Optional Liners Available

Fabric liners available for added light control and privacy.

Efficient Heat Control

Reduces heat gain from direct sunlight. Provides protection from UV rays.

Using the Optional Control Single Channel remote, a good number of shades can be “virtually” controlled within a distance of 65 feet, from anywhere in the house, making it easy to control shades installed in hard to reach elevations. The remote comes with buttons along with a “my” button to stop the shades at the desired level.

Apart from its obvious utilitarian advantages, these shades rank high in terms of safety, as the virtual cord system eliminates the need for cords, apt for houses with children and pets as it reduces the risk of entanglement and strangulation. The EvenPleat shades have a pleat size of an inch and come with a back ladder support system that not only ensures that the pleats are evenly spaced irrespective of the position they’re in, but also prevents sagging of the pleats for the lifetime of the shades.

The Virtual Cord can be enabled with light sensors that are designed to automatically raise and lower the shades according to the intensity of the light outside. On a hot, sunny day, the shades will automatically lower to let in less light. Apart from maintaining a comfortable indoor atmosphere, these shades take a load of your HVAC system, reducing your power bill considerably.

These shades can automatically lower and raise themselves as per a pre-set schedule aiding privacy and security when the house is left vacant. Better still, the Thru Shaft Motor is designed to allow smooth and quite operation of the shades with a consistent speed, irrespective of how many or how heavy or tall (as large as 144” x 144”) they are. This motor system comes incorporated with a unique communication protocol called iO, designed especially for convenient and reliable operation and features an integrated antenna and a push button concealed as an end cap that can be used for programming, as well as reprogramming, and the operation in the absence of the remote. This way, the whole head rail need not be opened when the settings need to be changed; also, it has an LED feedback that is colour coordinated with the head rail to indicate the operation. This system also comes with the End Limit Safety Programming feature that records, limits, and pre-sets positions, ensuring that the shades don’t slip in spite of age, electrostatic discharge or power failure.


This energy efficient Thru Shaft Motor is a low-voltage motor that requires no expensive electrical hard wiring. The motor can be powered by either an integrated battery case that uses AA or lithium batteries (which has to be attached to the extra bracket included in the head rail before installation), or a plug-in transformer which includes a 6’ power cord and an 8’ extension cable. The shades are easy to install as inside and outside mounts, and work well for window spaces with less depth.

The virtual cord option is not available in the TopDown or the BottomUp option, speciality shapes and window treatments that have multiple shades on one head rail.

The limited warranty for Motorization components and accessories are covered for five years, excluding batteries.
