2 on 1 Headrail Specifications
Because large blinds are difficult to raise and lower, the 2 on 1 headrail option allows two smaller blinds to share a common headrail and valance. This gives the overall blinds a cleaner appearance.
Cordless Lift
Raise and lower your blinds without cords. This upgrade is great for homes with children because there are no dangerous lift cords. Not recommended for sizes wider than 96 inches.
Motorization
Make sure to order at least one remote or smart hub to control your motorized shades. One remote can operate more than one shade. Raise and lower your window shades with the touch of a finger. Our remote controlled shades use a radio technology system.
Width:
12" - 102"
Height:
12" - 120"
Power Source:
Rechargeable USB-C Battery.

Wand Motorization
The wand motorization is ideal for child safety with no lift cords. With the press of a button raise and lower the shades with ease. Simply press and hold the button to raise or lower the shades and release to stop at the desired position. The wand motorization operates with a battery powered motor.
Width:
28" - 72"
Height:
12" - 118"
Power Source:
8 AA batteries (included)
Battery Life Expectancy:
1 year (about 500 operation cycles)
Other:
Wand is clear with white cord inside and will be approximately half the drop of the blind.
Charger
Used to re-charge the batteries for a motorized shade. One charger can be used for multiple motorized shades so you may buy just one per order but you can always buy extra. If you select motorization we recommend adding at least one charger.
Type:
Charge block & 80" USB-C cable
Remote - 15 Channel
Control up to 15 individual shades or groups of shades on one remote control. Must select the motorization upgrade as well.

Q:
Are the 1 inch gauge aluminum blinds room darkening blinds or light filtering blinds?
Asked on Jan 9 2013 by Ingebor
A:
They are going to help filter the light out of the room however not listed as a "Room Darkening or "Light Filtering". The slats themselves will block all light but there will be light seepage between each slat as well as the route holes for the lift cords.

First of all, the ordering, shipping and delivery were all without a hitch and everything arrives undamaged. My honest opinion is that they could have put a little sturdier boxing and packing material around the blinds to protect them - but I can't argue with the fact they arrived here unscathed.

Their customer service responded promptly and professionally to an inquiry about shipping and delivery dates - class act!!!

There were absolutely NO missing parts with METAL hangers (inside window frame style) and their screws that they provided were solid GOOD hardware - not some of the garbage that I have seen with other blinds.

They also included a few extra top pieces of aluminum that cover the blind mechanism up top (sorry, no idea what those are called) - but it was nice of them to do so - because I mishandled one and bent it during installation and used one of the extras that they had provided...

All in all - the blinds are WELL MADE - and they provide a great service - It was worth the $ and seeing how receptive they were to fill me in on shipping and delivery dates, I suspect that their customer service is solid!!!

Thanks for the blinds!!

The 8 gauge blinds are a superb value. I bought cheap blinds from the home stores for years, they were always a hassle to install and always required tedious adjusting (and early replacement). Chalet 8 gauge blinds are very sturdy (as blinds go) and a perfect fit every installation for me so far.
