ElectroPocket Savings Estimator

Mecho's ElectropocketTM is powering the future of motorized shade controls. ElectroPocket is easier, faster, and more economical to install than a standard pocket, and is the only UL certified shade pocket on the market. 

Not ready for motorized shades? ElectroPocket is pre-wired so it can be motorized at a later date. This innovative system makes it ideal for retro-fit, renovation, or tenant fit out project.
