2019 Price List Corrections and Updates

Introduction

  • New depth requirements for motorized shades (open roll) listed on page 7.

Cellular Shades

  • Cellular shades price grids have an incorrect width price break of 31. The correct price break is 30.
  • Cellular Vertical cutouts are now available on side rails; $62 retail surcharge.
  • New Cellular Cordless Top Down/Bottom Up surcharge: Shades up to 48″ now $100 surcharge; shades larger than 48” now $150 surcharge.

Vertical Blinds

  • Pattern Blackout has moved from price group 2 to price group 4.

Fauxwood Blinds

  • FauxToday Cordless first height price break is 42″, instead of the printed 36″.
  • Woodscapes 2″ now come standard with valance magnets. Hidden valance clips are no longer an option for Woodscapes.

Roller Shades

  • Dusk shades over 94″ will be made on a 2″ tube.
  • Dusk shades over 120″ will be made on a 3″ tube.
  • Dual shades in Dusk now have a maximum size of 108″ x 108″.

TwinLight Transitional Shades

  • We do not recommend ordering shades larger than 72″ x 72″ unless ordered as 2 shades on 1 headrail. This fabric has a natural tendency to have “waves” in either the front or rear fabric in shades over 72″ x 72″; this is not a defect.

New National Safety Standards!

Safety standard changes will go into effect for all products effective 11/18/18.
This affects all corded blinds and shades.

All standard cord control blinds & shades will come with a default cord length of 1/3 the length of the blind or shade. Our previous default was approximately 50% of the overall length.

  • Special length cords available as no charge option but must be specified at time of order.
  • All Top Down/Bottom Up corded shades will have a default of 1/3 the length of the shade for the cord operating the bottom rail and the moving middle rail when both rails are in the fully lowered position.

Horizontal Blinds

  • Wand tilt is the default tilt option for 2″. Cord tilt available upon request.
  • All horizontal 2″ and 2 ½” blinds less than 36″ in length with a cord tilt must specify a custom cord length as the default length of 1/3 will not allow adequate cord for the rotation. We recommend a wand tilt only for these lengths.

Vertical Blinds

  • Wand control is the default option for Vistec Tracks.
  • Cord and chain control is optional upon request.
  • Verticals under 24″ in length will only be available as a Vistec wand control.

Cordless and Motorized shades are more affordable than ever and we encourage everyone to specify these products to create homes that eliminate strangulation hazards.
