How to chooose a honeycomb shade fabric?
1. Shape of Cells
Honeycomb shades, aslo known as cellular shades, come in different cell shapes, traditional H shaped cells and D shaped cells. D shape cells are designed to hold the accordion shape better. Our soft touch Single Cell shades fabric, Double Cell Shades fabric and Triple Cell shades fabric are manufactured with the D shape cells.
2. Type of Material
Cellular shades fabric or honeycell fabric typically come in two types of fabric, spun lace and point bond. Spun lace(HSL series) is a softer, heavier duty material than point bond (HTM-P series). Spun lace is more effective in insulating heat and coldness than point bond. For the bigger cell, such as 9/16″(38mm) and 3/4″(45mm) . Spun lace(HSL series) is better, because it looks thicker. For 3/8″Cells(25mm) both of them has their own feature. HSL, the color is softer. But The outline of HTM-P is more stronger.
3. Number of Cells
The more cells a honeycomb shade has the better insulation it will provide. Cellular shades are excellent for insulation from heat or cold as well as noise reduction. A double cell shade will provide better insulation than a single cell shade.
