Window coverings, like any décor used in your home, make a statement about your personal design tastes. Whether you wish to make a bold statement using bright colors, or take a more subtle approach with sheers and neutrals, our Hunter Douglas Certified Designers are certain to find the perfect window treatment for you and your home.
Cascade Flooring America is proud to offer Hunter Douglas window coverings, many of which are on display in our showroom. With the availability of so many different combinations of Hunter Douglas fabrics, styles and lift systems, we don’t include pricing on our website. We invite you to visit our showroom and let us put together an estimate based on your selections and window dimensions.
Hunter Douglas offers a complete range of window covering solutions from sheers to shutters. Whether your goal is to block light or soften it while providing privacy, Hunter Douglas has a design that will meet your style and needs.
Without energy-efficient window treatments, as much as 50% of a home’s heating and cooling energy can be lost through its windows. All Hunter Douglas window fashions provide window insulation, offering your home increased protection against heat loss during the winter, as well as minimizing the sun’s heat or “solar heat” during the summer. The numerous Architella fabrics in the Duette Collection are a great example of the new energy efficient window coverings offered by Hunter Douglas.
In winter months, indoor heating moves toward and escapes through windows to the outdoors, while during the summer months, outside heat flows into your home through these same windows. Many Hunter Douglas window fashions boast high R-values, (the measure of a product’s ability to resist heat flow), helping to reduce energy consumption, save on heating and cooling costs, and crating a more comfortable room setting.
Solar Heat Control
The warmth provided by the sun via solar energy may be desirable during the winter to help heat your home, yet it can make a room overly hot and uncomfortable while driving up air conditioning costs during the summer. Many Hunter Douglas products are designed to reduce the amount of solar heat that passes through the window, which is known as the Solar Heat Gain Coefficient (SHGC). The lower the SHGC, the more protected your home is from the sun’s heat. To enjoy the sun’s warmth when desired, simply raise or open the window covering and invite it in.
Daylighting is the practice of lighting rooms with natural light rather than generating illumination from electricity. With Hunter Douglas window fashions, you can control how much natural light comes into your room. Our sheers and other select styles actually diffuse light as it enters and helps to draw it deeper into the room.; You can also direct incoming light where it’s needed most by tilting the louvers, slats, vanes, blinds and panels. By drawing natural light into a room, many of our window treatments reduce your energy needs for other types of lighting.
Hunter Douglas has six different types of lift systems; five of them are child and pet friendly. Cordless window treatments have made significant advances: The Power-rise option allows you to raise and lower your shades with the touch of a button; Ultra-glide allows the cord to stay one length regardless of whether the shade is raised or lowered; Light-rise is a cordless option that allows you to lift the shade from the bottom with a simple lift of your hand; Easy-rise is a continuous fabric cord that is mounted to your window casing; Bead Chain Clutch is featured on our roller products and is a continuous metal or plastic bead chain that is mounted on your window casing. Of course, the standard cord lock is also available.
