Artisan Select Shades | Energy Efficiency

When fully closed, the honeycomb cellular construction of Artisan Select cellular shades helps to control the temperature of a room by either keeping warm or cool air out, or locking warm or cool air in. They also keep a room cooler by blocking harsh sunlight during summer months. Artisan Select shades trap harmful UV rays, keeping them out of your room and protecting the interior of your home from sun fading.
