Applause® honeycomb shades

The beauty of Applause® shades goes beyond what meets the eye. Because of the patented honeycomb design, each shade acts as an insulator, keeping out the cold in winter and heat in summer.

Lots of light, not so much, just a glimpse, or none at all. These light control variations are easy to achieve with Applause® shades. The translucent nature of Affinity® and Legends™ gives you the light you want with the privacy you need. The Applause blackout fabric blocks 99% of all exterior light for maximum privacy.

Applause® honeycomb shades are beautiful, yet practical, with no visible cords, holes or seams. Your choice of colors are timeless ranging from neutral cream and white, to muted blue and warm gold, all with a neutral white back for a uniform exterior look. Applause offers several beautiful fabric and pleat options available in 3/8”, 3/4” and blackout double honeycomb construction that traps air and acts as an insulator to help keep out the summer heat and winter cold.

Applause® shades hold their shape beautifully. The unique honeycomb design ensures the pleats will always remain full, crisp and perfectly even. The seamless, softly textured fabric has no visible cords or unsightly cord holes.

Applause® honeycomb shades cover skylights, sliding glass doors and unusual window shapes like arches and circles in style. Applause Vertiglide™ is the perfect application for covering large expanses of windows like sliders. Applause EasyRise™ and Applause Easy Glide® provide continuous cord loop systems to make raising and lowering shades as easy as possible. And the top-down/bottom-up option allows shades to both lower from the top and raise from the bottom.
