Each blind comes with 2 Slat Valance standard. All mounting hardware is included.
Made with .006 Gauge Painted Aluminum with the exception of colors Brushed Aluminum (these two colors have an actual brushed finish)
Headrail: Cold rolled steel, bonderized, corrosion resistant, finish painted, bakecoated and formed into a 1.5” x 1” U-shape profile with rolled edges at top.
Bottomrail: Cold rolled steel, bonderized, corrosion resistant, finish painted, bakecoated and formed after painting into ¾” width. Bottomrail End Caps are soft molded plastic formed to fit over the ends of the bottomrail, available with pin and hold down brackets to secure bottomrail to jamb or sill.
Slats: Manufacturered from magnesium alloy AIMg 3.5, which is a chemical composition, 1” wide. Highly corrosive resistant. The material is functional in different environments without oxidating. They are tested for color stability, and the baked enamel finish can withstand 500 hours at 100% humidity; 300 hours in a 5% salt spray solution at 85 degrees, and 250 hours in accelerated weather without blistering, corroding, or adhesive failure.
Tilter: The tilter mechanism is a worm and gear type, of heavy-duty non-absorbing plastic, resistant to heat and water, to maintain slats at any angle. The tilter housing is of a special heavy-duty plastic to provide long lasting maintenance free operation. The protruding worm attached directly to a tubular wand. 5:1 ration ensures case of opening/closing slats.
Wand: A clear co-polyester rod, hexagonal for positive grip, with a metal hook at one end, which attaches the wand to the tilter gear.
Cord Lock: A housing of durable plastic containing metal rollers over which the cords ride. The floating knurled brass rollers are designed to lock the cord at any length. A metal cord separator guide prevents the cords from becoming entangled.
Tilt Rod: Made of cold rolled steel with corrosion-resistant finish and shaped to fit corresponding openings in tape roll and tilter components.
Braided Ladder: Made of high-density polyester yard in a ladder formation with vertical components.
Lift Cords: Made of braided polyester. The cord is secured to the bottomrail by means of a tape lock button.
Installation Brackets: Snap-in brackets of .042” cold rolled steel, bonderized and treated to resist corrosion, with a bake-on finish paint coat to match headrail color. For blinds over 60” wide, center support brackets are provided, to be spaced evenly with maximum spacing 36”.

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: <1%
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: .32 - .36
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: .40 - .45
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): 1.6 – 1.9
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): 2.6 – 2.9
See above for Single Pane Description.
Fabric Width: 96”
Privacy Level: Semi-Opaque: Light and Dark shapes may be seen, but details are not visible. Deep fabric colors provide moderate light control, while light colors filter and diffuse bright sunlight and provide low light control. These fabrics are translucent and their colors may be influenced by changing light conditions. Colors may appear to vary depending upon the time of day and type of lighting, as well as whether the shade is partially or fully lowered.
Features: Neutral to the streetside
