Honeycomb Shades Are A Sweet Choice For Your Home, Wilmington, NC

The honeycomb of the honeybee has been admired and wondered about from ancient times on. According to Greek Mythology the skillful craftsman, Daedalus was said to  manufacture the first man made honeycomb 3000 years ago. The design of honeycomb structures are varied, but the common feature of these structures is an “array of hollow cells formed between thin vertical walls.” Cellular or honeycomb shades which were introduced in 1985 are one product that has benefited from this amazing geometric design.

Honeycomb shades have a unique pleated construction resembling the honeycomb of a beehive which is an important energy saving feature. The design of this shade traps an insulating layer of air in the space created within each cell which helps to keep heat in and with an additional insulating feature can filter out 99% of harmful UV rays. Honeycomb shades are available in single, double, or triple cells and can be used horizontally or vertically in specialty shaped windows, sliding doors, and skylights.
