When combined with battery and solar power options, radio controlled shades truly are wire free. There are a multitude of radio control options including wireless wall switches, hand held remote controls, sun sensors and timers. Radio controlled shades are great in retrofit and remodel projects. Radio shades can be operated from virtually anywhere without direct line of sight. Similar to how a garage door opener operates, radio signals travel through walls and make it possible to control multiple coverings alone or as a group.
Hand-held remotes provide convenient control and are most popular in residential settings. Some models allow for control of remote sensors, while others are equipped with built-in timers. Whether the remote is for the living room, conference room or patio, remotes are a simple and stylish option for shade operation.
Wall switches are ideal in most commercial settings where a hand-held remote may get lost. Simply install a wall switch in any interior wall and or convert the keypad into a table-top remote with a special accessory. Each wall switch is equipped with an up, down and “stop” button, allowing you to control motorized shades effortlessly.
Roll-A-Shade® offers sun, wind, rain and temperature sensors. Sensors allow for automation of radio controlled motorized systems. Roller shades that are operated by sensors will adjust automatically to the changing elements of the outdoors.
Roll-A-Shade’s Intelligent Shade Network utilizes intelligent motor technology to provide a comprehensive sun control solution for every environment. The intelligent motor design features an on board microprocessor and a digital encoder, which allows a wide range of features to be easily programmed.
The ISN is software configured for the management of day lighting and glare control to improve comfort and reduce HVAC energy demands. Each component is assigned a unique address which allows specific tasks to be configured over the network. Configuration and reconfiguration is easy as functional assignments are made without the need to access the end product or physically rewire hardware. Whether designing for 10 motors or 1000 motors you no longer carry the cost impact of providing a centralized building controller and remotely located hardware modules. Partnering is easy since the ISN plays nicely with others. With standardization of the bus line approach it easily integrates with lighting, HVAC and Energy Management Systems. With automated shade scheduling, shades are altered based on the current environment and pro-actively adjust to conditions. Shades automatically adjust to maintain the maximum amount of natural light while continuing to block the harsh direct sunlight and heat.

In new construction or renovations, 4-Wire Motor Systems provide simple and reliable control for installations that do not require complex management solutions. A 4-Wire Motor System links the control device to the motor using electrical wires carrying power and limiting the switch to the source of control. The common motor options available for these systems are durable and dependable and feature a wide variety of torques and speeds which are a beneficial resource for interior or exterior motorized shading applications.
When choosing basic controlled systems, power supply and wiring should be planned prior to construction and include the possibilities of future renovations. Manual controls must be located near windows and in strategic areas which often requires a detailed system design process before development could take place. 4-Wire Motor Systems are a great solution for cost-conscious new construction projects that must meet specific wiring requirements.
Every manual shade is manufactured with a premium, smooth operating clutch. Our premiere clutch system is constructed of patented long-lasting nylon core technology. Very simple to operate, simply pull down on the control chain to either lower or raise the shade to desired height.
Spring Assist Clutch
This high capacity spring assisted clutch is a perfect solution for large, heavy shades. This inventive clutch has a spring that is pre-rotated to a designated tension to reduce pull force required to lift heavy shades. The Spring Assist Clutch provides smooth and quiet operation and is a cost effective alternative to motorization. The clutch reduces the pull force on heavy shades to approximately 6 lbs (2.7 kg) even on shades weighting up to 30 lbs (24 kg).
This chain anchor (tension device) is compliant with Canadian Safety Standard CAN/CSA-Z600-14 which requires that the tension device shall be designed so when not properly installed will, at least partially, prevent the lift system from moving the window covering through lowering and raising.
This chain anchor secures the bead chain making the operation smooth while providing an attractive appearance. This anchor requires 2 mounting screws eliminating anchor swivel and promoting strength.
The sealed pocket hem bar is heat welded at the top and the sides to provide a refined unobtrusive appearance.
Roll-A-Shade’s proprietary bottom rail is durable, sleek and attractive. It is available in all standard colours to match the fascia and installation brackets. The plastic end caps are available in black and white.
