Compact, Versatile Design
UrbanShade systems are engineered to provide flexible design configurations needed to allow natural daylight into a building and preserve outside views while blocking unwanted solar heat gain and glare. UrbanShade daylight control systems grow with your business and are an easy entry into commercial shade systems for any industry, including corporate, education, healthcare, and hospitality.
Available in a single or double shade configuration with either manual or motorized lift options. UrbanShade incorporates any of Mecho's hundreds of proprietary solar shade cloths to provide an aesthetically pleasing, complete solar control solution.
Manual window shades offer a smooth and reliable lift experience with a simple, continuous bead chain, making our commercial window shades easy to raise and lower.
Motorized shade systems feature performance-proven shade motors and a variety of control options perfect for precision control of occupant comfort and building performance.
The system is easily re-configured in the field as a project's needs and budget changes. UrbanShade can be converted from a manual system to a motorized system by merely removing the face of the clutch and replacing the manual control head with a motorized control head. The best part: re-configuring does not require a new fabric band.
For easy, fast, and inexpensive installation, UrbanShade features innovative universal mounting brackets allowing shades to be mounted to the wall, window jamb, or ceiling. Depending on design requirements, UrbanShade features interchangeable left- and right drive brackets. The prefabricated cassette option makes installation easy by leveling and attaching to the window.
Cradle to Cradle Certified Shade System
When installed with EcoVeil, EcoVeil Sheer, or AcoustiVeil commercial shade cloth, the UrbanShade window shade system is a complete solution with Cradle to Cradle Bronze certification. This can also contribute points toward a building's LEED or WELL certification.
UrbanShade manual and motorized solar control systems are engineered to provide years of worry-free operation and are covered by a 10-year warranty on hardware and a 5-year warranty on motors, batteries, and controls. This ensures 100% replacement with no depreciation over the life of the warranty.
