Cellular shades are best for energy efficiency because they trap air in the cells, keeping the warmth in and the cold air out in the winter. In the summer, they help keep the cool air in, and the heat out. They also absorb sound to make rooms more comfortable.
UV Transmittance: 0%
UV transmittance measures the effectiveness at preventing ultra violet rays from entering an interior. The percentage ratings indicate the amount of possible UV rays that actually penetrate the window covering into the interior.
Shading Coefficient: 0.30
Shading coefficient measures the heat going through the window when the shade is used versus the heat gain through a bare window. The lower the numbers, the less heat transfer and the cooler the room is in the summer.
Sound Absorption: 0.40-.045
AKA the Noise Reduction Coefficient, sound absorption is the amount of reflected sound absorbed by the shade. The greater the coefficient, the greater the sound absorption.
R-Value (Single Pane): 4.76-5.37
The R-Value rates the effectiveness of the window covering at preventing energy from flowing to the outside. The higher the number, the more insulative the product.
R-Value (Double Pane Est): 3.2-3.3
See above for Single Pane Description.
Fabric Width: 86”
Privacy Level: Blackout – Fabric is opaque, providing privacy and blocking light completely.
Features: Maximum privacy and light control. Neutral to the streetside.
Cleaning Instructions: Bali cellular shades are very easy to keep clean and look great for years to come. Regular dusting with a feather duster is recommended. When required, fabric can be lightly vacuumed with a brush attachment. If they become soiled with topical dirt, Bali recommends that the shade be spot cleaned using a soft rag or sponge, a mild detergent and warm water. Extra care should be used when cleaning the room darkening fabric as the fabric could be permanently creased. Due to differences in ultrasonic cleaning operators, Bali does not recommend this method of cleaning. Do not use strong detergents or spot removers. Dry cleaning is not recommended and is not covered by the warranty.
Bali’s Limited Lifetime Warranty
What is Covered: The cellular shade product is warranted against original defects in materials or workmanship for as long as the original purchaser owns the product provided that the product was properly installed in a residential home, the product was made or assembled exclusively from Bali materials and components, and Bali’s recommendations were followed with regard to limitations and specifications.
Who is Covered: This warranty extends only to the original purchaser of the product.
Obligations to the Consumer: The obligations of Bali are limited to the repair or replacement of parts or products found to be defective. Bali is not responsible for shipping costs or labor costs for measuring and taking the shade down or reinstalling the product. If repairs are made under this warranty, the repairs will be made with like or similar parts.
The Warranty Does Not Cover: This warranty does not cover conditions or damages caused by accidents, alterations, misuse, or failure to follow instructions for measurement, installation, cleaning or maintenance. In addition, normal wear and tear are not covered by the warranty. All fabrics can lose original intensity after long exposure to the sun. When left for extended periods in direct sunlight, plastics tend to yellow or crack. All cords will eventually wear out. Bali considers these things to be normal wear and tear and are not covered by the warranty.
This warranty is exclusive and in lieu of all other written or verbal warranties or obligations and liabilities. No person is authorized to extend or alter this warranty.
· Inside Mount: Please provide us with the exact measurements of your window opening. The manufacturer will make the necessary deductions. For complete light blockage, outside mount is recommended to avoid light gaps.
· Outside Mount: Please provide us with the exact measurements of the area you want to cover with your shade. The manufacturer will not make any allowances. It is recommended that you add 3” to each side of the width of the window for complete privacy and light control.

