Residential Blackout Window Shade
Blackout shades are opaque, and do not allow either light flow or view-through. This is the definitive solution for areas where complete privacy is desired.
Blackout shades are ideal for room darkening residential applications. Shades may be used alone, or in conjunction with draperies, roman shades or solar shades.
Blackout shades enhance media viewing for home theaters or living rooms where people watch movies or other media presentations.
Need darker dark?
If blackout shades are mounted outside your window opening, the edges of the shades will overlap the edges of the opening, but a small amount of light will be visible behind and around those overlapping edges.
If blackout shades are mounted inside your window opening, there will be small gaps between the edges of the fabric and the edges of the opening, where light will shine in.
Optional blackout shade hardware accessories can nearly eliminate these light “leaks” if more complete room darkening is desired. Side tracks (shown in photo at right) capture the shade edges and block almost all light leakage at the edges. Optional sill channels are also available to capture the bottom edge of the shade fabric to eliminate further light leakage where required.
Residential Blackout Shades are ideal for:
- Home Theaters
- Home Office
- Any area requiring total privacy
