Manual Window Operating Systems

Hunter Douglas is the industry leader in window treatment technology. Whether it’s motorized operating systems or manual systems, Hunter Douglas has created the most innovative methods for controlling and even scheduling, when your window treatments open and close. Even better, you have a variety of choices for most Hunter Douglas window treatment styles. The following is an index of all Hunter Douglas lift systems along with the product they work with.

The Bi-Fold Track System allows up to six shutter panels to be hinged together by connecting them to a top track. Bi-Fold panels can be configured to accommodate sliding glass doors and large windows, supporting the panels and guiding how they fold. Available on NewStyle, Palm Beach and Heritage window treatments.

The Bypass Track System enables shutter panels to slide past each other on top tracks. It’s perfect for sliding glass doors. The Bypass Open Louver System maximizes exterior views because the louvers stay open while sliding or stacking. Available on NewStyle, Palm Beach and Heritage window treatments.

The Clutch-Operated Continuous Cord Loop (also known as Continuous Cord Loop) uses the science of a pulley with a rotating clutch to open or close the shade. The dual-roller shade options work with two fabrics of differing opacities in one cassette that operates with a continuous cord loop for an attractive layered effect and optimum light control. Available on Designer Banded Shades, Designer Roller and Designer Screen Shades.

Combination Wand/Cord System, which is called the PermaTilt® Wand Control System on vertical blinds, offers a single control for rotating and opening vanes and louvers. Because it eliminates the traditional chain and cord, it creates a safer environment for children and pets.

The Cordless Lifting System operates Hunter Douglas Designer Roller Shades and Designer Screen Shades. This traditional, spring-assist system provides enhanced child and pet safety while raising and lowering large window coverings.

Each panel can be arranged in a variety of open and closed positions, allowing the perfect privacy and view-through solution you need at any given time. Duolite can be paired with a range of manual and motorized operating systems. Available on Applause, Duette, Pleated Shades, Silhouettes window treatments.
