As you can infer from our name, we at Blinds America specialize in blinds of all kinds. One of the most popular choices that we offer is our cellular honeycomb blinds, which are designed to provide an added layer of insulation and noise cancelling. In this article, we’ll provide a brief overview of how these blinds work in order to help you decide if they are right for your needs.
Cellular honeycomb blinds work in a similar way to double-paned windows, or the airlocks in department stores. That is, they create pockets of air that act as barriers against heat energy transfer. The shades consist of at least two layers of fabric that hang down, which are spaced slightly apart to create a gap in between. This gap is sectioned off into cells with more strips of fabric that join the two sides of the blinds together. The outer layer helps deflect heat energy from the sun, and then the majority of the energy that does make it past that barrier stays trapped inside the cells, with only a little heat making it all the way into your home. In the winter, this process works in reverse, trapping the heat from your furnace inside to keep you more comfortable rather than letting it escape through your window glass.
Our team hopes that this information about cellular honeycomb blinds has been helpful. If you have further questions about them, we encourage you to give us a call to consult with one of our experts.
