Why Your Roller Shade Clutch Matters
As we have repeatedly shared, not all roller shades are made with the same quality or care. This is never more apparent than when operating the blind. For manual control blinds the clutch will determine the lift-ability and the last-ability.
Our manufacturer uses the industry’s most dependable, reliable and strong clutches- the RSeries from RollEase. We believe this clutch sets the standard, and its proven track record spanning over 30 years speaks for itself. We offer 4 different clutches to match lifting capacity to to shade weight and tube size for the best shade appearance and to ensure that your solar shades are easy to lift. Our shade size to clutch lifting capacity parameters tend to be more conservative that those of other manufacturers, but we believe that allows us to produce a better, more reliable product for our customers. Our clutch-operated shades are ideal for handling commercial applications or large weights.Key features and benefits:

French Door Shutter with a Cut-Out
Would you like to have shutters on your french doors which have a handle protrusion? Really, it's no problem.
French doors occasionally come with a lever type of handle which protrudes into the glass section of the door. In these situations, the French door will need a cut out. We, like most shutter manufacturers, offer a half circle and rectangular cut out. Typically a standard 4 1/4” half circle cut out is enough to accommodate most levers, though we also offer a 5 1/4” and 6 1/4”. Study the diagrams below to find your particular application.
The cut out plate is 1/2” thick. Custom cut outs are available (such as an oval) with a surcharge.

Survey says......Wood Blinds!
We recently came across a survey asking customers to compare aluminum mini blinds, wood blinds and different types of cell shades on a scale of 1-5, with 5 being excellent. These products were grouped because of their similar price points.
While all of the products scored fairly well, the winner in both quality and appearance was the wood blind. It actually scored a 4.94 out of 5 in both categories. Our experience with thousands of customers would intuitively back these results. The vast majority of people in the roughly $80 - $200 per window category are extremely happy with the look, light control and durability of their wood and faux wood blinds.
