Magical New Design that Incorporates Two Roller Shades in One

PEARL RIVER, NY (July 8, 2020)—Hunter Douglas, the world’s leading manufacturer of custom window treatments, announced today the launch of its proprietary Designer Roller Duolite® Shade, an engineering breakthrough that combines a sheer fabric for light-diffusion and an opaque liner for room-darkening together on one roller. The first of its kind, this innovative two-in-one design brings homeowners the ultimate in privacy and light control.

With the new patented Designer Roller Duolite Shade consumers don’t have to choose between having either beautifully diffused light with a view-through to the outside or a room-darkening shade. They can experience both in a single shade for optimal light control. Exclusive to Hunter Douglas, Designer Roller Duolite Shades are the only roller shades that combine a decorative sheer or semi-sheer fabric on the front with a color-coordinated room-darkening liner on a single roller. Once the front shade is completely lowered, the back liner can be adjusted to achieve soft, filtered light or room-darkening as needed. Choose from 24 unique fabric styles, in a variety of textures and colors designed exclusively for Roller Duolite Shades, and complete the look with color-coordinated hardware.

PowerView® Automation is the exclusive operating system available on Roller Duolite Shades, providing seamless operation. With PowerView Automation, our advanced wireless operating system, homeowners can program their shades to automatically re-position throughout the day based on a schedule that they set. PowerView also seamlessly integrates with other whole-home automation systems and smart speakers such as Amazon Alexa, Google Assistant and Apple HomeKit for voice-activated shade control.

Hunter Douglas shades are designed and custom-crafted in the U.S. with the highest level of quality. To learn more about Hunter Douglas Designer Screen and Roller Shades are and their compatibility, please visit:
