Elite High-Lite Shades

If you’re seeking a distinctive look that makes a statement, the revolutionary Elite High-Lite® Shade certainly adds personality to a room! For window treatments that leave a lasting impression for both versatility and design, Elite High-Lite® Shades are becoming 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 unlike any other window treatment. 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 to create a soft and peaceful look similar to that of a Venetian blind. When the shade is raised completely, it disappears into its decorative curved aluminum cassette and allows you to completely 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.

This remarkably modern and stylish shade allows for you to maintain your privacy while delivering outdoor views. The unique blend of alternating fabrics is stylish and sophisticated, adding to the design element of the room. There are many possibilities for creating a look and feel that work well both aesthetically and functionally in your home with Elite High-Lite® Shades.

The coloured bands on High-Lite® Shade fabrics are available in two distinct sizes:

  • 3″ L band: suitable for small windows
  • 5″ XL band: suitable for large floor-to-ceiling windows or loft style windows.

For added benefit and convenience, Elite High-Lite® Shades are also available with Elite Smart Shade™ automation so you can control the amount of light and privacy with the touch of a button or via your home automation system. We offer a variety of colours and a vast array of elegant fabric styles and textures. They are also customized in width and length and can accommodate many different window sizes, making them a stylish and practical addition to any room in your home.
