Blackout Shades

Valances cover the shade roll and bracketry, and help block light spillage at the top of the shade. A shade installation with valances is an upgrade in sophistication and finish. Atrium Shade has a full line of valance options to fit your personal taste and functional needs. (Description of gallery photos below. Numbered left to right and top to bottom.)

1., 2., & 3. Inside mount valance: a soft, fabric valance for inside jamb mount. Standard drop is 4" but can be custom sized. Usually matches the shade fabric but can be any stock fabric or COM:(customer's own material)

4. Outside mount valance: a board-mount, soft valance with returns (end panels) for wall or door mount shades. Standard size is 3 ½" depth x 4 ½" drop but can be custom- sized. Fabric selection as above.

5. Inside/Outside valance: Constructed like the outside mount valance and sized to fit inside a window jamb but projecting out enough to allow for mounting a shade. Used where a window jamb is not deep enough to accommodate a shade or where two shades are desired in the same window.

6. Fascia panel: enameled aluminum fascia that covers the shade roll on the front and underside surface for a very clean appearance. Available in white, vanilla, bronze, black and clear anodized with drops of 3", 3 ½" and 4".

7. Insert valance: This valance has clear runners and top and bottom to accept a strip of shade fabric. This results in a very clean, coordinated appearance. The drop is 3 ½" and it is available in both an inside and outside mount version.
