Most fabrics are mold and mildew resistant for bathrooms, sauna or pool areas. Liners available with most fabrics – Room Darkening liner helps keep out the light. Privacy Liner filters the light for additional privacy. Pleat Plus Shades (Optional) – is available for most fabrics. This system keeps every pleat crisp and uniformly spaced, from the top of the shade right to the very bottom. Hi-Rise System – The continuous cord loop system easily lifts the shade, even large or hard-to-reach shades, and stops the shade exactly where you want. No more puddling cords! The cord tensioner helps with the positioning of cords and keeps your family safe – a child safety feature! Unique cord lock permits easy side to side operation. Optimum cording results in minimal light bleed where cords run through fabric. Small Stacking height – When shade is raised, it virtually disappears.
A Child Safety Kit – Comes with every blind (a cord cleat and screw). It can be installed on the wall to prevent puddling cords. Hi-Rise system has a cord tensioner. Environmentally friendly – Lasting Impressions Pleated Shades carefully consider the environment for healthier living and a lot of the fabrics are part of our GreenProtect™ program.
Café Style – Shade lowers from the top down and from the bottom up.
Daytime/Nighttime – Combines two fabrics in the same shade for function, beauty and total versatility (Sheer fabric by day, opaque fabric by night).
