The Melhanna Roller Shade collection features practical but exciting patterns that are perfect for the home and office. Our chic Solas collection offers inventive, decorative roller shades that are sure to make a style statement.
Choose from sheer fabrics designed to let the natural light in, screen shades that allow for a view-out while also offering a level of privacy and light control, and blackout shades. Then, select from a variety of valance and fascia options, as well as a handful of control options.
Features of Our Roller Shades
Privacy and Light Control
Our roller shade fabrics come in light filtering, blackout, or screen shade fabrics. The level of privacy and light control depends on how translucent or how opaque the shade is. Some light filtering roller shades can be sheer, allowing a maximum amount of light through. Other light filtering shades can be quite opaque, allowing only a minimal amount of light in, while also limiting the view out.
Screen shade fabrics also come in varying degrees of opacity – often referred to as "openness." A low openness factor means that the screen shade filters more light than does a screen shade with a high openness factor. At the same time, the lower the openness factor, the higher the level of privacy.
We also provide side channels that will eliminate any light that might come in due to the gap between the sill and the roller shade fabric.
Hard-to-reach windows (motorized)
Sliding glass doors
Skandia Window Fashions has been very proactive in developing innovative solutions that reduce the risk of strangulation. Our cord-free roller shade offering is Best for Kids certified, and offers both a standard cordless system as well as a motorized option.
Skandia also offers corded roller shades. All corded roller shades come with a safety tension device that, when installed properly, reduces the risk of strangulation. However, there is an inherent risk of strangulation any time that cords are present. As such, we encourage that homeowners with children purchase only cordless window treatments.
Exterior Use: Select fabrics are available for exterior use.
Valances: Choose from a decorative soft valance, multiple fascia options, and a fully enclosed cassette. The various options provide a stylish solution to hiding the roller shade componentry.
Upgraded Lift Systems: The continuous cord loop and cord-free lift systems make it much easier to operate your roller shades. Heavier duty clutches will also make shades easier to operate. An upgraded lift system, or an upgraded clutch mechanism is recommended for wider, heavier shades.
Panel Track: Most roller shade fabrics can be used as a panel track system. Panel track roller shades are ideal for sliding glass doors or for use as a room divider. The panel track system can be as few as two and as many as six separate panels that can be slid horizontally on a track system. They operate very much like vertical blinds, however without the ability to tilt the individual panels.
Motorization: For the highest level of comfort, convenience, and creativity look no further than motorized roller shades. Motorization unlocks a wide variety of options ranging from solar powered motors, hard-wired motors, motors that integrate fully with home automation systems, and motorized window treatments that can be operated from your smartphone or tablet.
