Skylights are standout features within any home: they flood rooms with natural light, expand their spaciousness and usability, and offer a stunning view of the sky, but the occasional sun glare or excess of heat can be enough to reverse its appeal. While dusk and dawn provide comfortable warm hues, midday overheats, and sunsets strain the eyes.
Concord Shading Systems (CSS) offers a wide variety of manual and motorized skylight shading, all using our proprietary Constant Tension Spring System to create a motorized skylight option for any style skylight. Simple to operate, skylight blinds and shades allow skylit rooms to be usable at any point in the day. While some rooms call for mere glare protection, others require full or partial sun blocking. It’s never too sunny or dark to use a room with properly harnessed natural light.
With Sun Screen style fabrics, Light Blocking Fabrics and insulated Fabrics, we can create a custom option for your home. Utilizing a wall mount switch or a handled remote you can operate your skylight shade from anywhere in your home. To learn more about the CSS unique Constant Tension Spring System click here.
The main three types of skylight shading are fabric pleated and cellular shades, roller shades and roman style skylight shades. Our roman style skylights provide interior building spaces with the warmth and brightness of natural daylight, while are rollers style skylight shades allow you to control the perfect amount of heat and light in any area. Cellular shades are available in single, double and triple cell formats with each additional cell adding to the R-value of the shade. Cellular shades are perfect for the energy conscious consumer.
These custom-made shades can be made with sheer, privacy, room darkening and fire-retardant fabrics and liners. Both 12V DC and 110V AC options are available, depending on lift capacity needs.
