Being able to do what you love from home can be one of the great pleasures of life – but it is important to be able to clearly separate your work from the rest of your life at the end of the day. Brands like Qmotion offer a variety of discrete home integration systems that upgrade your manually-operated treatments to motorization with control choices that include a simple wall switch, remotes and even your favourite smart devices.
Great design is beautiful to live with, provides variable light control, insulates rooms against heat and cold while saving energy and protecting your furnishings from damaging UV rays. It can even absorb sound, improving the acoustics in a room.
In addition to providing glare and heat control, brands like Qmotion and Hunter Douglas also custom-manufacture shades that are ideal for displaying logos, window signage and customized displays. Along with the newest and most innovative control technology, many shading solutions can interface with integrated building automation systems for conference rooms, training rooms and even complete buildings. Shade fabrics come in transparent, translucent and blackout options and offer varying degrees of privacy, view-through, glare control and heat gain. All fabrics are ecologically safe and fire retardant.

When planning and executing business at a large scale, it is important to consider opportunities for cost savings in some unexpected places, directly related to the relative size of your operations. One of our design team’s favourites, Lutron innovated the world’s first quiet, precise shade control systems that integrate reliably and seamlessly with light control systems. Lutron’s systems enhance the energy-saving potential of daylight harvesting products and use daylight sensors and dimmable fixtures to set and automatically maintain the ideal light level. It can also lower the load on a building’s HVAC system to reduce energy consumption further.
