Hospitality and Hotel Window Treatments: Sheer Shades, Solar Screen Shades & Dual Shades


The hospitality industry has a unique set of needs for both the private and common areas they maintain. We’ve got functional, beautiful solutions for every one, addressing glare control, privacy and comfort for both guests and workers.

Solar Shades for Daytime Privacy

When guests are in their rooms, they want to allow in light, and a view if there is one, without being seen from the outside. Solar Screen Shades are the clean, updated version of sheer draperies, providing privacy on the darker side of the treatment- in this case, the room interior. Light enters the room in a controlled fashion, but heat and glare are controlled and the guest can still see outside. In locations where a view is undesirable, translucent fabrics allow light filtering and management, but eliminate view-through.

Night-time Privacy and Room Darkening Shades

Every hotel room needs room darkening capacity, as well as night time privacy with zero view-through. Insolroll Blackout Shades provide complete privacy, whether day or night. For guests wishing to sleep during daylight hours, Blackout Shades stop all light from passing through the fabric. In cases where complete darkness is desired, Insolroll’s Audio-visual accessories are available to block light from entering at the sides and bottom of the shade.
