Fixed Shades are non-retracting shades that are custom fitted to the architectural details of the window. They can also be used as a creative attention getting corporate identity or advertising banners. Fixed shades can be made in a wide variety of custom shapes and mounting solutions. Some of the more popular fixed shade solutions are:
Frame Mounted Fixed Shades:
A shade cloth mounted in an aluminum frame with Velcro strips on the back of the frame for mounting.
Freeform Fixed Shades:
A Freeform Fixed shade is a loose sheet of shade cloth, trimmed to the size and shape of the window opening or glazing with velcro strips along the edges to mount the shadecloth. If you send us a .dfx file of any shape, at actual size, our computerized shade cutting system will cut it accurately.
Wall or Ceiling Mounted Fixed Shades:
A finished shadeband, complete with SnapLoc ® Spline and concealed hembar, is mounted to a SnapLoc “C” channel on the wall or ceiling. A fixed shade can also be hung from the ceiling by mounting the shadeband, complete with SnapLoc Spline and concealed hembar, on a SnapLoc tube, which is then hung from the ceiling by cables.
Fixed ImageShades ™:
Custom inkjet images can be reproduced right on the shadecloth. Motorized ImageShades can save on having to erect scaffolding each time you need to replace banners.
