Genesis Roller Shades

Genesis Roller Shades

The Genesis fabric collection features Performance Screens, Designer Screens and Solar Screens, ranging from 1% to 25% openness. Most screen fabrics have an FR rating (NFPA 701 or CA Title 19) and an eco-friendly certification (Greenguard or Oeko-tex 100). Many also have anti-microbial specifications. The ability to use the Genesis fabric as a single roller shade, dual roller shade or Panel Track shade offers versatility in any commercial or educational institution setting.

Genesis Roller Shades feature an SL Clutch and metal hem bar standard; both color coordinated to the shade material. Other options include: Small or Large Cassette, Fascia systems, Light Blockout system and several metal bead chain colors.

Operating the roller shade using a continuous loop bead chain is easy. A Cord Tension Lock is installed on the operating side of the clutch operated shade to secure the cord and keep the continuous loop tight.
