Silhouette Detailing Options

Silhouette ClearView

Silhouette Clearview comparision

ClearView sheer option is a dark sheer that is more open and allows better view through when the shade is tilted open. The vanes are suspended between two sheer fabric facings and offer a wide selection of beautiful fabrics and optional features that completely disappear into the head rail when fully raised.


Silhouette Halo

• Full-range vane rotation provides maximum flexibility in redirecting sunlight throughout the day and protecting furniture, flooring and decor from harmful UV rays.
• Dual-layer vanes paired with ClearView sheers provide superior light diffusion and view-through.
• Designed to create a soft glow and eliminate harsh shadowing, dual-layer dimensional vanes enhance the color and texture for a distinctly beautiful appearance.
• Silhouette Halo shadings have a sleek bottom rail designed to rock on the window sill as the shading over-rotates. The bottom panel remains a consistent size and provides a clean, uniform look from top to bottom.
