Fabric Construction

Different styles of honeycomb cell construction and fabric opacity can affect the energy performance of the fabric.  Larger and/or more cells and blockout fabrics generally provide a greater level of insulation.

Arena Honeycomb Shade fabrics come in a variety of cell constructions:

  • 10mm Single Cell - for a classic and sophisticated style

  • 20mm Single Cell - for a bold and contemporary statement, with excellent energy efficiency

  • Double Cell - features an innovative, side-by-side cellular construction that provides enhanced thermal insulation, keeping out summer heat and winter cold
