Additional Details & Resources
SnapLoc® Spline

The easy-to-fasten SnapLoc Spline ensures a proper-alignment across all shade bands, prevents the shadecloth from slipping off the roller tube and makes it easy to replace shadecloth if you would like to change style or performance


Managed Lift Force

Managed Lift Force provides a consistent experience for all sizes of shades, minimizing the effort required for operation. This allows multi-banded, large shades (up to 30 pounds), and hard to reach systems to be operated with a manual clutch.

SnapLoc Fascia

Use as an architectural element or to conceal the entire shade assembly, shadebands, or any alterations made to accommodate the chain

Offset Chain

The drive chain easily drops behind the fascia for a clean look and silent operation


A single drive bracket smoothly raises and lowers multiple shade bands in one movement making operation for a single user easy. 

Blackout Channel

Channels and fascia deliver precise light gap control for audio-visual and environmental-illumination needs

Room Darkening Details

Concealed pockets for single and double shade applications
