It is quite amazing how many different variations of window coverings have been invented over time in order to accommodate every single consumer preference. Not only were various product types invented for a certain purpose or appearance, but distinct operating systems were also developed to ensure such products can be operated and controlled in the manner which is most comfortable for the user.
The Standard Cordlock is considered an entry-level operating system which features a locking mechanism to control the position of the shade. The cord is pulled inwardly to maneuver the shade and then moved outwardly to lock the shade in the desired position.
The Cordless operating system was introduced primarily for child and pet safety as well as enhanced aesthetics, as it eliminates all external lift cords. This allows the shade to be simply controlled by adjusting its bottom rail up or down. This system holds the product securely in any position.
The Continuous Cord Loop operating system is a traditional design which is especially beneficial for large shades which would otherwise be too heavy to lift. This all-in-one mechanism allows the user to raise, adjust, and lower the shade by simply pulling on the cord.
The SkyLift system is tailored for hard-to-reach windows and is specifically suited for skylight windows. It is often manually-operated by using a hand crank or telescoping pole. However, this system may also be motorized for increased convenience.
Motorization is becoming increasingly popular by the day, as it offers a motorized, wireless control of a singular or multiple window covering(s). Users can effortlessly raise, lower, traverse, or tilt their window coverings all with the convenience of pressing a button. Many motors now come with a corresponding “hub” which tremendously enhances the operation of products. It allows for the creation of schedules that can be controlled via a smartphone or tablet.
