Things You Did Not Know About Hunter Douglas Window Treatments. Operation Features

Many people have heard about Hunter Douglas and that they are the window treatment industry leader. You know that if you need highest quality, elegant, and functional window coverings and the greatest choice of materials, colors, and shapes, this is the brand you need to go to. You may even know their most famous shade and shutter collections. However, there are some features that remain unknown. Today, we decided to summarize the available operating options and products they can be ordered with.


What looks like an ordinary, traditional blind cord, is actually an innovative mechanism. The cord is a retractable system of constant length. That eliminates dangling and insures your child and pet safety. It is also much more aesthetically pleasing. You raise and lower the window treatments by pulling on the cord.
