Vertical Blinds

Vertical Blinds

A collection of highly functional window treatments that can traverse across a window, yet tilt and diffuse the light while using the same vanes to provide privacy or a room darkening effect. The Cadence from Hunter Douglas is our most popular vertical which is not only curved (as some of the competition's are), but has a rolled front edge that gives it depth, beauty and function.

Design Options

From inexpensive PVC vanes, to cloth or wood, these make an almost perfect choice to cover large rectangular openings.

Traversing Systems

Continuous Cordloop, travelling wands or remote control; there is a system that is right for you.

Light Control

Tilt the vanes to see out while minimizing the effects of the sun, or block the light for privacy and a room darkening effect, all at the twist of the wrist.

Specialty Shapes

Rectangular windows can be covered in addition to arches and angles. Click to see available shapes.

Enhanced Child Safety Options

As there are no cords that extend past the window sill, all available lift systems are designed with safety concerns in mind.

Size Limitations

Minimum width 9", maximum width up to 191" (all one blind on a single headrail).
Ralph's notes: Verticals are highly functional in design. While the lower-priced end can be referred to as the "Renter's Option", the Cadence and Crosswinds integrate beauty and function. The 2-slat Cadence valance provides the appearance of a finished drapery treatment yet maintains the functionality of a vertical blind.

Panel Tracks/Gliding Window Panels

The modern solution for large and small window expanses, Skyline ™ Gliding Window Panels provide a clean, sleek and contemporary look designed to maximize any view.

Fabric Options

Innovative Styling

The Skyline™ Gliding Window Panel's patented headrail system allows for an infinite number of panels to be placed on one headrail. Each panel is finished with an interlocking bottom weight which adds stability, smooth operation, and easy gliding without tangling.

Size Limitations

Minimum width 28", maximum width up in select fabrics to 192" (all one blind on a single headrail).
Ralph's notes: Gliding window panels are a versatile, multi-function window covering. The sleek, contoured styling allows Skyline ™ panels to act as a great undertreatement to draperies or they can be used as a room divider or with an overtreatment to provide functionality, light control, and decorative appeal.

Privacy Sheers

Fabric choices

10 different fabrics to control light and privacy. From semi-opaque for room darkening these have the ability to reduce the UV exposure to a room while still maintaining a view. Now available with Drapery fabric to frame the privacy sheer for a more elegant look.

Design options

Traversing systems

Whether using a traversing wand or a wand/cord combination the shades open and close very smoothly. Also available is a motorized option to be used with a remote control.

Sun Control

When open in the sheer position, the sun's glare and effects are minimized, reducing the UV's by 65%. When tilted the UV reduction can be over 95%.
Ralph's notes: Privacy Sheers make a very elegant statement in a room. Whether over a sliding glass door, or as the focal point on a large window with a view, you cannot beat the attractive beauty this shade adds to a room. The fabric, even though fragile looking, can be ultrasonically cleaned and cleans up beautifully.
