Mounting, Roman-folds


Most shades can be mounted in an individual bay or multi-bay format. Single bay shades are placed between the rafters. Multi-bay formats operate below the rafters.


Roller-mounted shades operate on pull cords, similar to U.S. vertical blinds, usually in a multi-bay style. They can be mounted with or without a metal roll covering cassette. In Town & Country conservatories a decorative timber cover molding is usually standard. For other conservatories, care must be taken to ensure that there is enough space between the top of the window frame and the underside of the rafters to allow space for the cassettes or moldings.


Roman-folds operate by sliding up or down a pair of tensioned guide wires at either side of the shade. They are pushed up and down by a hand pole, or can be motorized with a wireless remote control.

Note: Virtually all shade configurations can be motorized with wireless controls.
