The length of intense sunlight is increasing as summer draws near. Function of your window treatments is more important than ever. Using them frequently requires effortless operation to adjust both privacy and light control options, while still savoring your beautiful view. Customized operation, combined with the peace of mind for child-safe features, will provide you with the opportunity to relax, enjoying your breathtaking landscape even more. Individual window treatments sometimes require different operating systems based on how they are used – even if they function in the same shared space. With the LiteRise or UltraGlide Lift Systems you have customized control for your window treatments. Based on the function and needs of each specific window, you will determine which operating system will suit your lifestyle and home. The best part about it is that you can have both, and with the innovative design features, the window treatments will coordinate nicely, regardless of lifting system. LiteRise Cordless Lift System. By simply placing your finger on the bottom rail, an upward movement will raise your window treatment. To adjust the amount of light entering, or close it altogether, the opposite motion on the bottom rail will pull the window treatment into place. Effortless operation, with exact placement. There are no cords, allowing for enhanced child and pet safety. Functioning easily in high traffic areas, the LiteRise Cordless Lift System is a wonderfully efficient way to operate your window treatments. UltraGlide Lifting System. Featuring one retractable cord, at a consistent length for child and pet safety, the UltraGlide lift system provides you with the ease of function to raise and lower your window treatments. Simply apply motion to the cord with a few short pumps, allowing you to set the window treatment in the exact position you need for privacy and light control. The retractable cord is valuable for windows in high traffic areas where access might have obstacles. Mixing Lifting Systems. Hunter Douglas continually provides beautiful versatility with product combination, to offer clients the opportunity to coordinate with other window treatments in a shared space. Preserving the complementary design, while customizing the lift system for the function of the window treatment is such a tailored experience. The function of your window treatments should be customized to your lifestyle. Let’s take a look at how you might mix and match for the perfect combination. The LiteRise System perfectly fits for the function and use of your Vignette Modern Roman Shades featured throughout your open concept kitchen. However, the roman shade covering the window above your sink would best function with the UltraGlide System, allowing you to reach the cord to position the shade without hassle. Your Vignette Modern Roman Shades provide a beautiful look, with coordinating fabric valances, but even more important, the shades will have customized function just for your home. You may prefer to mix the lifting systems for the Duette Architella shades in your master suite. The LiteRise System provides effortless control of both the light and privacy within your bedroom, but the window in your master bath is not as convenient to reach. Existing behind the tub, the window treatment would more easily function with the retractable cord of the UltraGlide lift system, allowing you the enjoyment of light control and privacy options. Your family room may require both the LiteRise and UltraGlide lift systems due to placement of furniture, in regard to the location of your windows. Considering the use and function of your window treatments will help you decide which window treatments should utilize which operating system. The wonderful benefit of using both lift systems is the complementary design features for coordination of fabrics to offer your home a finished look. We understand the importance of function for your window treatments. Customization is the key, allowing you to enjoy your beautiful view, while easily adjusting your window treatments to the perfect setting.
