Cutting-edge materials marry energy-saving properties with luxury, bespoke window dressings. The result? The gorgeous design you desire and significant savings on energy bills.
Invisible UV rays cause untold damage to interior décor. The right window covering can be very effective in preventing this. Such effectiveness is measured in terms of a “% UV blockage” rating. The higher the rating, the greater the UV protection. Hunter Douglas window coverings typically block 86% or more of UV radiation.
All Regency window treatments come with simple numeric values for product and fabric type to help you gauge their energy-efficient rating.
extend the lifespan of your precious furnishings
The ultraviolet light in sunlight can slowly but relentlessly cause damage to your furnishings. In time it fades wood floors, furniture, upholstery, draperies, carpets, and artwork. Prolonged exposure to sunlight causes natural, undyed fabrics to turn yellow, weakening their fibers and making them look old and worn prematurely.
The right choice of window dressing not only helps reduce energy bills, but it also prevents the imperceptible creep of UV damage to your beloved interior décor.
