Cellular Shades

Cellular shades, also called honeycomb shades, are a strong pick for families looking for more energy efficiency. According to the U.S. Department of Energy, honeycomb shades are the window treatment with the best R-value. A calculation of the insulating capability of different materials, high R-values produce a notable difference for people searching for energy savings.

Honeycomb shades operate by creating pockets of air that stop warmth from escaping during the cold season or from coming in during the warmer months. And with possibility to select single-cell, double-cell or triple-cell construction, you can find the perfect fit for your needs.

Interested in your options? Louver Shop of South Georgia offers additional efficiency and style with Hunter Douglas Duette® Honeycomb Shades. With the Trielle™ selection, your Duette shades offer 20 percent higher efficiency—thanks to six layers of fabric and five insulating pockets. Or think about Applause® Honeycomb Shades for triple-cell construction.

Plantation Shutters

Plantation shutters are a customized, long-lasting window covering. Generally created from hardwood, these energy efficient window coverings offer a factor of classic style, better property value and boosted energy efficiency.

Because they are mounted right to the window’s frame, plantation shutters have fewer places for warmth to slip out during the cold season. They also shade your rooms from heat and light during the hotter days. They also provide better light filtering performance.

At Louver Shop of South Georgia, you can choose from the Heritage or Signature Shutter lines to discover a great fit for your house.

Made fully from our exclusive polymer material, LouverWood™ Shutters insulate up to three times better than wood. And when you have to have the best of both worlds, our Classic Shutters include a wood frame and PVC louvers.

Roman Shades

When drawn open, Roman shades tuck tidily to make a stack of fabric. When closed, they produce a single layer of fabric between your window and your space. For your best chance at energy efficiency, select a heavier fabric. Louver Shop of South Georgia has a variety of fabrics to work with any style and efficiency need.
