Cordless Deco Bar
This cord-free system raises and lowers shades with one tug on the bottom rail. Choose from white or black hardware and regular or reverse roll. Select a decorative pull to make operation easier and keep your shades cleaner. All cordless shades include a clear plastic grip as an optional attachment. Photo shows exposed regular roll. Cordless also available with Designer Cassette, see below.
A motorized lift system raises and lowers one shade or a group of shades with the push of a button. Radio-frequency motorization is excellent for any space with large windows, multiple windows, or for the simple convenience and child-safe method of operating shades. Available with: Standard Roller, Designer Cassette options and 3″ Fascia.
Hand held 5 channel remote allows for individual programming of 5 shades (or groups of shades) plus an ‘all’ channel. Also available: plug in transformer for Simplicity Motor to take the place of the batteries if you don’t want to change them. This is also recommended for shades that are very high up and hard to reach.
Simplicity motors are battery operated and come with a re-loadable 12V battery wand. Refill with 8 alkaline AA batteries. If the motor runs slowly, that’s usually a sign you need to change out the batteries. If you allow the batteries to go completely dead and the motors stop working, they will lose their programming and will need to be reprogrammed. To avoid this, it is important to monitor.
Simplicity Power Touch motors are an economical way to motorize. They are controlled by a switch on a wand that is attached to the shade itself rather than a hand held remote. We also offer Somfy motors if you are looking for wall mounted remotes, timers, etc.
