Our roller shades are designed to provide you with the utmost comfort and convenience while helping you save on energy costs. With our smart shades, you can easily control the amount of sunlight entering your home or office, ensuring that you stay comfortable while blocking harmful UV rays.

Since 1969, we have provided smart shading and window coverings that offer the perfect solution for your home or business. In 2020, Mecho stepped up to lead the way to a safe and circular future by joining the Cradle to Cradle Certified® Version 4 Pilot Program. Today, Mecho’s ElectroShade iQ2-AC & DC motors are the first-ever Motorized Shade System C2C Certified® at the Bronze level!

As the world’s most advanced standard for safe and responsible materials and products, the Cradle to Cradle Certified Product Standard Version 4 is the key to transforming the traditional linear economic model of production and consumption into a circular economy driven by products that can be reused, replaced, and recycled. The Cradle to Cradle Products Innovation Institute updated Version 4.0 of the Cradle to Cradle Certified Product Standard. Through a multi-stakeholder process that was informed by varied technical subject matter specialists, major manufacturers, independent assessors, and market representatives from across the supply chain who serves on the Standards Steering Committee and Stakeholder Advisory.

At the touch of a button, users can raise, lower, and tilt all shades in a group to the precise position for maximum light control, occupant comfort, and energy efficiency. And because the system is motorized, it eliminates the need for cords and chains, making it safe and accessible for all users. Our window shades also offer a modern look to any room.

When it comes to energy usage, our low voltage motor is one of the most economic options on the market. In fact, according to a study by the U.S. Department of Energy’s Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory, roller shades can save up to 30% in energy costs when compared to traditional window treatments. Our shade systems are controlled with a low-voltage motor and maintain a rechargeable battery for complete efficiency. With our seamless integration into a building management system, we can assist in controlling light, heat, and energy costs.
