Elite High-Lite Shades

If you’re seeking a distinctive look that makes a statement, the revolutionary Elite High-Lite Shade adds personality to a room! For window treatments that leave a lasting impression for both versatility and design.  Elite High-Lite Shades are a popular option among homeowners looking to break away from more traditional styles.  The unique fabric combines the look and performance of traditional shutters and blinds with that of today’s modern roller shades, blending two styles into one design and maximizing on the benefits of both.

These shades alternate horizontal bands of opaque-coloured fabric with sheer inlays in a continuous piece of fabric to allow a balance of natural light and privacy.  When lowered, opaque bands will overlap with the sheer inlays for privacy and room darkening.  Raise the shades a little to align the opaque bands and let the filtered light come through the sheer fabric.  When the shade is raised completely, it disappears into its decorative curved aluminum cassette and allows you to take in the outdoor view.  You can also position it anywhere in between for a custom look that provides privacy, light filtering and views outside.  Elite High-Lite Shades also offer protection from the sun’s harmful UV rays and heat control.

The coloured bands on High-Lite Shade fabrics are available in a variety of widths ranging from 3” to 5.5”. 

Elite High-Lite Shades are also available with Elite Smart Shade automation.  The shade can be operated by remote control, smartphone app, and can be integrated into home automation systems.

Elite Roller Shades

Elite Rollers Shades are classified in 5 distinct categories

Designer Shades fabric collection is filled with decorative patterns, colours and textures.  These fabrics are designed to filter light as it enters the room but still offer UV blocking and glare reducing features.

Solar Shades are fabrics designed to minimize the amount of sun rays entering a room while maximizing your view of the outdoors.  The collection of shades features four main categories of fabrics to suit any budget and application.

High Performance Shade collection offers the most advanced solar shade fabrics in the industry.  These fabrics are specifically designed to cut glare, preserve outside views, and save energy costs.

Green fabric shades are woven from polyester yarns and are completely PVC Free.

Blackout fabrics prevent any light from passing through and are ideal for presentation rooms, bedrooms or any space where total light blockage is ideal.  For an ultimate blackout experience, consider light blocking side channels.  These aluminum channels install between the fabric and the window frame to block all light from passing through.

Roller Shades are offered with a range of top-treatment options including a variety of aluminum cassettes, fascias or fabric valances.

Sheer Horizontal Shades

Sheer Horizontal Shades are an elegant light, and airy window treatment.  The fabric gracefully filters light creating a soft ambient setting.  The fabric vanes float between two soft sheer layers, a combination that provides you with control over privacy and light.

The vanes can be rotated, permitting a veiled view of the outdoors and a soft flow of light indoors.  Even when open you have privacy as the sheer fabric diffuses direct views from outside of your home.  When closed fully, Sheer Horizontal Shades become completely opaque, creating privacy and security.

Sheer Horizontal Shades also help to block out harmful UV rays and harsh glare from the sun without having to completely block your view of the outdoors.

Elite Sheer Horizontal Shades can be ordered in 2” or 3” vane sizes in either lighting filtering or room darkening fabrics. 

The Sheer Horizontal Shades can also be motorized with the Elite Smart Shade automation.

Cellular Shades are constructed of unique honeycomb-shaped air pockets that run the length of the fabric.  These pockets offer the best energy savings and superior insulation.

Roman Shades 

Roman Shades offer a modern twist on the traditional standard, with slim and sleek colour-coordinated aluminum headrail.  The bottom edge of the shade is finished in a similar fashion, with a colour matching aluminum bottom rail. This provides a clean and sleek look for today’s modern decor. 

Elite Roman Shade fabrics are available in a wide collection of light filtering, room darkening, or blackout options.  Roman shades are especially effective as blackout shades (compared with roller shades) as they provide excellent edge-to-edge coverage within the window and minimal light gaps along the sides.  Available in two control mechanisms, Continuous Cord Loop, which provides easy lifting of larger Roman Shades, and Standard Pull Cord mechanism.

Elite Panel Shades

Dressing a wide set of windows or patio doors often presents a challenge with most window coverings.  Panel Shades offer a perfect solution for spanning those wide window expanses and can even be used as room dividers to create separation and privacy in large and multi-functional areas.

Fabric panels hang from a sleek white track that can be installed for ceiling or wall mount applications.  Depending on the width of your window or patio door, tracks can be ordered with 3-panel, 4-panel, 5-panel and 6-panel configurations.  Each panel glides smoothly along the track and provides total privacy when closed.  The track can be covered with an optional valance and matching fabric insert.  Panel Shades can be ordered with left stack, right stack, or centre split configurations. 

Controlling the light in your home makes Elite Panel Shades both a cost-effective and energy-saving solution.  In the summer months, having the panels closed will block out the sun’s rays and help keep your rooms cooler.  Alternatively, keeping them open in the winter months can allow for the sunlight to naturally warm the room and keep your energy bills lower. Elite panel shades installed on the windows of a high rise condo blocking out the bright city lights
