Pleated Shades are offered in Day, Day/Night and Night fabric options.
Pleated Day Shades are manufactured with a sheer or see-through type of fabric, which provides light and shade at the same time. Day Only shades would be used in applications where total privacy is not the primary function i.e., sun rooms, vans, etc. Depending on the fabric, there are varying degrees of transparency with this type of shade.
Pleated Day/Night Shades offer the best of both worlds, actually two shades in one. A night fabric will pull all the way down for privacy, or, it can be moved all the way to the top, exposing a full length day shade. Either one can be set in any position for maximum flexibility. Day/Night shades are very popular in a variety of applications including residential, RV, commercial and marine. They also allow for various decor opportunities, as the two different fabrics can be different colors and hues if desired.
Pleated Night Shades provide total privacy when extended to the full down position. A variety of fabric types are available including Stitchbond and others. For those who desire maximum privacy, a blackout liner can be applied to the backside of the fabric. This eliminates nearly all light infiltration. Night Only shades are excellent in a variety of applications, including residential, RV, commercial and marine.

United Shade will manufacture exactly the size you order. Take precautions with your measurements so entire window area is covered and allowances are made to assure a custom fit. If draperies or valances are already installed be sure your measurement for width allows the shade or blind to fit under the current window treatment.
Inside mount shades and blinds are installed inside the window casing.
Outside mount shades and blinds are installed outside the window casing. The shade or blind will cover an area larger than the window itself.
Shades should be kept in the closed or up position when not in use, to maintain pleat retention and minimize dirt and soil build-up. Do not store shades in the down position. This may cause some loss of pleat retention if the shades are not operated on a consistent basis.
Shades can be easily cared for by simply dusting or using a vacuum cleaner attachment. Do not use spot remover, household cleaners or detergents to remove soiled spots,a s these may cause damage to fabric or loss of color from fading.
NOTE: If your recreational vehicle must be stored for an extended period of time, store shades in the up position and cover your windows with additional protection (I.E. Cut out cardboard).
