Hunter Douglas Silhouette Window Shadings are available in a Low-Profile, Tilt-Only application that offers a less intrusive, streamlined appearance.

Silhouette tilt-only sidelight window shadings utilize a standard headrail and are operated by a cord loop. Now, a new type of sidelight shading for narrow window openings and French doors is available, featuring a sleek low-profile headrail.

With the low-profile sidelight design, a headrail tab or optional wand is attached to a vane-shaped pivoting headrail. The tab or wand is used to pivot the headrail, which in turn tilts the vanes. Whether the vanes are opened or closed, the unobtrusive headrail gracefully blends into the shading.

Both types of sidelight tilt-only shadings must always remain in the fully lowered position. Width of sidelight shadings ranges from 6" to 30".
