ATLANTA, Sept. 24 /PRNewswire/ -- MechoShade Home Systems knew that its new UrbanShade™ System was one of the best new window-shade products in the market. Now, two awards are evidence that the design community agrees.
The UrbanShade™ System this week received the CE Pro BEST (Best Electronic Systems Technologies) Award at the CEDIA Expo 2010. Winners were chosen by a panel of industry experts and the editors of CE Pro and Electronic House magazines. Judging criteria included creativity, innovation, incorporated equipment, obstacles overcome, aesthetics, and lifestyle benefits. MechoShade Home Systems' win is all the more significant this year because, according to CEDIA, "the quality of entrants was exceptional and the voting was tight."
Earlier this year, UrbanShade™ was recognized by the design community at the 2010 Best of NeoCon® product competition, in which it was awarded the Gold citation in the Window Treatments category.
UrbanShade™'s innovative design puts it far beyond the capabilities of most standard shades in the market. The interchangeable left- and right-drive bracket design of the system makes it easy for installers to reconfigure for wall, ceiling, or jamb-mount applications – reducing errors, streamlining installation, and saving time and money. It can also be installed as a manual unit and upgraded to motorized operation at a relatively low cost. The system's flexibility extends to its SnapLoc® mini-spline technology, which allows the shadecloth to be easily removed and replaced.
Convenient control solutions
To convert a manual UrbanShade™ into a motorized unit, only an optional upgrade kit, rather than an entirely new system, is necessary. This means that the cost will be significantly less when compared to upgrading other shade systems.
The UrbanShade™ configuration includes a broad choice of shadecloths, colors, and accessories. Also available is an assortment of brackets, fascia, end plates, and other components. The fascia is available in any one of seven colors, or it can also be wrapped with a shadecloth to match the shade band. There is also a prefabricated cassette option, a unit which includes fascia and end caps.
When a room-darkening solution is needed, side-and-sill-channel options are available. The flexibility, aesthetics, and the competitive price point of the UrbanShade™ are just a few of the reasons why designers sing the UrbanShade™ System's praises.
