Zebra Shades – HOW DO THEY WORK?

Zebra Shades are designed to let you determine and choose how much light comes in, its overall brightness and the level of privacy you want as a result.

Sometimes referred to as “Dual Shades” or “Dual Sheers”, Zebra Roller Shades are composed of one long and continuous piece of material designed with a pattern consisting of two stripes or parallel bands of opaque (solid) and sheer (transparent/translucent) fabric that repeats itself sequentially (like the stripes of a zebra, alternating from opaque to sheer (HINT: that's the answer to the fourth question in the first paragraph!).

This fabric is controlled from the top roller and continuously loops around a roller system at the bottom causing the alternating bars of fabric to pass over each other which gives you the ability to impact the colour texture of the room by adjusting the amount of light that comes in.


Take your pick! Drapes’n Shades can design and custom make your Zebra shades in both room lightening and room darkening levels of opacity, from sheer (diffused light) to blackout – it depends on how much light or privacy you require. And with either, you have an endless choice of ways to create unique light filtering effects by simply adjusting the positioning of the blind and aligning the bands to vary the amount of light dispersion and create a desired filtered light effect or specific level of privacy you choose.

For Your Bedrooms

Many people lean towards a room darkening shade that, when fully closed, blocks out close to 85% of the light, making it dark enough to sleep and not be distracted by bright street lamps.

If a total blackout is your preference – Drapes’n Shades has created a unique Dual Shade system where we combine two roller shades together to attain the greatest blackout efficiency possible....99% total darkness! This total blackout system was designed by Drapes’n Shades and includes our exclusive custom-designed ‘reverse’ blackout facia which serves to eliminate light from seeping through on the top. Then, we custom-cut and install side channels to eliminate maximum light seepage by covering light gaps from around the sides and bottom.
