Roller Shade Material
Screens and Sheers are elegant sheer fabric weaves which reduce glare while maintaining the view out your window. Some screen fabrics have an opacity percentage which indicates the amount of UV light which can come through the fabric. The lower the percentage, the less UV light will come thought the fabric.
Solids are plain fabrics with very subtle textures, available in many colors and opacity levels.
Patterns and Textures fabrics range from bold fashion prints to jacquard woven and natural textures.
Roller Shade Operation
Continuous Cord Loop
Roller Shades can be made with a Continuous Cord Loop operating system with a color coordinated tension pulley that neatly affixes to the wall or window casing and allows for smooth, easy operation of your shades. This feature also makes the shade safer for children and pets.
Continuous Cord Loop System with Deluxe and Deluxe Oversized Valance
Roller Shades have a matching fabric covered valance that conceals the shade when raised for a perfectly unobstructed view. The controls may be ordered in either black or white. Available in standard and oversized to accommodate larger shades, this clever finishing touch gives windows a refined, sophisticated look.
Cordless Roller Shades feature a mechanism which allows the shade to be lifted and lowered with a simple tug on the bottom rail. This classic design has been updated for child safety and ease of use.
Motorized With Remote Control
Roller Shades can be ordered with motorized headrail which lifts and lowers the shades with a single or five channel portable remote control or wall unit. This feature is ideal for operating shades on hard to reach windows and for operating several shades at once with the touch of a button. Roller Shades can even be programmed to automatically open and close at specific times of the day and night. Elimination of lift cords is also safer for children and pets.
