A solar shade will block harmful rays from the sun. The sun can fade your carpets and upholstery but with a solar shade, you can stop that from happening while still having an attractive window covering. A Solar Shade will also help make your home more energy efficient by not allowing the heat from the sun to enter your home as easily.


Hunter Douglas Designer Screen Shades provide exceptional protection from UV rays, yet still allow you to enjoy the view through your windows and glass doors with varying levels of opacity.


State-Of-The-Art Engineering

Hunter Douglas roller shades are unlike any other on the market — both in the way they look on your windows and how they perform. Each shade is precision engineered to deliver minimal light gap and quiet, flawless and smooth operation.


Minimal Light Gap

The ultra-slim Custom Clutch system results in the thinnest light gap in the industry, and that means you get to enjoy less light peeking in, greater privacy and a more polished look.


The Perfect Fusion Of Form And Function

A strikingly beautiful new streamlined design driven by a revolutionary, patented Custom Clutch system that delivers groundbreaking performance. It's the most significant advancement in decades and a new standard exclusive to Hunter Douglas roller shades.