TRUTH IN ADVERTISNG
By NANCY M
from NEW YORK
AS ADVERTISED...CERTAINLY WAS THE BEST PRICE I COULD FIND ON LINE OR IN STORES..EVEN ON SALE!
I ended up buying more!
By New Yorker
from New York, NY
I needed blinds for my bedroom and these really keep out the light, even during the daytime. I am buying the same ones for the rest of my bedrooms!
Love the privacy
from Colorado Springs, CO
My 10 year old blinds are wearing out 1 by 1 and need replacing. Was trying to keep the same product to match what I already had in my bedroom. Was able to get the identical product thus saving me hundreds by not have to redo the entire room.
Exactly as advertised
By Shell the shopper
from Cheyenne, WY
The only negative thing that I could say about these blinds is that you HAVE to order them a couple inches longer than your measurement. They are a stiffer blind, and we have had a heck of a time keeping them pulled ALL the way down. I would still strongly recommend them though.
Great insulating shade for cold weather
By Save Energy
from Chicago, IL
o like the top down/bottom up controls for privacyo good insulating cold weather shade
Great for darkening
from Shakopee, MN
These shades really do a nice job of darkening the room and keeping the outside heat or cold out. Although it would be better to place the shades on the frame rather than inside to prevent the cracks allowing light in.
Bali Cordless Blinds are Fantastic
By Love the Lord!!!
from Ubly, MI
After remodeling our family room I preferred Black-out Bali Blinds because of the color selection. Love the Privacy they provide, and would highly recommend the cordless, so neat looking and easy to use. However don't buy these cordless if you leave them in the down position all the time. They don't work for that situation.[...] I would highly recommend these blinds to anyone.
Energy Saving Bali Blinds
By Desert Dawg
from Central Washington State
About Me Budget Shopper
We installed these Bali room-darkening miniblinds in our new park model home in the desert. What an incredible and immediate difference in room temperature and comfort when the blinds are closed! We shopped long and hard before we bought. We couldn't be happier with our blinds.
Bali Cellular Shades
from Tacoma, WA
These cellular shades are what we expected from a good brand like Bali. Easy to install, use and they block the sunlight so we aren't awake at dawn.
I had some problem with full retraction of these blinds if they stay open for a long time. It appears that the retracting mechanism "lost memory" and blinds cannot be fully opened. retracting mechanism of cordless blinds needs improvement.
Great product and would buy it again,
By Smokey the Bandit
from The Woodlands, TX
I got the room darkening feature for my son's room and it has made a big difference. The price was the best price after shopping around [...].
Very good blinds
from Los Angeles, CA
This is installed in my daughters' bedroom. In the summer as the daylight lingers, it can be tough to get them to go to sleep. This darkens the room so they don't feel that they're missing out on time to play. It also helps keep the room cool if closed during the day when the sun shines directly in the room.Because of the style of window, we ordered this to be in three sections instead of two (at our window length, single pull is not available). What I did not expect is that two of the panels are controlled with the pull on the left instead of each panel having its own pull. I probably should have realized this when I ordered it, but be aware if you are in the same situation
I absoulutely love my blinds!
from Sun Prairie, Wisconsin
Easy to install.
Great purchase--highly recommended
from Lenox, MA
I've had the blinds I purchased in my bedroom for about a year now. They have stood the test of time. They do a very good job blocking out light and I love the top down/bottom up feature--well worth the extra money, as I can lower the top of my blinds in the morning to let in light but still have privacy until I am dressed. Quality is excellent--many ups and downs later, no sign of problems. And they are attractive and help insulate my windows.
Great product at a great price!
By Energy Efficient
from Wheaton, IL
Product was great in the winter to block cold from the windows. Love the top/down bottom/up feature of the blinds!
from Weymouth Ma
Cheapest price for excellent quality. Blinds were exactly as I ordered them and saved hundreds off the local home improvement store with initials H.D.I will buy from Steve's again when I need blinds.
By Jim the Runner
Blinds were cut perfectly and installed without a hitch.
I would buy this shade again and I will!
[...]The shades are great, Just what we were looking for. Thank-you very much
from El Paso, TX
Previously bought similar item at mass retailer. This way I saved money for the same product. Instructions were easy, quality is very good. I would buy again.
Bali Cellular shades
blinds were as expected, [...]
I used these shades in my granddaughter's bedroom. I got the cordless for safety and black out to control light so she would sleep in the mornings. These look so nice and were so easy to install.
By Dr. Dan
from Minneapolis, MN
These are great blinds, they really do black-out a room. Only problem is they can't get close enough to edge of window (or between blinds when you have 2 of them) to block out all light, so you get light from the edges, but nothing from behing the blinds. Color matched perfect, easy to raise and lower.
Great product at a great price
from Yorktown, VA
Recieved a quality product at a great price. Recieved my blinds in a very timely manner and all items were accurately cut and undamaged.

no surprises--order completed as ordered.

Great Quality & Design for Privacy
By Senior Citizen
from Roseau, Minnesota
This is the fourth set of Bali double-cell shades I have purchased for different rooms. Steven's Price was the best. I am a lady in my Seventies and I installed them alone. They are very attractive and a great product. [...] I have nothing negative to say about this product.

M & B, Levolor and Kirsch do not charge oversized freight. Shutters have a freight charge due to the weight of the product. Most blind orders ship within 3 to 5 business days.
