Commercial Motorized Window Treatments Shading Options
Commercial motorized window treatments are not a new idea, although they are the most innovative idea for commercial buildings that you can easily attain. There are several different types of remote control window treatments, different operating systems and so many options available, that you are sure to find the perfect solution for all of your window shading projects.
Technology for commercial, hospitality, and healthcare window coverings is constantly evolving to give you many great options to suit your needs perfectly. It is considered outdated to walk to each window covering and lower or raise it—and it’s so time-consuming in a larger scale commercial application. Motorization of your window treatments is the solution to this and it comes with a large amount of options from which to choose. Your best solution for your application is to have a motorized window covering based on combining your preferences and the right type of system for all of your needs.
Three Main Types of Motorization
You can choose from three main types of motors for your commercial window treatments in Denver: standard, built-in radio frequency, and built-in intelligence. Each type of motor has its own benefits and options too.
Standard motors are hard-wired into your commercial space and they work with your management system with a multitude of fabric choices and control options. This type of intelligent system provides complete scalability and integration to fit the size and complexity of any size project no matter how small or how large. Hard-wired standard motors are very reliable and easy to operate and maybe a three or four-wire connection. Additional motors can be wired parallel or daisy-chained in order to add additional window treatments with motors to your system. You also have many options in the mounting hardware so that they will fit your windows no matter how large or small and they will also fit slim windowsills as well as wide window casings.
Your hardware is also available in a variety of colors, which usually include black, ivory, white, and charcoal bronze so that the hardware matches your fabric and the colors in your commercial area seamlessly. Specialized channels are available on the sides of each window covering to eliminate the light gap on the sides completely and to truly give you a blackout effect on windows in areas such as media rooms and conference rooms where you need it for perfect viewing of visual aids.
Standard motors are available with low voltage smart groups to save energy and to open and close window coverings in banks. You can also choose standard motors with preset stops that you program into the system for them to partially open or close at specific times.
The high tech versions allow you to integrate your window coverings and your lighting all in one application for ease of use. This type of synchronization can operate lights and windows on a small scale or even an entire floor of a large commercial building. This type of motorization system can include sensors to read real-time light and weather conditions that can serve as triggers for the window coverings to open and close. You can also benefit from a centralized control station for advanced operations in facility management by utilizing building controllers.
Radio Frequency (RF) Motors
Motors that use radio frequency use a three-wire motor and come with a multitude of control options. You can use a handheld remote control and utilize the simplicity of a plug and play system that is super easy to program. This type of motorized window treatment is perfect for an office, boardroom, and smaller commercial settings. You can choose to have the sun sensor or timer with an on-screen display to monitor your window coverings at a glance. The wireless wall switches can handle up to 5 channels of RF and the handheld remote can operate up to 16 channels. The encoded version RF motor can synchronize your automation between just a few small window shades or entire floors of large commercial applications.
Built-in Intelligence Motors
Intelligent motors boast easy network management and they offer a multitude of control options and great fabric choices. They include a modular design for easily adding components, as they are needed in an easy and trouble-free installation method. Window shades can be coupled together to reduce the number of motors you will need and save on costs for large projects. This type of motorized window treatment can fit any size project from large to small. The intelligent motors include a thermal overload protector and an electric brake. Some of these motors are encoded to operate both the window coverings and the lighting in a commercial setting.
Other fantastic options in an intelligent motor include push-button limits and external control options to override programs, rechargeable batteries for ultra-quiet operation, and maximized coverage for very tall and large areas with reduction of the light gap on the sides. Rechargeable battery motors fit any application where wiring is cost-prohibitive or it is not available. You can also benefit from reducing wiring costs with a low voltage motor that has a high voltage performance. These larger applications of window shadings are also available in models that cover extra-large windows but still maintain only a 5-inch profile. The dual roller shade is very useful in many different areas. It is achieved by stacking two shades or shade and a projection screen on top of each other in one unit. This gives you the advantages of using natural light while eliminating heat and glare, providing daytime privacy and it gives you a room darkening effect while integrating a projection screen at the same time. This versatile system is ideal for use in commercial, healthcare, educational and institutional applications.
As you can now see, commercial motorized window treatments can give you any and all of the qualities you are seeking. You have so many choices of modern window treatment products that are remote control for your convenience and you are sure to find several different types for your window shading solutions.
