Operation of Our Sunroom and Solarium Blinds
Our shades are either manual systems (operated by pull cords or with a hand held wand) or are motorized:
Shades with pull cords use a system of hidden cords and pulleys. They are perfect for sunrooms with a steep pitch. These sunroom shades can be pulled individually or together at the same time…
Wand Shades, are designed for sunrooms and solariums with a low pitch. These are operated individually, by hand, using a handle on the bottom of each shade. When a shade is raised high enough, a wand is used against the handle or bottom edge of shade.
Spring Tension Wand Shades for rooms with a moderate to steep pitch are an alternative to having pull cords and are held in place by the tension from spring rods located in the bottom of each shade…
Motorized Sunroom and Solarium Shades
Motorized sunroom shades are an attractive, fun, high-tech system offering great ease of operation. Shade motors are operated using a wall switch or radio frequency remote control (either hand held or wall mounted). They can also be controlled from other remote devices, such as smart phone apps, when integrated with a modern home automation system (not provided by Thermal Designs).
Shade Carrier Systems… Our sunroom and solarium shades are carried by gliders incorporated into each shade pleat. They glide up and down in preexisting shade tracks found in the beams of most solarium and sunroom models. When this track is absent, we fabricate decorative, add-on track specifically for your installation. For curved solariums, we bend the track to fit the beam profile.
Maximize Energy Efficiency and Temperature Control
Insulated Sunroom Shades are made with Thinsulate™. This insulation layer inside each shade will keep your room warmer in winter and cooler in summer, reducing your heating and cooling costs…
Shades for the Solarium Gable End Windows and Doors are also available. Each panel of the gable end can have its own shade that conforms to the roof line in curved or straight eave areas.
Solar Shades are screen roller shades for vertical sunroom windows, require no track and are operated by bead chain pulls or motorization.
Sunbrella® Upholstery fabrics are warm, soft, durable and moisture resistant. We offer this material in 12 basic styles and colors. Shades made with this material have Energy Shield backing and can also be insulated with Thinsulate.
