CORDLESS ROLLER SHADE DEVELOPMENT
As the window treatment industry moves toward cord-free applications, we are working to develop new construction options that will allow us to offer a completely cord-free roman shade that is combined with a roller shade lift mechanism.
In this new method, the roman shade is attached to a wood head rail and is made with small rib pockets sewn into the liner along the back edges of the shade. A cordless roller shade is attached to the wood headrail and follows down the length of the roman shade. Ribs are inserted into the rib pockets of the roman shade, catching the roller shade between the roman shade and ribs.
The roller shade and roman shade operate in tandem using the roller shade’s cordless lift mechanism. The shade is raised by pushing up or pulling down on the bottom bar of the roller shade, allowing the shade to stop at any preferred position.
This construction method eliminates the need for any attached or hanging lift cords and offers a completely cord-free roman shade.
We are continuing our efforts in developing this new method for our Natural Shade Collections as well as a new Fabric Roman Shade Collection.
