Blackout Shades

Blackout shades and window treatments can block up to 99 percent of visible light from entering a room. With their ability to stop light from penetrating the treatment’s fabric, blackout shades are ideal for bedrooms, nurseries and media rooms. Some shades, such as cellulars and Romans, are made from a blockout material, while other fabrics or materials, such as woven wood shades, require an attached blackout liner. The blockout property of a window covering applies only to light striking the shade itself; a halo of light will seep in around the edges of the window treatment. A drapery or side panel, and a fascia over the roller can help cover up this light seepage. For maximum effectiveness, aluminum extrusion side channels can be mounted around the blackout window treatment. As the leading supplier of shading control systems in the New York metropolitan area, we offer window blackout shades in a wide selection styles from leading manufacturers, so our solutions can meet your design needs in addition to blocking light.
