CORE

Use

An all-purpose roller shade bracket, functional with or without fascia.   

Notes

Provides locking and tension system ensuring tube remains in place. Also includes self-leveling adjustments.

Avoid

 3.5” profile accommodates most inside mount requirements, but limits apply (3”=8.5ft. L & 4”=13ft. L). If inside mounting, avoid small depths/pocket dimension before specifying.  


SIGNIA

Use 

The” Mecho” equivalent for architectural specifications. This bracket operates excellently when in need of extra light coverage.

Notes 

Allows for back fascia and the elimination of fascia.  Increased durability also lengthens shade height.

Avoid

Costs three times the Core system, use only when necessary.


SKYLINE/DUAL WITH FASCIA

Use

A compact and ideal two-shade system paired with a fascia that covers both roller shade tubes; this bracket complements any room giving it a contemporary style.

Notes

At 5.5”x5.5” this is the best compact dual system. Also ensures light containment with solid top fascia. Frequently seen in guestrooms when specifying both blackout and sheer in one treatment.

Avoid

Specifying sheer closest to window when inside mounting and using side channels.
