The American Duo® Day-Night Shades are an advanced window shades innovation designed for solar protection and 100% light-blocking capabilities in an attractive, compact, and user-friendly package.

Easy to operate and easy to clean, this Roller Shade eliminates the problems normally associated with ordinary day-night pleated shades. MCD's window shades take the place of blackout curtains, power visors, expensive cellular, Vienna and silhouette shades, Venetian blinds and other dated shades.

The American Duo® window shade system is comprised of two Roller Shades
  • Our exclusive MCD Solar screen material. The Day Shade utilizes MCD's exclusive Clearview II™ Sun Screen, filtering the light for outward visibility, daytime privacy, and heat reduction.
  • 100% blackout night shade. This shade is 100% light blocking and serves as the interior barrier, it is available in a variety of price levels, colors, and patterns in both vinyl and cloth.

The American Duo® Day-Night Roller Shade is available with a choice of manual, switch electric, remote electric models, or a combination thereof, such as a manual solar day shade combined with an electric, remote-controlled light blocking Night Shade.

The manual shade uses a spring roller which allows the shade to be lowered to any position and retracted with a simple touch-n-release movement. The MCD unique GlideRise IV™ technology controls ascent speed while MCD AutoStop™ will stop the shade at a user-set height every time it’s raised.

The electric powered version of the MCD Duo® Day/Night Shades for living areas utilizes MCD quiet 12V DC tubular remote control motors which fit inside the roller tubes. Upper and lower shade limits are set by utilizing MCD exclusive built-in electronic set limit capability providing a perfect shade fit for each window. Remotely control each shade individually and in groups, such as all day or all night.
