EDEN PRAIRIE, Minn. –– Aug. 29, 2019 — To accommodate the larger windows of today’s open-concept designs, Legrand introduces its new QMotion Wider Qadvanced Shades. Showing for the first time at CEDIA Expo 2019 in Booth 905, Wider Qadvanced Shades are the only motorized shades on the market, hard-wired or battery-operated, available in sizes as large as 13 feet wide by 15 feet tall in select fabric options.
The growing preference for open-concept home designs featuring larger windows that grant greater access to natural daylight is in turn increasing the demand for automated shading systems to help control that natural light indoors. However, many homeowners are struggling to find motorized shading systems on the market that fit their ultra-large windows. In response, QMotion has expanded its Qadvanced Roller Shade offering in larger sizes.
“Our QMotion Qadvanced line is continually evolving to provide more options and solutions that help make automated shading easy for homeowners to take advantage of,” said Fritz Werder, vice president and general manager for Legrand | AV. “First we offered the industry’s smallest battery-operated shades, and now we are proud to offer the largest. Wider Shades provide the same clean, sleek aesthetic as all Qadvanced shading solutions, in addition to QMotion’s renowned features for simplifying installations and optimizing performance.”
Available in a wide range of colors, Wider Qadvanced Shades feature virtually soundless operation in hard-wired or battery-operated versions and a patented design that utilizes torsion springs to reduce energy consumption. Simple to install, the hard-wired models use standard Cat 5e/Cat 6 cables for both power and communication and feature a Zigbee HA 1.2 radio inside the motor, eliminating the need for extra shade motor bridge devices. The battery-operated family of solutions uses only internal batteries, eliminating the problem of hiding external battery packs or wires. Like all the models found in QMotion’s automated roller shade lineup, Wider Qadvanced Shades can be controlled via remote, mobile device, or the company’s exclusive manual override feature that prevents stripping the motor during adjustments.
Legrand’s new Wider Qadvanced Shades are available now. More information on QMotion shading solutions can be found at http://www.qmotionshades.com/.
