The front and the back sheer and the horizontal vanes form a pocket. The wider the shades, longer the pockets become, so it would be much difficult to remove insects that have gone inside the sheers and also the dust that might settle within the pockets.
4. The horizontal sheer shades are made of floating light filtering vanes in between two soft, smooth, sheer materials under a durable and quality aluminum headrail and bottom rail.
