When you want to maintain the amount of light in your home or office, Horizontal Window Shadings allow you to simply cut the brightness of the light, to give your room a warm and cozy feeling.
Because these shadings are constructed from sheer fabric, you can still bring the beauty of the outdoors inside.

Horizon 2\" Sheer Light Filtering Window Shadings are perfect if you like the look of 2\" blinds but would like a little more privacy than the wood blinds or fauxwoods give when rotated open. The 2\ louver is in the center with a sheer fabric on the front and back of the louver so when rotated open you look through the sheer fabric. The sheer material adds some privacy while still enabling you to see your view outside. The 2 inch vista light filtering window shades have a beautiful, soft look to them which are suitable in formal settings while also looking great as a casual window treatment too. Our sheer horizontals are the Prestige Florentine Soft Sheers brand. These are similar to the Comfortex Shangri-La and Verosol Vienna Window Shadings.
The 2" window shadings will cut out the direct sunlight while still filling the room with a glowing subtle light. They have the functionality of a blind with the soft look of draperies. The louvers can be rotated to different angles to adjust the light and the view or you can lift them all the way up to the top of the window where they virtually disappear into the headrail. The control is a continuous loop cord which lifts and lowers the shade. The cord always remains the same length unlike other types of window blinds that have a lift cord that gets longer hanging on the floor when the blind is lifted. With the continuous loop control the shade can be stopped in any height position that you want it at.
Head Rail and Bottom Rail are color coordinated to match the shade.
Continuous Cord Loop Lift System comes standard.
The 2\" Soft Fabric Louvers can be rotated open while down or anywhere partially raised.
Horizontal Fabric Louvers are opaque and the front and rear fabric facing is sheer.

INSIDENOTE ON FABRIC LENGTH
The finished dimensions for both width and height may vary +⅛" from OUTSIDE
your ordered measurements. For all mounting types, the shade will
measure the length ordered when the vanes are in the open or
"view-through" position. However, the height will be ⅜" longer when
the vanes are in the closed position. As a result on an inside mount,
a slight puckering can occur on the lower-most sheer section because
of the contact with the window sill. To compensate, slightly raise the open closed
shading until the rail begins to lift off the window sill.
If preferred, the shade can be ordered ⅜" less than the window
opening's measured height. In this case, the bottom rail will be
positioned ⅜" above the sill when the vanes are in the open position
(see diagram at right). Rotating the vanes closed will cause the bottom ⅜"
rail to touch the window sill, closing the light gap between the sill and
When Sheer Horizontal Shades are installed side by side, cell alignment can be guaranteed with in �" only if:
a) The shades are the same colour and ordered at the same time.
b) The sum of the widths of all shades needing alignment is less than 112".
c) Side by side alignment must be specified when the order is placed.
Precise width and height measurements are critical. Please use a metal measuring tape for best accuracy when taking
measurements. The headrail must be installed perfectly level and installed evenly to ensure smooth operation. For
Inside Mount, it is recommended to check whether the mounting surface is level and consistent. If your soffit needs to
be leveled, this should be done before measuring.
Measure across the width of your window opening in three different places: top, middle and bottom. Measurements
should be taken within the window jamb. Provide the smallest of the three measurements to Elite - be exact! Elite will
make the necessary deductions to fit the window opening. Measure the length of the window opening from the underside
of the soffit to the surface of the window sill in two places; use the smallest of these two measurements.
Measure the exact width and length of the area to be covered. On the width, allow at least 1�" of an overlap on each
side. An overlap of 3" on each side is recommended. Be sure to take into consideration any obstructions such as,
moldings, locks, and window cranks.

Oversize Products Shipping Fee:
If your package is 96 inches or over in width or length it will be shipped by common carrier (semi truck) from the nearest manufacturing facility to you. There will be a .00 oversize shipping charge for any order with products that are 96 inches or more in width or length. This charge is per manufacturer. Meaning if you order two oversized products and they are from two different manufacturers (two different brands) then there will be TWO charges for a total of 0 shipping. But, if you have more than one product over 96 inches at it is from same manufacturer you will only pay one oversize fee. The fee is per order, not per blind. Excluding all Plantation Shutters, which incurs a 0.00 flat shipping fee per manufacturer.
