Privacy & Light Control
From completely blacking out the sun to enhancing the natural light in your Houston home.
Diffuse or Black Out Sunlight With Hunter Douglas Window Coverings
Hunter Douglas products are designed to offer a range of light control and privacy options with a broad selection of fabrics and materials, in a range of opacities from sheer to room darkening to opaque.
The translucent fabrics that many of our products offer are specially engineered to diffuse harsh sunlight and draw it deeper into the room – dispersing the light to help illuminate your home naturally and reduce the need for artificial light. Our semi-opaque and opaque fabrics and materials are more appropriate for room darkening when you want as little light as possible.
Deflect or Redirect Sunlight
Select Houston window treatment products from Hunter Douglas feature innovative slats and vanes that allow you to deflect and redirect sunlight precisely where you want.
Window Shades Energy Efficiency
Without energy-efficient window treatments, as much as 50% of a Houston home's heating and cooling energy can be lost through its windows.
In winter months, your home heating escapes to the outdoors through your windows while in the summertime, the outside heat flows into your home through these same windows. With window treatments that provide insulation, you can reduce energy consumption, save on heating and cooling costs, and create a more comfortable atmosphere.
Solar Heat Control
The warmth provided by the sun, its solar energy, may be desirable during the winter to help heat your home, but in the summer, it can make a Texas room overly hot and uncomfortable—driving up air conditioning costs. Many Houston Hunter Douglas window fashions help to control solar heat by allowing it into your home in the winter and minimizing the amount that comes in during the summer.
Daylighting is the practice of lighting rooms with natural light rather than artificial light.
By drawing natural light into a room many of our Houston roller shades reduce the need for other types of lighting, thereby reducing your energy use.
5 Tips for Saving Energy at the Window
- Ensure your windows and doors are properly weather-stripped.
- Caulk around basement and storm windows.
- When heating or cooling, keep windows locked.
- Open your window coverings during sunny winter days to catch free solar heat then close them at night to keep that heat in.
- Close your window coverings during summer days to keep the heat out.
At Signature Shutters of Houston All of our products are designed with safety in mind—a responsibility we take very seriously.
Child safety is serious business.
From cordless and motorized window treatment operating systems, retractable shade lift cords, cord tensioners and wand controls, we offer a wide array of lifting system options for enhanced child and pet safety.
The window coverings industry uses warning tags, labels, and other methods to communicate the potential hazards of corded window coverings. The warning shown here, for example, communicates the important message about cords being a potential strangulation hazard and suggests choosing cordless or inaccessible-cord alternatives.
