The Duolite Collection of Window Treatments from Closet Works

The Duolite® Option: All in One Privacy and Light Diffusion

Hunter Douglas logo mark
Duolite® Offers Both Maximum Privacy and Ultimate Light Control in a Single Window Covering, Putting Day-Night Convenience at Your Fingertips.

The Duolite® dual-opacity option for your window treatments perfectly answers your desire for the best of both worlds — soft, natural light or soothing darkness. Two shades in one, the Duolite® feature offers maximum light control by using two separate fabric panels to achieve a 'day/night' level of convenience, providing limitless options for privacy and light control.

The Duolite® operation is used in conjunction with other Hunter Douglas operating systems, including PowerView® Motorization.

Duolite® is available on several favorite window treatment lines from Hunter Douglas, including:


Diffused Light and Room Darkening. Now in a Single Roller Shade! — With Designer Roller Duolite® Shades, you don't have to choose between view-through and privacy. A light-filtering sheer or semi-sheer fabric and an opaque liner are combined into one shade to give you the best of both worlds.

Introducing Vignette® Modern Roman Shades With Duolite® — Imagine a Roman shade that has uniform, contoured or flat-fabric folds, and no exposed rear cords. Now consider that shade in a light-filtering or sheer fabric with a second room-darkening back panel — both of which roll on a single headrail/roller. It's day-night convenience at your fingertips. That's the new Vignette® Modern Roman Shade with optional Duolite®.

When you order your Duette® and Applause® cellular honeycomb shades with Duolite®, you are really getting two shades in one. A translucent honeycomb shade with superior light diffusion is combined with a second opaque section of shade on a single headrail. The different sections can be raised or lowered to set the privacy and light level. Set the entire window covering to the sheer section to allow maximum filtered light penetration. Use the opaque room-darkening section for maximum privacy. The sections can be adjusted depending on light and privacy needs throughout the day.
