Now available…QMotion Battery Operated Drapery Hardware!!!

QMotion has developed the industry’s first – and only – track-less motorized drapery rod.  This wireless drapery rod is free of noise, wires & external motors.  The patent pending battery operated motors are tucked away inside the 1.5″ & 2″ rods but remain easily accessible for the infrequent times when the batteries may need to be changed.  In addition the rod is equipped with an exclusive manual override feature.  The drapery rods come in six finishes with optional finials that can be mixed and matched to create a personalized drapery rod system that adds a distinctive look to any home or office.

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.
While Lutron Sheer Horizontals offers a more limited color pallette, CMI offers motorization of similar products with the same Lutron Technology.

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.
