frequently asked questions

How do zebra shades work?

You can operate zebra shades using a manual continuous chain that is safely secured to the wall. In order to raise the shades, you’ll need to pull the chain closer to you downward. As an alternative, you may pull the chain that is closer to the window downward. This is also available in a motorized version with a remote control or voice control.

What is the difference between dim-out and light filtering zebra shades?

The difference between dim-out and light filtering zebra shades is the fabric. As their name suggests, dim out zebra shades fabric block out light when they are alternated to the closed position and allow light in when open. Conversely, light filtering zebra shades will let light through regardless of whether they are in the open or closed position.

Furthermore, dim-out zebra shades have a thicker fabric that blocks out light. In contrast, light filtering zebra shades are made with fabric that allows light through the fabric. Also, the brighter the material, the more likely it will glow.

Are zebra shades in style?

This probably depends on who you ask. If you ask an interior designer, the answer may be no. On the other hand, if you ask your guests, the answer is most likely yes.

Also, it depends on the space you wish to cover. Zebra shades attract attention and may look busy. Hence, if you have a lot of windows to cover in a room, we suggest you choose another type of shade. This is because zebra shades may look busy with huge windows.

When the light filtering version and zebra shades are in the closed position, then it’s not as busy as it looks. However, when they are in the stripe position, and you have big windows with only a few openings, then we recommend something different. With this, you can achieve a softer look.

What are zebra blinds?

Zebra blinds originated in the mid-’80s but are relatively new to North America. Invented in South Korea, Zebra shades/blinds are made with a dual-layered fabric that is composed of alternating sheer mesh and light filtering or room darkening strips of material. This helps give you the capability to control both the lighting, view and privacy with ease. Additionally, zebra blinds feature a modern, distinctive style and are available in both light-filtering and dim out (room darkening) versions.

What are zebra shades called?

Zebra shades are sometimes referred to as dual shades, illusion shades, mirage shades, transitional shades, or banded shades. Other names include double roller shades, dual-layered shades, or sheer shades. Of all these names, the most commonly used name is zebra shades or zebra blinds.

Are zebra shades expensive?

It depends on what you compare it to, as well as the material it is made of. A zebra shade can be more expensive than a roller shade with a single fabric since less material is needed. Conversely, some fabrics are more costly than others. Thus, it mainly depends on the material. If you send us the dimensions – width x length – of your window, we will be able to send you a few quotes without the need to come over.

Are zebra shades popular?

Yes, zebra shades are very popular for the home or living spaces, but not for commercial spaces. In fact, zebra shades are probably the most ordered window shades currently. Although, they may not be suitable for all homeowners. Some people hate it, while others absolutely love it.

Which zebra shades are the best?

With so many manufacturers, it’s hard to know for sure. Regardless, the material and manufacturer definitely play a huge role. Making use of a new fabric that just came out can lead to problems, but it’s pretty rare.

New materials are great, but it takes time till we find out if fabric is problematic with fraying or other issues. Hence, it’s always best to stay with the more commonly used materials which have been around for a while. We love using Neolux zebra fabrics and with a 5-year warranty on materials.

Can zebra shades be blackout?

Zebra shades don’t provide the level of darkness a blackout fabric would provide. Therefore, these shades are referred to as dim out or room darkening shades and no blackouts.

Do zebra blinds block out light?

With dim out or room darkening zebra shades, the material will block out light. Conversely, with a light filtering version, natural light will still enter your living space. With light filtering, the brighter the material, the more it will glow and will let light through the blinds.

Can zebra shades be cordless?

No, zebra shades can’t be cordless. The only way to make a cordless zebra shade is to motorize it.

What do zebra blinds look like?

From the inside of the house and outside, you won’t be able to miss this type of window treatment. Zebra blinds are very pretty on the outside when set on the stripe. However, they look like regular shade when fully closed.

What are zebra blinds made of?

Zebra blinds are made of aluminum, plastic, and dual Zebra fabrics. The back fabric doesn’t move up and down. Only the fabric on the front is able to move. In order to hide the roll, all zebra shades come with a 3” or 4” cassette already included. This may include:

  • Rounded aluminum cassette with a fabric insert in 5 colors, or
  • Square aluminum cassette made with five colors – white, bronze, silver, ivory, and black.

Furthermore, there’s a bottom rail with the same color as the cassette. The fabric travels through the aluminum bottom rail, and it’s basically acts as the weight to keep the shade straight. Also, a manual clutch or a motor can be on either side – left or right.

Are zebra blinds energy efficient?

Yes, just like any other shade, zebra blinds are energy-efficient. Nonetheless, it is important to remember not to use dark fabrics if you’re trying to minimize the heat. If you’re facing south or west, choose only bright-colored fabrics.

Are zebra shades good for showers?

We have special zebra fabrics that are suitable for water and humidity. These shades are made of 30% PES (Polyethersulfone) and 70% PVC. Thus, allowing you to easily clean or wipe off this material if required.

How wide can zebra blinds be?

Most of the zebra shades fabrics are 110″ wide. The widest possible you can make the shades in one piece is 111″ wide. Though, it’s possible to do one valence (cassette) and to put 2 or 3 shades inside the single cassette. This is what we usually do if the window is wider than 111″ and zebra shades are needed.

How to clean zebra blinds?

To clean your zebra blinds, it is best to read instructions from the manufacturer on the fabric you chose. However, if you are not sure of the type of fabric, try to avoid using any water directly on the fabric, if that doesn’t work, then you can try cleaning with the following:

  • A magic eraser or the white eraser of a pencil.
  • A cup of water with a splash of hand soap

Using a new toothbrush, gently clean the fabric. Don’t ever use chemicals.

How to fix zebra blinds?

The most common issue I see with manual versions of zebra shades is that, unlike regular shades, they use a slow-moving clutch. Hence, there are no breaks on the chain to stop it from going further down beyond the point it was designed to reach. People with no experience with these shades may not notice that the shade has reached the floor. If you continue to lower the shade, you will create a situation where there is a major gap between the front and back fabrics. They may no longer touch each other.

To fix this problem, visually lower the shade till it starts going upwards. If you notice another issue, it may be due to an error during installation or because the blinds are not leveled. Give us a call, and we will try and help.
