Shade-O-Matic's Horizontal Sheer creates a magical sense of light within any room. It combines the elegant sheer of a shade with the light control of a horizontal blind, letting you create an infinite range of light intensities. When fully opened, you will enjoy an almost complete view of the outside with warmly diffused light. When tilted to varying degrees, your view and light are softened. When fully closed, you will experience an elegant privacy without total darkness. The design of the headrail creates a self-valance, and best of all, the fabric is anti-static, dust and stain resistant. All Horizontal Sheers have a high-rise continuous cord loop system, and a cord tensioner that keeps cords taut and away from children. Automation is also available.
