Power Options

  • Battery / Wire-Free powered shades are a perfect solution in areas where electrical wiring is not possible such as skylights and french doors. Batteries last approximately 1-1/2 to 2 years and are replaceable.
  • Plug-In powered shades plug into standard wall outlet. Wires can be exposed, concealed behind a valance or an electrician can install an outlet near the top of the shade.
  • In-wall powered shades conceal all wires within the walls.

Control Options

  • Remote Controls
  • Wall Switch
  • Both Remote Controls and Wall Switches allow for multiple channels so a control can operate a single shade or a group of shades
  • Integration in a Home Automation system is also available. Call or stop by our showroom for more information.
