  Introducing state-of-the-art Nantucket honeycomb shades with UltraGlide lifting system from Hunter Douglas.

The revolutionary Hunter Douglas UltraGlide system for Nantucket Window Shadings uses a retractable cord mechanism to raise, lower and tilt the shade. When the cords are moved to a slight angle, the shade gently lowers itself. This movement of the cord releases spring tension in a slow, controlled manner and the bottom rail floats down.

To stop the lowering at any point, just move the cord to the opposite angle.

To raise the shade, simply pull on the cord using short strokes. Each time you pull, the cord retracts to its original length.

Constant cord length means there are never any long, dangling cords to detract from the appearance of the shade.

Increased safety for children and pets.
