In this last installment of our blog series, Privacy and Sun Control, we will be featuring how Extra Density Weaving helps maintain the character of a natural woven shade while enhancing privacy.

Our Woven-to-Size methodology is a true made-to-order weaving and crafting process. Because of this, we are able to offer Extra Density Weaving. Extra Density Weaving is the process of two weft fibers woven together, rather than one, providing roughly 200% density. This increases the shade’s durability and opacity.

Extra Density Weaving can also be specified at the top of the shade or as a valance, concealing the operating componentry.

Extra Density Weaving is available in selected weaves from the Woven-to-Size Grassweave collection.

As a continuation of our blog series on privacy and sun control, we are featuring how to maintain the beauty of a natural roman shade with the flexibility of privacy and light control.

The Dual-Shade system is designed to provide maximum flexibility with a simple and easy-to-specify concept. A custom shade (roman or roller) made from liner or performance fabric is mounted directly behind the natural roman shade on a shared headrail. Liner shades are available in varied densities, from sheer to blackout. This system upholds the qualities of the natural shade, candling light into a room, while offering more flexibility than a lined Roman shade.

We are constantly engineering innovative solutions and techniques that improve our shade security. The new tension device is crafted for our manual clutch systems to ensure efficient and proper installation, continuously keeping the cord loops taut. If a shade is not installed correctly, the clutch system will refuse to operate. Its durable construction and child safe qualifications enhances any home.

In addition to its safety benefits, the tension device is now available in five different colors, coordinating well with our new bead chain. Collectively, these two are designed to harmoniously integrate with the natural colors of our handwoven weaves. The tension device can also be paired with our cord loop and metal chain. This sleek mechanism can be quickly installed as an inside or outside mount. It is a standard for all clutch-operated roller and roman shades.

Our new bead chain is standard for all manual clutch-operated roller shades, and is an option for manual clutch-operated roman shades.

For more information about these devices, please contact Customer Relations at 888.582.8780 or hfcr@hartmannforbes.com.

Natural light and how it interacts and filters through our woven textiles is fundamental to the beauty and character of our natural woven shades. Some projects, however, require more privacy, sun control or furnishing protection.

Retrofitting a shade with a liner is one of the most common post-sale requests. It’s a process that can be time consuming and costly for the interior designer, so it’s important to consider your privacy options early in the specification process to avoid mistakes.

When selecting the proper liner for your shade you should consider the level of privacy and protection from sunlight, the degree of darkness desired, as well as the weight of the weave in relation to the weight of the liner.

We offer a full range of liners in three collections that are designed to color coordinate with your natural woven shade:

The SHEER COLLECTION offers a lightweight refined fabric prized for its delicate, light-filtering effect. Sheer liner adds body, weight and protection to woven shades without compromising the open-weave light-filtering characteristics.

The TRANSLUCENT COLLECTION provides a deeper level of privacy and protection, to both the woven shade and the interior, yet shapes and shadows remain recognizable.

The BLACKOUT COLLECTION offers complete privacy and total protection from the sun.

If you have questions about these privacy upgrades please feel free to contact your local Showroom Representative or Hartmann&Forbes directly at 888.582.8770.
