Skylight Shades and Bottom-Up Window Blinds: Introduction

ShadeSliderâ„¢ is the brand name for our retractable skylight shades and bottom-up window shade systems. Please see our price calculator for pricing information.

These remote control skylight and bottom-up window shades for residential and commercial applications can be controlled with our wireless wall remotes, or our 5 channel hand-held remotes, or by phone, tablet and laptop with our BroadLink™ hub.

We also have Z-Wave interfacing, so you can use these units with hubs like Vera and Alexa™.

Available now, the radio controlled ShadeSliderâ„¢ system has an energy efficient 12v motor that also works well in motorhome and RV applications, especially for bottom-up window treatments. We provide 110/220v AC to DC power supplies for home applications.

The unit shown in the video above is about 23.5 inch (60 cm) x 39.25 inch (100 cm); it demonstrates how the cellular fabric compresses and expands as the material is stretched across the opening.

The ShadeSlider™ comes complete with cellular material, motor, remote control (compatible with our blind, shade, drapery and window opener motors), AC/DC power supply, and aluminum frame cut to your dimensions.
