The ShadeLoc System is a side-channel assembly that captures the edges of a window-shade band. The zippered shade band glides silently within the side channels, effortlessly eliminating light gaps. It is equipped for solar-shading and room-darkening solutions, or both in one complete system. ShadeLoc's design minimizes the need for unsightly shade-support hardware such as idler rollers, guide cables, or stabilizing battens. It locks shade bands in place and allows them to stay put despite changes in a room's air pressure or air flow. Key features: • Full integration options. • No light gaps. • Total room darkening. • Tall shades that track smoothly. • Pre-assembled guide and side channels. • DoubleShade® and multi-band configurations. • Shade bands that lock into side channels. • Impact resistance. • Low future maintenance costs. • Simplified installation.
