Our Most Energy Efficient Cellular Shades
Cellular Shades are the perfect solution if you are looking to maximize energy efficiency in your home or office. These innovative window shades are designed to trap air in the center of the shade creating a layer of insulation between the window and the building interior.
Cellular Shades are available in single or double cells. This innovative window covering also reduces noise from outside due to the air pockets formed in between the shades. Cellular Shades are available in a wide choice of fabrics, colours, and cell sizes.

Cellular Shades Key Features
It’s easy to see why cellular shades are the most popular window coverings at Wholesale Blind Factory. Cellular blinds are visually pleasing, offer good insulation, and can be customized in a variety of ways. The following are the main features of cellular shades:
Single Or Double Cell Available
Cellular shades are available in both single and double cell options. Single cell blinds only have one layer of cells while double cell blinds are made up of two smaller layers, one closer to the room and one closer to the window. Double cell offers better insulation from loud noise and is more energy-efficient. Double cells’ smaller rows give it a more busy look which is good for offices but family members may not be a fan.
Light Filtering Or Blackout
Light-filtering cellular shades offer varying levels of isolation depending on the thickness and opacity of the fabric. Most fabrics provide privacy, but others show silhouettes. Blackout cellular shades come in vinyl or fabric and are designed to provide maximum privacy while blocking out light. All blackout cellular blinds provide 100% privacy and include a vinyl backing to help block light. Depending on how they are fitted, blackout cellular blinds may have light gaps.
Visibility Through Shade
Even though cellular shades are made to filter sunlight, some of the natural light passes through. The degree of how visible the product is depends on your preferences. Different materials yield different styles as well as different levels of transparency. Some people like to have a bit of view out of the shade while some choose to go for a more private feel.

Installation guide for installing cellular shades
- Setup Mounting Brackets – For inside-mount blind brackets, mark 2½ inches on each side of the window opening. Shades on the outside of the window frame. Put a mark 2½ inches away from each blind side.
- Attach your mounting brackets – Depending on your model, you can screw brackets into the wall or window frame. Make a hole where the screws will go by drilling or hammering. After drilling holes, put screws in them. Use drywall anchors if you are mounting without studs. Blinds that have a lot of brackets might be wider
- Fit the headrail – The hardest part is the part with brackets. Cellular shades have a headrail that is easy to put together. Pull them up and hook them onto the brackets.
- Examine and test out your shades – Make sure your cellular shades move easily and stop at the right height. Raise each shade one by one. Brackets that aren’t smooth might not be level. There are blind strings that don’t work. There is a chance of installation damage. Fix the blind strings by following the directions from the manufacturer.
