Standard Braket Double Cell Shade Sideview and Bottom Rail Standard shades in bedroom Standard Lift

The Top Down/Bottom Up option allows you to open the shade from the bottom and lower it from the top for privacy and views.

These shades have two cords - one for top opening and one for bottom opening. The cords are both right and left.


  • Spring-grip Mounting Bracket: Easy install/Easy removal. Low profile design provides minimal light leakage between window casing and shade.

  • Duofold Mechanism comes with all brackets for a complete and easy installation.

  • High Tech Cleat, Roller Cord Lock Design: Ceramic locking cleat eliminates cord wear and ensures no-slip locking. Cord roller helps provide easy glide operation even on larger shades.

  • Pressure Set Equalizer: Keeps cords perfectly aligned. Acts as a cord stop on outside mount shades.

  • Elegant Head Rail Design: Stylish, low profile design provides minimal light gap and color coordinated to match your fabric.

Comment: We bought 10 white top-down/bottom up duofold shades several years ago from your company and absolutely love them.

Comment: I finally finished installing my shades yesterday after work. I love them!! Great products, which I will recommend to anyone who's interested. And easily installed, once I got to know how the clips work.

Comment: You have inspired us to proceed with ordering two more shades for our kitchen at this time. I will be taking the measurements and sending in the order in the next day or two.

Comment: Yes, I certainly am very satisfied with the shades I have purchased already. As well as the extra insulation they provide (which I roughly verified by measuring the temperatures outside the house, in the room, and between the shade and the window to be about R=2.8 as per your specifications! between the blind and the window!), I am delighted with the top-down bottom-up feature which is perfect for gaining the optimal balance of daylight /winter heat gain and privacy - which is very important in Japan as the houses are built very close to one another due to the extreme land cost!

Comment: "I received my shades today and have already installed them. Installation was relatively simple and I LOVE my new shades. Should I need to replace any more shades, I know now where I can get the best, affordable cellular shades. Thank you for your promptness and your quality shades. They fit beautifully!!

Comment: Spend $3k in shades and I get free equalizer boxes? Well honestly, I didn’t expect that. So thank you for the prompt, and unexpectedly pleasant service!

Jeff W. in WI               Rating: 4 star rating          Date:03/15/11
Comment: My shades are nice and working fine. I have them in a room that is not heated. They are doing their job.

Shelley R. in OK            Rating: 3 star rating         Date: 7/5/2010
Comment: I have two shades side by side and got top down/bottom up on both which means I have two cords right next to eachother and they frequently get tangled together.

Walter B. in ID               Rating: 3 star rating         Date: 2/2/2009
Comment: I ordered some cord loop shades and top down/bottom up in the same room and did not realize that the tops rail parts would look different.
