      Shading with Tension, at Ease

      Engineered for peace of mind, our Skylight Tension Shades deliver flat, taut shading panels in a wide range of horizontal shading applications. Consult with us to design a system for skylights, bottom-up applications, or even exterior conditions.

      The key feature of our skylight tension shades is the single-motor mechanism, which reduces system complexity and improves overall reliability.

      Product Details

      Key Features

       

      • Innovative tensioning system adjusts automatically to keep shades taut across longer spans
      • Exclusive single motor drives and motor coupling tension systems reduce installation costs, controllers and wiring
      • Coupling of two tension systems through a single motor reduces cost
      • Available dual-shade systems make it possible to create solutions that combine both translucent and blackout shades

      System Description

       

      • Specifically designed for Skylights and custom glazing applications
      • The same high powered motors and flexible control options available on our regular motorized shades are standard on all specialty systems
      • Similar to a standard Motorized shaded system in appearance, the Skylight Tension System can be mounted in conjunction with standard shade installations in vertical windows
      • All hardware is contained within the channel extrusions leaving no exposed components and providing a clean appearance
      • Our unique tension system is designed to operate with only one motor. There is no requirement for a second motor which “draws” the shade across, reducing wiring and control costs
      • Automatic tensioning of the fabric expansion and contraction rates

      Design Options

       

      • Virtually unlimited in shape and size of system. We are able to produce trapezoidal, triangular, horizontal, inclined, and sloped shades as easily as any standard system
      • Our standard variety of hembars are available, providing a similar appearance to motorized shades
      • Numerous control options available

      NOTE: Color and fabric images are for illustration only.
      For accurate specification, please request product samples.
