Traditional Chain and Cord

Combination Wand/Cord Control
Hunter Douglas products offering a Combination wand/cord provide a single control to traverse the fabric and rotate the vanes.

Bypass Track System

The revolutionary Hunter Douglas UltraGlide® operating system uses a retractable cord mechanism to raise and lower the window shade or shading. Constant cord length means there are never any long, dangling cords to detract from the appearance of the shade. Increased safety for children and pets.
Hunter Douglas offers several wand control options on our vertically oriented window fashions:
- The PermaTilt® wand control system, featured on our Vertical Blinds, combines both tilt and traverse functions in one easy-to-use control, providing a safer environment for children and pets by completely eliminating the standard chain and cord.
- Our Vertical blinds outfitted with the PermAssure® wand eliminate looped pull cords completely, replacing them with a wand that remains safely out of a child’s reach.

Hinged panels, available with each of our Shutter products, are panels that are hinged together and to the window frame. Using T-posts in the center of the opening increases the design possibilities.
Clutch Operated Continuous Loop
One of the most important advantages of Hunter Douglas window fashions over traditional soft window coverings are their ease of operation. A continuous loop, which works on the principle of a pulley, rotates a clutch to raise or lower the shade. From the fully raised position, pulling down on the front half of the loop lowers the shading. The covering is raised by pulling on the rear of the continuous loop.
Our EasyRise™ system, featured on Silhouette® and Nantucket™ window shadings, Vignette® Modern Roman Shades, Pirouette® Window Shadings and Duette® and Applause® honeycomb shades, and Design Studio™ Roman Shades, provides the mechanical advantage needed to raise and lower large window fashions.
The Dual Roller Shade option, found on Designer Roller Shades, allows you to pair two fabrics of varying opacities on one cassette for optimum light control and an intriguing layered effect.
