Iris Window Coverings offers Cellular and Pleated Skylight Shades

Cellular Shades and Pleated Shades

Skylights can create architectural visual interest in homes or offices with high ceilings or sloped walls, while also providing additional natural light to interior spaces.

But these windows are often a source of unwanted heat loss, heat gain and UV exposure.

Thus, Skylight Window Coverings can protect against UV damage, while also helping to insulate the space and lower energy bills.

Skylight Window Coverings come in many different forms. The primary types are Louver Shading Systems or Roller Shading Systems for use in either interior or exterior applications, or Cellular Shades or Pleated Shades for use in interior situations only.

All are available in a number of styles, and from a variety of vendors. Most are motorized for client convenience, but can also be manually operated.

Cellular Shades and Pleated Shades

Cellular shades and pleated shades can be manufactured with a special lifting system for skylights.

These can be motorized, but can also be manually operated (with a 116" extension pole), and will work on any slope or in any orientation.

Consisting of layers of pleated material, for this reason they're energy efficient. These layers form cells that trap air in them, creating a layer of insulation, keeping the heat outside in the summer and inside in the winter.
