Breezy Cleaning

Care and Cleaning: Durability is a hallmark of Hunter Douglas Duette honeycomb shades. The strong, anti-static fabrics repel dust and dirt. Consequently, they require little cleaning and maintenance.

   Regular dusting with a feather duster is all that's necessary in most circumstances.

   For a more thorough cleaning, the fabric can be lightly vacuumed with a brush attachment.

For a more thorough cleaning, the fabric can be lightly vacuumed with a brush attachment.


Sponge or Spot Cleaning: When needed, all Duette fabrics can be cleaned by gently blotting with a soft, damp cloth or sponge, using lukewarm water and a mild detergent. Be careful not to apply too much pressure to the fabric. Take special care when cleaning blackout fabrics to avoid creasing.

   Duette fabrics can be cleaned by gently blotting with a soft, damp cloth or sponge, using lukewarm water and a mild detergent.


Basin or Bathtub Cleaning: For Duette Semi-Opaque 3/8”, 3/4”, Double and Triple Honeycomb on Standard or EasyRise headrails only. Do not immerse any other headrails.

To clean the entire shade, immerse the assembly in lukewarm water with a mild detergent and move it around lightly with your fingers. Wash for about five minutes, then rinse with clean water.

   An innovative method for cleaning Hunter Douglas Duette Shades

Close the shade before removing it from the rinse water. Holding the rails, tilt the shade to allow excess water to escape. Re-install the damp shade back into the window opening and lower the shade all the way to allow it to dry completely.

Important Cautions: Do not immerse Duette blackout fabrics. Do not immerse any Duette battery powered or motorized headrails.

Ultrasonic Cleaning: Professional ultrasonic cleaning is generally a very safe and effective method for comprehensively cleaning a Hunter Douglas Duette honeycomb shade. However, the shade should be handled carefully and only mild cleansing solutions should be used. In addition, the fabric should be in a stacked or closed position when being removed from the tank so that water cannot become trapped in the honeycombs.

Important Cautions: Do not ultrasonically clean Duette blackout fabrics. Do not ultrasonically clean Duette EasyRise shades. The On-Site™ Injection/Extraction Cleaning Process can be used on these (and all other) Duette fabrics.


Duette Honeycomb Shades From Hunter Douglas Absorb Sound

Duette honeycomb shades feature a unique honeycomb construction that "traps" air for superior energy efficiency and provides softly diffused light that cuts the glare and heat. Duette honeycomb shades also are highly sound absorptive.

   The fabric style showcased on the sliding doors above is the Majestic semi-opaque fabric in the 1¼" honeycomb pleat which absorbs 60 percent of reflected sound. Also shown, the Vertiglide hardware system which allows the honeycomb fabric to be oriented vertically with the shade operating sideways. Offering heights up to 120-inches and no bottom rail, Duette with Vertiglide is ideal for covering windows of this type and stacks back to a mere six inches.

The Window Covering Manufacturers Association’s (WCMA) announced the winners of its 2009 Product Innovation Awards in May 2009.

Best New Style Concept in Cellular Shades for 2009

The new Hunter Douglas Duette honeycomb shades offering includes two new Architella fabrics – woven Meritage and Classic, the durable, non-woven fabric that Duette was originally launched in and that remains popular. With these additions, there are now 156 Architella SKUs, meaning that 40% of the Duette product line is composed of this exclusive fabric with its patented honeycomb-within-a-honeycomb construction for maximum control of energy flow through windows.

Also new, a natural street-side color option for six of the 12 Architella Classic colors. While the white street-side color reflects sunlight and increases summer- time energy efficiency, the new natural color option blends with the home’s exterior and meets the requirements of some homeowners associations. Of the 442 fabric SKUs in the collection, 30 percent are new colors, based on the latest trends.

The UltraGlide retractable cord lifting system also now features quieter, more powerful operation and shades can be ordered 50 percent larger than before. There is also a sleek new designer tassel. The EasyRise continuous cord lifting system is now available with the Top-Down/Bottom-Up design option.

The popular UltraGlide, LiteRise and EasyRise lifting systems now share a common headrail and the consistent look of a fabric-covered valance for a uniform appearance when more than one system appears in a room. This also provides superior color coordination and a soft look at the top of the shade. Duette shades boast the most extensive selection of innovative lifting systems and the widest array of fabrics, opacities, pleat sizes, colors and textures.

Best New Style Concept in Cellular Shades and Best Energy Efficiency for 2009

Best Energy Efficiency for 2009

Hunter Douglas Duette Architella honeycomb shades offer a state-of-the-art patented design, with three distinct air pockets, for the highest level of energy efficiency in the Hunter Douglas product line, reducing energy loss through windows by up to 50 percent. They also preserve color and texture in bright sunlight and on opaque fabrics.

What’s more, the Duette Architella design is also the only honeycomb product to provide exceptional pleat retention for perfect symmetry front and back. New to the offering with an upscale, luxurious look, the woven Meritage fabric features interwoven yarns of mixed colors that dazzle with depth and richness and have a soft hand as well. This semi-opaque fabric comes in the ¾-inch pleat size in 12 colors.

Also new, Classic, a durable non-woven that Duette was originally launched in 1985 and that remains very popular. This comes in semi-opaque and opaque fabrics in ¾” and 1¼” pleat sizes in 12 fashionable colors. Six of 12 Duette Architella Classic colors have a natural street-side option. While the white street-side color reflects sunlight and increases summertime energy efficiency, the new natural color option blends with the home’s exterior and meets the requirements of some homeowners associations. These additions bring the total Duette Architella SKUs to 156, nearly 40 percent of the Duette product line. Duette Architella is also now offered in all specialty shapes.
