Your Hunter Douglas Silhouette window shades represent a sizable investment, and with proper care they will last for years to come. These designer shades are built to function like shutters with a sheer fabric on each side to provide ultraviolet protection even when the shutters are open. Because of the delicate nature of the sheer fabric covering the vanes that make up the interior shutter portion, these window coverings require special care to keep them looking and functioning their best.
