Special Feature – High Lite Shades by Elite Window Fashions.
One of the most common shades our customers ask for outside of our Hunter Douglas lineup is the High-Lite shade from Elite Window Fashions. I really like this shade; it’s very modern and straight line look appeals to my contemporary taste. It has a very similar look to the Hunter Douglas Pirouette, but does not have the bulbous roman type vanes, it stays nice and flat.
This really is a revolutionary shade that allows you to maintain your view while protecting your privacy. Alternating bars of coloured and clear fabric pass over each other either blocking light completely or providing a view similar to a venetian blind but with the privacy of a roller shade.
It’s really a simple concept that’s relatively new, alternating bars of coloured and sheer fabric pass over each other either blocking light or providing a view like a wood blind or give the privacy of a roller shade. The bottom rail mechanism provides a smooth operating system allowing the user to use the blind like a roller shade- raising it to any desired position. The head rail fascia allows the shade to be fully concealed.
The High-Lite is a great shading system, it’s a bit more economical than the premium Hunter Douglas products, and it comes with optional motorization, it’s not for everyone or every application, but when placed in the proper setting it achieves a look your friends and neighbours will be wowed over.
