the market with the cell-within-a-cell construction.
Do Cellular Shades Help with Insulation?
Yes, cellular shades provide superior energy-efficiency due to their honeycomb construction. Our honeycomb shades are designed to keep your interiors comfortable throughout every season; use natural sunlight to warm rooms in the winter and block harsh sunlight in the summer, all while lowering your heating and cooling energy costs.
