Corded Pleated Shade Operation
Corded Lock Pleated Shade
Cord Lock
This standard operating system utilizes a color-coordinated, low-profile headrail system. It lifts and lowers the Pleated Shade to any position using an easy to use cord lock system.
Top Down Bottom Up Pleated Shade
Top Down Bottom Up
Versatility makes this operating system popular because it allows the Pleated Shade to be lifted from the bottom and lowered from the top. Our Top Down/Bottom Up Operating System is an excellent choice for bedrooms and bathrooms because light can be allowed in at the top of the window without compromising privacy. These shades will have controls on both sides. You can choose which side you want the lift cord control to be on when ordering.
Corded Pleated Shade
Top Down
This operating system allows the Pleated Shade to be lowered from the top rather than lifted from the bottom. It’s an excellent choice for bedrooms and bathrooms where greater privacy is a concern because light can be allowed in at the top of the window rather than the bottom of the window.
Pleated Shade 3 Day Blinds
DuoShade®
This innovative design combines two fabrics with different opacity levels in one shade. It uses the sheer shade on top to gently diffuse light during the day and the more opaque shade on the bottom for complete privacy at night.
Brown Cellular Shades
2-on-1 Headrail
For windows with multiple openings that operate independently, our popular 2-on-1 Headrail Operating System is a smart choice. Two shades are connected by one continuous headrail and valance, offering fully independent operation.
Cordless Pleated Shades Operation
Motorized Shade
Motorized
For truly convenient and effortless operation of your Pleated Shades, our Motorized Operating System is the answer. Pleated Shades can be ordered with a motorized headrail that lifts and lowers the shades with a remote control or wall unit. This feature is ideal for operating shades which may be located in hard to reach windows and for operating several shades at once with the touch of a button. For the ultimate in advanced automation, Pleated Shades can even be programmed to automatically open and close at specific times of the day and night. This system eliminates lift cords, making the shade safer for children and pets. Please note: Motorized headrails are always white with an insert that is color coordinated with the chosen Pleated Shade fabric.
Continuous Cord Loop Pleated Shade Operation
Cord loop
Continuous Cord Lopp
The Continuous Cord Loop Lifting System is a great choice for larger windows and homes with children and pets. A unique tension pulley that attaches to the wall or window casing allows smooth, simple operation of your Pleated Shades. In addition, custom control lengths are available as a special order.  Please note: The Continuous Cord Loop headrails are always white with an insert that is color coordinated with the chosen Pleated Shade fabric.
