More on the Silhouette

There are many reasons why the Silhouette Shade continues to be one of our best selling products. Here are a few features and benefits that show why this is a truly unique products that our customers continue to love. I have them in my own home and can say they really are a terrific product.
-Unique Construction-Soft fabric vanes are suspended between sheer fabric facings.
-Soft, stylish function-Vanes tilt for precise, variable light control and privacy.
-Daytime Privacy-Two sheer facings obscure the view into the home while still providing a soft, diffused view of the outside. 
-UV Protection- Up to 88% with open vanes, 99% with closed vanes; provides UV protection while maintaining a clear view-through.
