POINTS OF AEROLXJX
Aerolux Shade have many
points of superiority over
other Porch Shades, the most
important improvement is tho
l'ATKXT N O-W II J V A T
TACHAIKXT. It is attached
to and made a part of the
shade itself. it is adjustable,
ami without placing strain on
shade holds it taut and pre
vents flapping and whipping
in the wind, which is injiiiio.is
to the shade and unpleasant to
the occupant of the porch.
With theso attachments it is
nut necessary to raise the
shades at night or when leav
ing the porch. This is a very
great impro eiuent in Porch
Shades, and found UXLY on
these attachments may be rolled up with the. Shade entirely out of sight.
iWhon the Shade Is not in use,
ARUOLCX Porch Shades are made of AEIiOLl'X Splint-Fabric, which consists of Liuwood splints, woven with
the finest seine twine. Tlie warp cords are in perfect alignment, not ziag as in some shades, and tho splints
and spaces between them are of uniform width. As a result there are no irregularities in the fabric, eiflier i. t,.
color or outline to detract fioui the appearance and. hold the involuntary attention of those who are inclined to be
elects, as m flimsy ISamboo screens and mottled colored spiint shades woven
different from the
witll colds of colors
plints, or in which splints and spaces between are of varying width.
AEROLUX Splits are smoothed by a special process which with the soft colors used brings out the grain of the
wood beautifully. All cords and twine are colored (except in tirade, il) to match the splints, adding greatly to
the appearance of the shade.
