NEW Size Limitations & Options Update
- Maximum height is now 96″ (or less depending on fabric and cassette)
- We strongly recommend ordering shades larger than 96” wide as two-on-one headrail. This fabric has a natural tendency to have “waves” in either the front or rear fabric in wider shades.
- NEW! Two-on-One headrail option. 2-on-1 shades can be produced to operate together with a single control or independently of each other with both shades having their own control.
- 2-on-1 maximum width 108″ as 2-on-1 with shared single control; 144″ as 2 independent shades on 1 headrail.
- Simplicity and PowerWand are not available as a single control, at this time.
- Minimum width for two-on-one shades have changed.
- Maximum shade height for Linen Blackout and Mystify have changed.
- 2-on-1 headrail shades that do not exceed 108″ in overall width can achieve alignment within 1/8″. If overall width exceeds 108″ then vane alignment may vary up to 3/8″.
- Simplicity and PowerWand 2-on-1 shades are only available with Cassette 100 & Cassette 120.
- Twin Pull is not available as a two-on-one headrail.

IN CASE YOU MISSED IT!
Extended Lead Times
We expect to experience extended lead times on Horizontal Shadings, Aluminum Mini Blinds, and the Crossweaves fabric in our Cellular product line starting July 22nd, due to a software conversion. Orders placed between July 22nd and August 5th will be projected to have a 21 day lead time. This could be longer or shorter depending on issues that may arise and backlog volume.
Woven Wood Surcharge
On May 10, 2019 the US Government announced a 25% tariff assessment on certain imported components and fabrics impacting the window covering industry. In an effort to minimize the negative effect on our customers, we will assume most of the burden associated with these additional costs, but consequently will implement a 10% surcharge on Woven Wood shades, effective July 15, 2019.
This surcharge will appear as a separate line item on your order/invoice and will be rescinded as soon as the tariffs are reduced or removed.
Thank you for your understanding and continued support!
