Trapezoidal Windows

Question

Sponsored Links

I have 4 very tall windows that face to the south.
I would like to put the shades on the outside to also help keep the glass cooler when the shades are down.

These windows are also on the second story so access to a pull cord type system would have to be extended and any type of installation would have to take the wind into consideration.

Thanks

Answer

The only outdoor window covering that I'm aware about is exterior shutters. Roller shutters can be made in any shape including trapezoidal and they can also be motorized for you to reach.

Indoor mounted window coverings like cellular shades will also insulate and keep the room (not the glass) cooler.

Large Angled Window
by: Anonymous

I have an angled window that is 99 inches at the base. Are there treatments that can be used with this large of window or do I have to go to a stationary window treatment?

Pentagon and trapizoid

by Jeff

Question

See the picture. What is the solution?

Answer

You want protection from the glare, right? We have a great solution for you without compromising on the view.

Cellular shades that can be opened and closed completely. Close the shades when the sun is glaring in and open them when you want to enjoy the view.

For the pentagon window in the center we have a shade that will compress to the bottom of the window when opened. For the two trapezoid windows take a look at our operable trapezoid window shades where the shade stacks on the angled slope.

Both of these shapes window treatments can be made with Hunter Douglas Applause and Duette light filtering fabric or Architella light filtering and room darkening fabric.

Trapezoid Windows that Face West

Question

We have 8 trapezoid windows that face the west so the sun is a problem. We have seen a "screen" type of covering that diminishes the sun's rays but still lets light in and allows visibility through them. Do you have such a thing and do you have remote control options? These windows are 20+ feet high at the peak. The tallest window is about 10 feet long.

Answer

The closest to what you are looking for would be window film which strongly reduces the sun's glare while still allowing light in and visibility. However window film installed this high needs to be installed professionally due to safety concerns.

Our cellular shades for trapezoid windows are made from light filtering fabrics which only allow light in but blocks the view. They can be pulled up when the sun doesn't shine so strongly so that you can enjoy the view.

Question

My bedroom has a cathedral ceiling with 2 windows measuring L-49" x W-72". One is eye level lenght and the other is above 1st one reaching almost to the ceiling.Would like to block out light and also look nice.

Answer

We have a large choice of window coverings for angled windows as you can see here.

If however you prefer to be able to open the window treatment fully we have a special system for these windows so that you should be able to open them fully when needed and close it fully for privacy and sun protection. You can see more info here.
