Lutron Horizontal Sheers

Beautiful fabric meets industry-leading technology in these window treatments, where the soft elegance of a sheer is paired with the precise control of a blind.
Sheer layers combined with fabric vanes provide the perfect blend of filtered sunlight inside a space and view to the outside, while maximizing the control of both. Sheer layers also offer privacy, even when vanes are open. Fabric-wrapped fascia gives the option of matching the top treatment to the blind, or a custom cornice can be installed to finish the look.

The Kirbe™ vertical drapery system captivates with its unique and unexpected motion.

Venetian Blinds with
Intelligent Tilt Alignment

Venetian Blinds are an attractive and effective way to ensure privacy while still allowing daylight to filter into a space. Intelligent Tilt Alignment maintains uniform tilt and lift positions across multiple blinds and combines smooth quiet motion with independent tilt and lift.

Lutron tensioned shades reduce light gaps around fabric, and maximize the view when opened by eliminating cable guides that are typical in skylight shades. The frame may be surfaced mounted, inside mounted, or recessed.

QMotion is available in a wide variety of light filtering and blackout fabrics with the smallest uniform light gaps in the industry at only 7/16” on each side. QMotion also offers the benefits of near silent operation & an amazing overall size of up to 10 ft wide by 10 ft long and a 3 – 5 year battery life. If you choose a hardwired version is also available.

QMotion comes standard with its own RF Remote Control and is also available with a 7 channel remote control and a 15 channel Universal Interface for RS232 and 485 control for home automation integration.

QMotion Shades, which debuted at the NAHB International Builders’ Show in January 2011, have received rave reviews throughout the industry for their smooth, virtually silent movement and sleek, modern styling, including an Honorable Mention in the 2011 WCMA Product Awards category for Best New Technical Innovation.

Finally, a window covering product that is not only in demand because of its styling and engineering but because it meets all of the requirements for child safety and universal design.

The QMotion Honeycomb collection provides an elegant quiet solution to motorized shading. Unlike other motorized solutions, there are no exposed wires and battery wands. To access batteries, simply removed the snap on inside cover to replace the D cell alkaline batteries located inside our headrail. Because all of QMotion honeycomb shades are spring counterbalanced, the motors can move very easily and quietly. With this design they achieve a two to three times longer battery life than other motorized honeycomb shades.

The Honeycomb collection has the same award winning features as the groundbreaking roller shade products. A slight tug on the bottom of the shade will energize the motor and the shade will move upward. Similarly, by pulling the shade downward the shade can be adjusted to close without using the remote control. Qadvanced Automated Honeycomb shades are available in a wide range of colors and fully compatible with the controls for Qadvanced Roller Shades.

For a manual solution QMotion cordless honeycomb shades are designed with patented counterbalance springs which results in industry leading ease of operation–even large shades are easily moved to open and close. Qfree features clutch free manual shades that compliment QMotion exclusive fabric designs. Each Qfree shade is designed with the same quality engineering that you’d expect to find in all QMotion Advanced Shading Systems products. They can also be easily upgraded to a Qadvanced shade.
