Silhouette® shades

Silhouette® shades at a glance

Silhouette® shades have two layers of translucent or room darkening fabric separated by a series of floating, soft fabric vanes. When vanes are closed the shades provide privacy and 99% UV protection. When vanes are open the shades diffuse the light, giving the room a soft glow.

Fabric choices and vane sizes

Translucent fabrics provide softly diffused light and prevent UV fading, while still allowing you to see the view. Room darkening fabrics provide greater privacy, although some light still filters into the room. There are three vane sizes - 50mm, 65mm and 75mm. View fabrics here.

Operating systems

Choose from three operating systems - EasyRise®, UltraGlide® and PowerRise®. A Luxaflex dealer can demonstrate each system and discuss the benefits with you. You can find out more about operating systems here.
