Why Choose Mecho/5x?
Our latest innovation has patented overrunning clutch drive technology. The oil-impregnated clutch sprocket allows for quiet raising and lowering that is smooth and effortless. This super powered system is able to lift larger, heavier commercial grade solar shades while still providing the same consistent user experience as the original.
Multi-Band Commercial Window Shade Solutions
Just like Mecho/5, the Mecho/5x shade system ensures multi-band shades are always at a consistent height and that multiple chain pulls are eliminated. Mecho's adjustable shade coupler is included to speed the installation process and ensure precise, even and consistent shade heights and eliminate hembar misalignment. The updated version allows for multi-banded commercial shades, including 5 bands, up to 240 inches wide (depending on fabric weight) and single shades up to 180 inches wide, helping to eliminate light leaks.
Single or dual roller shade bracket options are available. With Mecho/5x, there's a greater angle to the chain pull, allowing for more versatile operation when obstructions may block a window. Our patented clutch raises and lowers the roller shades for an improved user experience, even smoother and quieter than before.
Durable Commercial Shades for Optimized Building Performance
The Mecho/5x shade system's durability makes it suitable for commercial applications, from workplace and education to hospitality and healthcare environments. Its ability to work with large industrial roller shades and multi-banding without motorization saves time and money, plus makes installation fast and easy. The reduced pull force makes it ideal in healthcare or senior living environments where users may have physical limitations with manual window shades. A Mecho 5/x shade system is integral in controlling solar gain and glare, helping to optimize the performance of buildings, and the experience of its occupants.
Cradle to Cradle Certified Shade System
When installed with EcoVeil, EcoSheer, or AcoustiVeil commercial shade cloth, the Mecho/5x window shade system is the only complete solution with Cradle to Cradle Bronze certification. This can also contribute points toward a building's LEED or WELL certification.
25-Year Limited Warranty
The Mecho/5x shade system is the only comprehensive hardware and commercial shade cloth system with a 25-year limited warranty, including 100% replacement and no depreciation over the life of the warranty.
When you want the best, work with the best. The best work with Mecho.
