Temperature is Important in Productivity

Temperature directly affects productivity. According to a Cornell University study, employee productivity is at its highest when office temperature falls between 70 and 73 degrees.

With those statistics, finding a window treatment that offers versatility when it comes to temperature control is paramount.

One option would be Honeycomb Cellular Shades.  Honeycomb Shades are the original cellular shades, specifically engineered to provide beauty and energy efficiency at the window in both cold and warm climates.

Cellular Shades or Honeycomb Shades are one of the most versatile window treatments available today.
