Trapezoid Windows above Sliding Doors



by Cheryl
(Montclair, NJ)



Question:

Hi,

I have two trapezoid windows above two sets of 8 foot sliding glass doors side by side. I am trying to decide what window covering to put on the sliding glass doors and what, if any, window coverings to put on the upper angled window.

Angled Cathedral Windows (4)




by Phyllis Wimer
(Broken Arrow, Ok)


Question

We have 4 cathedral windows on the west side of our home, the afternoon sun has become a problem since we lost many trees in an ice storm. We do not want to lose the view from these windows, but the sun comes in pretty fiercely in the afternoon. Can you give us some ideas for covering them?

Answer:

The ideal thing for trapezoid windows is our cellular shades that can be opened completely. These can be matched with your sliding doors if you use vertiglide, which is cellular shades in the vertical direction.

Motorized Trapezoid Window

by Tom
(Oshkosh,Wi.)

Question

Can a trapezoid window be motorized? Windows were hard wired in construction to the high side of the trapezoid.

2 windows are 68.75 wide by 90 on the high side and 63.25 on the low side. 1 window is 92.75 wide by 48.75 on the high side and 13 on the low side. The other window is 68.75 wide by 44.25 on the high side and 17.75 on the low side. A total of 4 trapezoid windows.

Answer

The trapezoid cellular shades can now be motorized however there are limitations:

  • The height and width cannot be more than 72 inches each.

  • The angle cannot be too steep.

  • The height of the taller side cannot be more than double of the shorter side.

Almost a triangle or almost a rectangle?

Question:

My window is 11Lx60wx36Lx64w it's sort of a triangle on top of a rectangle but with impossible measurements.I have 2 of these too cover. And these 2 windows sit about 1 foot above rectangle windows that measures 24Lx60W. I need covers for all of these because I can't sit in my livingroom between 5pm and 7pm without the sunshine beating down on me. So my question, What can put over them that won't look ridiculous? There is a picture attached.

Answer:

The shape of you window is called a trapezoid. We have special trapezoid window shades that open and close fully. They are made from cellular shade material that stacks on the angled slope.

For more information look at our trapezoid window shade page here.

The lower shade can be matched with a matching shade.
