Motorization is not only available for roller shades, now cellular shades can be motorized too.

Newer condos all around New York City and Brooklyn are being built with larger and larger windows. Cellular shades help block out more light, insulate better in summer and winter and have the advantage of opening from the top and bottom. (top down bottom up shades)

Motorized cellular shades such as Duette® and Duette® Architella from Hunter Douglas, are much more convenient to use eliminating all cords and enabling Hunter Douglas, the manufacturer, to build wider and taller shades. This is most helpful when it comes to making a single wide shade that blocks all the light in a bedroom.

To learn more about the new PowerView™ technology from Hunter Douglas and to see how motorization can help your needs, please see bellow.

The design phase begins normally with a meeting in the apartment. First we choose fabrics and style. Based on that we match the appropriate motorization system (DC powered low voltage or Battery Operated). Controlling the shades can be done via remote, a wall switch, iPhone app or a 3rd party system.

Hunter Douglas Applause, Duette and Duette Architella cellular shades are available in top down mode (standard), bottom up mode and top down bottom up. Fabrics that are available range from sheer, translucent to blackout.

Our in-house electrician will wire each room based on the system selected above. Battery operated shade require no wiring while DC powered shades use transformers. During wiring phase we hide all the wires coming from the motor and leading to the transformer. Typically transformers are plugged in in outlets near the floor and wires will run inside the wall to the shade. Low voltage systems with multiple shades sometimes use "home run wiring" to a central location in the house. The new PowerView remote control and surface mount switch from Hunter Douglas offer wireless connection that does not need any wiring.

Installation of cellular (honeycomb) shade weather electric or manual would be the same. Our professional installers are capable of installing these shades to the ceiling weather its concrete or not or to the wall above the window. Side mount brackets are not available for cellular shade. Once shades are installed we test them and move to the next step which is programming.
