Operating Systems Customized for Your Home: UltraGlide VS Literise

The days are long. The sun can be intense. You have to be able to use your window treatments with effortless operation so you receive the privacy and light control you need, while still providing the opportunity to enjoy the breathtaking landscape. The innovation of Hunter Douglas offers you options for customization of the operating systems to control your window treatments. Let’s take a look at UltraGlide VS LiteRise…

Choosing Your Lift System

Effortless operation, combined with child-safe features, allows you to relax and enjoy your view that much more.  Both the LiteRise and the UltraGlide Lifting Systems have many characteristics that can offer you a customized experience. The best part is that you can mix and match the operating systems throughout your home, tailored to the function and lifestyle preferences with your specific window treatments.

The LiteRise® Cordless Lift System

With the touch of a finger to the bottom rail, your window treatments rise and lower effortlessly. Cords are not present, enhancing child and pet safety. Push the bottom rail up to raise your window treatments quickly and easily, while pulling down on that bottom rail to release your window treatment, lowering it to the desired position. The LiteRise Cordless Lift System functions wonderfully for those window treatments in high traffic areas.

UltraGlide Lifting System

With a single, retractable cord that stays a consistent length for child and pet safety, the UltraGlide system allows you to raise and lower your window treatments with ease. Movement occurs by a few short pumps of the cord, providing you with versatility to set the window treatment in the perfect position for light control and privacy options. The UltraGlide Lifting System functions well in high traffic areas. The retractable cord is specifically valuable for extended control when there are obstacles in front of the windows.

Mixing Lifting Systems

Does it really need to be UltraGlide VS LiteRise? Or could you choose the system based on the function of the space? Of course!

The beauty of Hunter Douglas products is the complementary design features that bring more than one window treatment or lifting system together in a shared space. The option to use more than one lifting system, while preserving that coordinated look, gives you choices for customization of your window treatments. The function should match your lifestyle and space. Let’s take a look at some possible scenarios…

Your Kitchen: Many of the windows will do well with the cordless LiteRise system. But, the window over your sink? Using a cord alongside the shade might be easier to adjust without hassle.

Your Master Suite: The LiteRise System allows you to easily change the privacy and light control within your bedroom, but letting light filter into your master bath is not as convenient, since the window is set in a tricky location. By equipping the master bath shade with UltraGlide, you can easily use the cord to click the shade into position.

Your Living Room: Furniture placement is often a top consideration here, with easily accessible windows getting the cordless system, while the window behind the couch needs the short, retractable cord of UltraGlide.

The beauty of mixing these two systems is the coordination of fabrics, easily done with the fabric-covered valances available to make the design complete. It doesn’t have to be UltraGlide VS LiteRise…it can be both!
