What is the Value of R-value?

Superior energy efficiency - three distinct air pockets provide increased insulation.


R-value measures a product's ability to keep heat in and cold out. The higher the R-value, the greater the insulation. An R-value of 4.00 will prevent up to 75% heat loss through the window.

Hunter Douglas Duette Architella honeycomb shades, with R-values ranging from 5.48 to 7.73, offer tremendous energy efficiency benefits with distinctive fashion.
