Bottom Rail

The bottom rail secures the ladders and cords to the bottom of the blind.
 


Premium Lift System

Cellular Shades, Premium Lift System A manually operated mechanism, with a continuous loop lift cord. Since the cord is a loop, the hanging length never changes. Raising large, heavy shades is easy because the force is leveraged. There is no need for a cordlock because the clutch stops the shade when the cord is not being pulled. Required on 3-on-1 Cellular shades, on these there are two control cords, one for the left panel and one for the right panel. The center panel is controlled by either the left or right panel controls, specified at time of order.
 


Cordless Lift

Cellular Shades, Cordless Lift System The Cordless Lift System eliminates the visual distraction of cords, leaving your windows with clean, unobstructed views. Precise movement is assured with the Cordless Lift System. Shades are raised and lowered effortlessly, remaining level and equalized exactly where they are left.
 


Motorized Tilt

The tilt control on these blinds is operated by a Motorized system. This system is remote controlled so you must purchase at least one system with the Remote in order to operate the tilt.
 


Cord Tilt

The tilter is the mechanism used to rotate the slats from the closed to open position. This mechanism operates with 2 cords instead of using a wand to tilt the blind. Cord tilt is our preferred tilter mechanism. It is a sturdier, direct gear drive mechanism that works great for large, heavy blinds.
 


Cord Lock

Component in the head rail of a horizontal product, which enables the blind to be raised or lowered and locked into any position.
 


Clutch Lift Control

The clutch lift control is a continuous loop chain that allows for smooth, trouble-free performance while raising and lowering the shade. The shade may be positioned partially open and the clutch lift will hold it in position.
 


Cutout

Procedure where a section of the blind is cutout to allow clearance for obstacles (i.e. Door handles, window cranks, bolts, etc.) that may be in the way of the blinds. To view our Cutout Measuring Instructions CLICK HERE.
 


Lift Cord

The cord that is pulled to raise and lower the blind.
 


Horizontal Color Coordinated Components

Color Coordinated means similar colors but not necessarily the same exact color. An exact match in color is not always possible for the components of the blind/shade. The color that best coordinates with the product's slat color will be chosen for use on the components. All components will not necessarily be of the same exact coordinated color. For example, you may order a Golden Oak colored product but the headrail does not come available in that color, so for this product the factory will have a coordinated color that they use which may be more of a cocoa color. The same is true for the other components of the product, such as the ladder strings, lift cords, tilter cord or tilter wand, bottom rail, and tassels.
 


Shades Color Coordinated Components

Color Coordinated means similar colors but not necessarily the same exact color. An exact match in color is not always possible for the components of the blind/shade. The color that best coordinates with the product's fabric color will be chosen for use on the components. All components will not necessarily be of the same exact coordinated color. For example, you may order an Candlelight colored product but the headrail does not come available in that color, so for this product the factory has a coordinated color that they use which may be a beige color. The same is true for the other components of the shade, such as the lift cords, tilter cord, bottom rail, and tassels. Some options may not be color coordinated such as beaded continuous loop lift chains.
 


Cloth Tape

Cloth tapes run vertically over the ladder strings of the blinds, the ladder strings being the strings that hold up the blind. These tapes have two distinct advantages, one is the ability to add an accent color to the blind and the other is that it offers a little more privacy than the standard ladder strings.
 


One Way Draw

2 on 1 Headrail The blinds all draw towards the same side of headrail. The track is reversible allowing for the controls to be on either the side of the draw or the side opposite of it.
 


Two Way Draw

2 on 1 Headrail The blind draws equally to both sides leaving the center space open. (Note: On all draw types, the track is reversible allowing for the controls to be on either side.)

Z-Frame

The Z-Frame style is typically utilized for inside mounts where the window dimensions are out-of-square and/or a decorative casing is desired around the window. The Z-Frame provides a square opening for the panels to be mounted in and disguises the uneven proportions of the window.
