Silhouette shades have been one of Hunter Douglas most innovative and leading product for many years.
 Now available in 4"  veins and  with A DEUX™ SHADINGS feature, Silhouette's functionality is even more enhanced. Motorization is simply a required feature to be added.

The new PowerView™ motorization technology from Hunter Douglas offer a brand new wey to control Motorized Silhouette shades. The shade receives commands from a remote control and sends information back to the remote of its precise position. This new functionality enables controlling multiple shades to be exactly aligned.

A pebbled designed remote control is available in an amazing assortment of colors, with features such as group control and tilting capabilities to allow better control of daylight.

The design phase begins normally with a meeting in the apartment. First we choose fabrics and style. Based on that we match the appropriate motorization system (Low Voltage, Hardwired or Battery Operated)
Controlling the shades can be done via the PowerView remote, a wall switch, iPhone app or a 3rd party system.

The new updated PowerView motor is hidden inside the head rail and offer precise tilting and raise/lower capabilities.

Our in-house electrician will wire each room based on the system selected above. Battery operated shade require no wiring while DC and AC Hardwired shades use transformers and electrical boxes respectively. During wiring phase we hide all the wires leading to the transformer. Typically transformers are plugged in in outlets near the floor and wires will run inside the wall to the shade. DC and AC Hardwired systems with multiple shades sometimes use "home run wiring" to a central location in the house. The new PowerView remote and wall mount switch is wireless and does not require any wiring.

Installation of Silhouette shade weather electric or manual would be the same. Our professional installers are capable of installing these shades to the ceiling weather its concrete or not or to the wall above the window. Side mount brackets are not available for Silouette shades. Once shades are installed we test them and move to the next step which is programming.

Hunter Dougals Silhouette® PowerView™ Motoriztaion


Silhouette in its unique design by Hunter Douglas does not exist anywhere in the market. With its exquisite high end design, motorization is just a naturally added feature. Silhouette is available in 2", 3" and 4" veins and a new A DEUX™ SHADING feature allows adding a blackout shade at the back of Silhouette for use in bedrooms.

Silhouette shades can be powered via battery operated motors, DC powered motors (most common) and hardwired High Voltage motors. Battery operated motors are the standard but they can be replaced with a DC power supply. A hardwired high voltage motors are available for big residential applications or when multiple shades are required.

Hunter Douglas has upgraded all their motors to a new PowerView™ motor line the offers advanced technology to assign and control an unlimited number of shades with a single group on the new PowerView™ remote.

In addition to the remote controlling the shade the new motors inside the head rail will send information back to the remote including precise position. This is used to align multiple shades and control them to be precisely in the same position.

This feature is specially important with Silhouette that not only moves up and down but also tilts. When installing multiple Silhouette shades adjacent to each other it is required that they move and tilt as one unit.

With an additional PowerView™ Hub, Silhouette Shades can be controlled via an iPhone or iPad with a free downloadable app.

A PowerView™ remote control will control not only Silhouette® but also Duette®, Luminette® and any other Hunter Douglas product.
