The New Ultimate Blackout Shades

Window insulating blackout shades

Only a few months ago, Hunter Douglas released a revolutionary blackout shades system. The Duette® LightLock™ system is a superb combination of the Hunter Douglas Duette® Honeycomb Shades and an engineered light blocking side channel. The benefits of the Hunter Douglas Duette® Honeycomb Shades cellular construction is that they provide much-needed insulation to your windows. The beautiful textured fabrics are available in light filtering and room darkening opacities. Choose a room darkening fabric and combine it with the LighLock™ system for a true blackout blind.

Hunter Douglas LightLock™ uses U-shapes side channels that overlap the back and front of your Duette® Honeycomb Shades. The channels feature rows of specially shaped micro-ridges, designed to deflect nearly all incoming light. You would previously get some light gaps along each side of your blinds. Now light seepage is stopped entirely by the LightLock™ system. If you are seeking a bedroom that’s totally pitch dark, Hunter Douglas Duette® Honeycomb Shades with LightLock™ are the best blackout shades to meet your needs.
