HUNTER DOUGLAS
EPIC™ OPERATING SYSTEM
FOR HORIZONTAL BLINDS

Experience the Distinction of Custom-Engineering

  Hunter Douglas EPIC operating system for horizontal blinds.

Engineered Precision, Innovative Control.

Standard Cordlock system on all Hunter Douglas wood, alternative wood and aluminum blinds (2" slat sizes and wider).

Custom-designed to work with Hunter Douglas products and specifications. No off-the-shelf, generic components like other brands.

Thoroughly benchmarked and tested to ensure the industry’s highest performance standards.

Every component detail chosen for a reason; every material for a purpose. This creates the most efficient operation and the smoothest tilt and lift available.

More robust Cord Tilter, Tilt Drive Unit and Cordlock designs ensure years of trouble-free use.

Improved end cap treatment and installation brackets provide better consistency and installation flexibility.

Backed by 60 years of horizontal blind design experience and the Hunter Douglas Lifetime Guarantee.
