Mecho Shade Systems
Mecho Shade systems has been the innovator for manual, motorized and automated solar shading and room darkening soultions.
For years, MechoShades® Systems help buildings increase their environment, economic and energy efficiency. ThermoVeil® shade cloths filter the sunlight to lower solar heat gain while providing a view to the outside. Architects and designers have incorporated MechoShades’ products in buildings that have been rated by the US Green Building Council’s LEED Rating System. Projects have included chain operated manual shades, as well as fully automated ElectroShades, controlled by the AAC SolarTrac software.
Recent studies confirm that standard window glazings do not adequately protect occupants from heat gain, solar glare or high energy costs. There are many alternative window treatments available to keep occupants safe and comfortable, while enhancing energy efficiency. Which one should you work with?
MechoShade’s WHY SHADES presentation makes a strong case for why roller shades are the best choice. MechoShades work with the dynamics of the sun and various types of window glazing to filter out the radiant component of sunlight, while allowing maximum comfort, lower energy consumption and a clear view of the outside. No wonder MechoShades have earned the title, “The Architect’s Choice.”
Chain-driven MechoShade® roller screens are part of the most comprehensive manual solar protection and room darkening system available. They feature a complete line of ThermoVeil® and EuroVeil® visually transparent sunscreens and room darkening shades, a full range of hardware options for manual shading featuring multi-band operation with one drive chain and our Lifetime Limited Warranty with 100% replacement and no depreciation over the life of the warranty.
