Silhouette® Window Shadings

Silhouette® Window Shadings, with the Signature S-Vane™, transform the look of a room by diffusing sunlight into a warm glow with exceptional elegance. Soft fabric vanes are suspended between two sheers, diffusing softened light deep into a room. Tilt the vanes to suit the privacy you desire while maintaining UV protection. See life in a whole new light with Silhouette® Window Shadings by saying yes to the S. Transformational beauty rarely has such practical benefits:

  • TRANSFORM harsh sunlight. Vanes and sheers combine to softly filter light.
  • PROVIDE ultraviolet protection. Sheers and vanes combine to provide up to 88% ultraviolet protection with vanes open, 99% when closed.
  • ENHANCE natural daylighting. Sheers disperse sunlight deep into the room, reducing the need for electric lights.
  • PRESERVE outside views. No cords or tapes run through product to obstruct outside views.
  • SECURE daytime privacy. View to the outside is clear. View from the outside is obscured during the day.
  • REFLECT solar heat. Exterior sheer reflects the sun’s heat, often more vital than insulation.

Anti-Moiré Fabric Technology

Moiré (pronounced “mwah-rey”), which means “watered” in French, is an interference of pattern that gives an
irregular wavy and rippled appearance. The moiré effect often obstructs view and can be dizzying when
looking through the shading.

Hunter Douglas Silhouette® Window Shadings are designed with a patented weave that eliminates the moiré
effect, delivering a clean and undisturbed view. This gives you an uninterrupted view of the outside while
providing adequate privacy inside.

Silhouette® Window Shadings with Anti-Moiré

The patented weave delivers a clean and undisturbed view by eliminating any wavy motion a person would otherwise see when looking through the shading.

Other brand’s window shading without Anti-Moiré

When both the overlays use the same or very similar material, a moiré pattern is created due to light interference effects.

2012 WCMA Product of The Year
