Why Honeycomb Window Blinds Excel

Honeycomb window blinds otherwise known as cellular shades, are a unique, stylish window blind covering. These fabric blinds have a cross-section that resembles honeycombs, through which the air pockets insulate the room, reducing heat loss during winter and heat gain during summer. If achieved with maximum effectiveness this energy efficiency can cut the home’s heating and cooling by a half. Clearly, honeycomb window blinds have tremendous potential to reduce the carbon footprints, as well as adding great beauty and comfort to your home.

Window coverings insulate by slowing the movement of heat that is caused by temperature differences between the interior and exterior of a home. The better a product works against conduction, convection, and radiation, the better it insulates. R-value is the measure of a material’s resistance to conductive, convective, and radiant heat flow. The higher the R-value, the slower the heat transfer through the material. U-factor is a measure of the heat flow itself. The higher the R-value, the lower the U-factor, and the less heat flow through a material.

The multiple layers of cells in the honeycomb also provide sound proofing and enhanced light filtering. Honeycomb blinds are flexible and sturdy, available in single, double or triple cell honeycombs. A single cell window blind is perfect for a large window since it is lighter in weight than a double or triple cell blind. For small or medium sized windows, the double or triple cell would work well regardless of the weight. With bigger cell sizes, the insulation gets better.

Since they are made out of fabric, they come in a wide array of colours and patterns, abstract or figurative, all offering choices to suit individual preferences. Normally this fabric is fade resistant and fire resistant. Honeycomb window blinds are available in soft light-filtering materials to give the desired privacy.

Unlike vertical blinds or miniblinds that come in slats, honeycomb blinds are constructed from continuous fabric and features pleats. Some honeycomb blinds come with a cord, or continuous cord loop for top-down or bottom-up options. There can also be a cordless feature and a remote-control feature. Typically honeycomb blinds suit small to very large window areas, even doors, skylights, arched doors and windows. They fit formal, contemporary, modern and traditional home decorating styles, but more so for areas that need greater insulation.
