Operating Systems For Shades

When it comes to your window treatments, you not only want fashionable additions to your home, but something helpful as well. There is nothing more convenient than a new operating system to help adjust your shades effectively. Check out the latest Hunter Douglas systems as well as the different shade options to choose from.

Get Motorized

The convenience of adjusting your window treatments with the touch of a button isn’t just a dream, it’s a reality with the Hunter Douglas PowerView™ motorized system. This is an award-winning unit that not only gives you the option of controlling your shades with their Pebble Remote Control, but also with the PowerView App that is applicable on any smart phone or tablet. This gives you the freedom to adjust your blinds from your mobile device, as well as adjust individual rooms and window treatments personally with the unique Pebble Remote Control that stores up to 6 settings. If you prefer a mounted wall unit for a secure spot to modify your shades or sheers, PowerView Surface is a great application for a permanent control source. Not only is the PowerView™ motorized operating system powerful, it has the ability to run strictly off of battery power if hardwiring the unit into your home isn’t a possibility. Running from battery power is more efficient for energy costs and also gives PowerView™ the ability to hide its hardware and battery into the headrail for a clean appearance. This unit is available with most Hunter Douglas shades and sheers, and will provide your home with adjustable comfort for many years to come.

Cords Versus Cordless

If a motorized operating system isn’t what your seeking for your home, take a look into the traditional corded systems, as well as cordless options, for an alternative to opening your window treatments. Cordless systems mean a safer environment for households with children or pets, and can give your windows an organized or uncluttered look. Hunter Douglas LiteRise® is the premier cordless operating system that can be pulled or pushed from the bottom to adjust and stays in place with ease depending on how much light you want to allow in. If you’re in the mood for a more traditional pace for your windows and prefer the familiar corded operating system, there are still several options to choose from. UltraGlide® gives you the ability to lift your window treatments with a cord but also comes with a safety feature that retracts the cord as it adjusts, meaning no long or dangling cords that make your home unsafe for children or pets. EasyRise™ is another corded operating system with a modern twist. This system allows for an easy lift that adjusts on a continuous loop for an organized cord that remains in place wherever you choose to leave it. These systems pair perfectly with Honeycomb shades, Roman shades, sheers, and many other Hunter Douglas products available. To ensure you’re choosing right operating systems for your blinds, contact the Blind and Shutter Gallery for more information on different ways to lift the window treatments of your choice.

Get Unique

Not all windows are the same, and that goes for size, shape, and function. However, covering your oddly shaped windows has never been easier than with operating systems to fit your specific needs. For a distinct appearance as well as a unique lifting system, consider the innovative Top-Down/Bottom-Up. This is a perfect look for a bedroom or bathroom where you frequently adjust your treatments for privacy. The Top-Down/Bottom-Up operating system can easily be adjusted from the top or the bottom individually, allowing you to open just the top while closing the bottom and vice versa. This system can be used with the cellular Honeycomb lines of shades, Roman shades, and woven wood shades to give your home an overall exclusive look. If you have more expansive larger windows or patio doors, you may want to consider covering them with Vertiglide™, the one and only vertically oriented system that gives you the opportunity to cover those areas with ease. The vertical design covers large windows or sliding glass doors from top to bottom on a guided track for adequate sun protection and privacy.
