3" Sheer Window Shades

Our 3" Sheer Shades offer all of the benefits of the 2" Sheer Shades only more. Like the 2" Sheer Shades, you can open/close the fabric vanes however you like and that includes raising the shade with the vanes in the open position. Essentially, you have the control and viewing options of your typical venetian blind with the aesthetics of a sheer drapery. Only with 3" sheers your view out and the amount of natural light you can let in, is greater by an inch. These are perfect for medium to large-sized windows because if you had to cover a shade that is 96" in length, the 2" would require 24 fabric slats, whereas the 3" only requires 16 and that leads to a shade that won't bunch or bow when lowered. It allows for even far greater privacy and light control.

Product Specifications

Vane Closure
Shade Length

Sheer vanes are not designed to close tightly. The inherent nature of the fabric will cause a slight increase in the distance from the front sheer to back sheer as you move further down the shading. These vanes do not form a perfect seal against light leakage which is most visible toward the bottom of the shading. Vane overlap ensures that privacy is not compromised.

Vane closure is measured as the distance between the front and rear fabric sheers 6" up from the lowest point of the bottom rail, with the shading fully lowered and the vanes closed.

On light filtering fabrics, the maximum distance from the front sheer to the back sheer when closed is equal to or less than 5/8" for shadings under 60" and 7/8" for shadings longer than 60". On room darkening fabrics, the distance is 5/8" regardless of shading length.

Length Considerations

The vendor will fabricate your Window Shading to the exact length ordered, when the vanes are in the open (or view-through) position (diagram below).

  • When the vanes are rotated to the closed position, the shading will become slightly shorter.
  • When closed on an inside mount, the shading will be slightly shorter than ordered length.
  • Shade LengthIf preferred, your Sheer Shade can be ordered 3/8" longer than the measured length of the window opening. A slight puckering may occur when the vanes are in the open position. Rotating the vanes closed will cause the bottom rail to touch the window sill, before it begins to raise.

Operating a Cordless Sheer Shade

Cordless Shadings utilize a roller catch mechanism in the head rail which allows for the vanes to be adjusted into various positions.

Operating the Shading
Pull the handle that is attached to the bottom rail until the shading reaches the desired length, allow catch mechanism to engage and lock shade in desired position.

To Open or Close Vanes
Lower the shading all the way down and continue pulling down on the handle until the vanes open. The roller catch mechanism allows the vanes to be adjusted open, closed and to various positions in between. When adjusting the vane position, release the catch by tugging on the handle, roll up the shading several inches (this resets the catch mechanism), then pull back down to the desired position.

  • The Omni-View setting is not available with Cordless Shadings.

To Raise the Shading
Pull down on the handle to release the catch mechanism and then tug the handle to lock the shade in the desired position. When first learning to operate the shading, it may take a few tries to get the feel of the mechanism.
