Options for Homes With Pets
We all want our furry friends to feel comfortable and safe. Pets are naturally curious and like to see what’s going on outside, so keeping blinds or shades raised partway can help keep your pet from damaging your window coverings. As you begin a search for pet-friendly treatments, be sure to avoid mini blinds, fabric shades, fabric verticals, draperies, and corded blinds or shades. Here are a few product selections from Hunter Douglas that will add style and are pet-safe.
Vertical Solutions Vinyl Blinds – An economical solution for sliding or patio doors. If closed, your pets can nudge the slats to see outside and then they will fall back into place. The vinyl slats are also very easy to clean.
Designer Roller & Screen Shades – You can raise the shade to a comfortable position, so your pet can see out. They offer a sleek modern style with remarkably smooth operation, ease of lifting and the smallest light gap in the industry. Pets can sneak behind the shade without the threat of the shade falling down
NewStyle™ Hybrid or Palm Beach™ Polysatin Shutters – Both are very durable and difficult for pets to maneuver open. Shutters can withstand slight to medium pressure. Available in grain-like finishes, whites and off-white colors, and three slat sizes. Dust with a cloth
Everwood® Alternative Wood Blinds – You can tilt open or closed the slats, so pets can see out. They are easy to clean. More durable than wood, but be mindful that a large dog could still snap the slats
Hunter Douglas offers a variety of lift systems, from standard manual operations to motorized systems. They all offer pet and child safety, and some offer more. UltraGlide® is a retractable cord system that lets you raise and lower your shades with no ugly, dangling external cords. LiteRise® is a cordless system that lets you gently raise and lower your shades with slight pressure from your hand. PowerView® motorization is a wireless operating system that can be used with a PowerView® Pebble® remote or with your mobile device or tablet, even if you’re not at home.
