Dressing a wide set of windows or patio doors often presents a challenge with most window coverings. Finding a window treatment for these areas that is seamless, cohesive, stylish and practical can leave many homeowners feeling lost and frustrated. 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 multifunctional areas.
Our fabric panels hang from a sleek track that can be installed for ceiling or wall mount applications. Each fabric panel glides smoothly along the track and provides total privacy when closed. The track can be covered with an optional valance, depending on your window, budget, and desired aesthetic. These long, vertical panels of fabric are elegant and create a sophisticated look in your room while offering total control over the amount of natural light in the space. The panels form a neat stack when open and can allow for a completely unobstructed view of the outdoors and allow the maximum amount of light to flow in.
They open and close with ease and are easy to care for and maintain, making them a great choice for covering large windows, or for use in a room with a combination of both small and large windows.
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 down will block out the sun’s rays and help to keep your rooms cooler. Blocking the UV rays when they are strongest in the summer months can also help to protect your home and furnishings from damage and fading due to the UV rays. Alternatively, keeping them open in the winter months can allow for the sunlight to naturally warm the room and help to keep your energy bills lower.
Elite Panel Shades are available with 3, 4, 5 and 6 channel tracks and can be controlled with left draw, right draw or centre split configurations. They are easy to open and close and require minimal effort to change the privacy and light level according to your needs and desires. Fabrics may be selected from our Designer and Solar Shade Collections and come in a wide variety of styles, colours and textures to suit your specific design tastes. More sheer fabrics will allow for a softer look during the day, providing a gentle light filter while eliminating harsh glare, while more opaque fabrics can create a higher sunlight shield. We even offer optional bars that can be added to the panels for a shoji panel decor style to suit a Japanese aesthetic.
