Window Shades

From offering privacy to keeping a building cool, shades provide a number of functions. However, like most items in today's world, window shades have undergone a dramatic transformation in recent years. By incorporating various aspects of technology into their design, installation, and operation, shades are able to become not just a piece of fabric at a window, but an integral part of a home design process. To learn more about what makes today's window shades from Rollac so innovative, here are some of their most impressive features.

Smart Technology

Only a few years ago, a person had to get up, walk over to a shade, and physically raise or lower it by pulling a string. But with today's automatic window shades from Rollac, controlling shades is as easy as pushing a button. Whether it's using a remote control to activate one shade or multiple ones, there's rarely a need to get off the sofa when adjusting your shades. And if you want to see advanced technology in action, download the myLink app to your mobile device. Once this is done, you'll be able to control your shades no matter where in the world you happen to be. With this technology, you can raise or lower your shades as needed while on vacation, making it appear as if someone is still at home. Not only will this help your energy bill, but also be a strong deterrent to criminals looking for an empty house to burglarize.

Strong and Durable

Unlike many types of shades typically found in traditional stores, Rollac automatic window shades are made to withstand the toughest conditions. This is especially important regarding wind gusts, which can quickly damage or destroy many run-of-the-mill shades. However, Rollac window shades have been tested to withstand wind gusts in excess of 80 miles per hour, and are also made of fabric that is specifically made to stay wrinkle-free and taut, ensuring there will never be any unwanted lines in the fabric. And with it installing easily over a variety of surfaces, it will stay wind-resistant no matter the elements outside, guaranteeing an aesthetically-pleasing appearance day after day.

Collision Detection

Along with strong winds, one thing that can severely damage most traditional shades is when the shades hits against another object. But as smart home technology has evolved, Rollac has put this technology to good use in its automatic window shades. Through the implementation of its collision detection system, Rollac window shades will automatically cease lowering when they make contact with an obstacle, and instead immediately begin to retract. By doing so, both the shade and the object it touches will not be damaged. This can also be very useful in areas where children are present, since this will keep both shades and kids injury-free.

Energy Efficiency

Since weather changes during the course of a day, it's virtually impossible for most people to properly adjust their shades to take advantage of conditions to let them heat up or cool down their home. But with automatic window shades, this can be done with little effort. Not only can a person use the above-mentioned myLink app to raise or lower shades anytime they wish, but the shades themselves are made of a unique solar-screen material, enabling them to reduce the amount of sunlight entering a room much more efficiently than traditional shades.
