The needs of different spaces are dependent on many variable factors. Photography studios and darkrooms need light-controlling solutions, while spaces like medical offices need room-dividing solutions for privacy. Many times our needs for our space can evolve over time, and that comes with many varying costs.

Our commercial blackout curtains and blackout roller shades both provide light control solutions for all spaces and can be moved or taken down if your needs change. Here’s why blackout roller shades may be a space-saving option for your space.

Light-Blocking Roller Shades

Light-blocking roller shades are a good option when your space only has one or a few windows that need light elimination. Roller shades are a space-saving option because, unlike blackout curtains, they do not take up space from side to side of your window. They are easy to move, even after installation, because of our smooth clutch that you move up and down.

Benefits of Commercial Blackout Roller Shades

Blackout Roller Shades offer many benefits, such as:

  • Energy-efficiency
  • Fire, fade, and mildew resistant
  • High-quality material and chain
  • ​​Aluminum fascia and side and sill channels.
  • Easy to install and move after installation
  • 100% blackout solution


Light-blocking roller shades are an excellent window treatment choice for spaces that need light-filtered solutions but don’t necessarily want a curtain hanging on each side of the window. Our shades enhance energy efficiency by blocking the heat that comes in tandem with bright sun rays. This solution can be important for many spaces, such as photography studios, laboratories, sleep studies, and more.

Fire, Fade, and Mildew Resistant

Our fire-resistant curtains and blinds pass the NFPA 701 test, one of the most rigid tests in the fabric industry. Fabrics used in commercial spaces are required by law to be certified as fire-resistant according to NFPA (National Fire Protection Association). NFPA 701 (Small Scale) testing measures the ignition resistance of a fabric after it is exposed to a flame for 12 seconds. The flame, char length, and flaming residue are recorded. Our shades are also completely fade and mildew resistant.

High-Quality Material and Chain

Our Blackout Roller Shades are constructed of room-darkening fabric made from tough, close-woven fiberglass coated on both sides with durable, sun-resistant, flexible vinyl (with a white exterior) that is PVC-free. Shades are raised and lowered by means of a #10 stainless steel bead chain.

Our Roller Shades are available in a variety of colors:

Aluminum Fascia and Side and Sill Channels

Our systems include a front and back Fascia that measures 4″ high with a 2-1/4″ bottom lip and snaps onto a 4″x4″ fascia bracket.

Available in white, vanilla, clear anodized, bronze, or black. Optional back fascia.

Side and sill channels are 2″x1″ extruded aluminum with synthetic pile inserts to eliminate light
leakage. Available in white, clear anodized, or bronze.

Roller Shade Operating System

The commercial-grade Clutch system uses stainless steel and can be mounted either on the right (standard) or left. Our special shade design prevents light from coming through where the chain exits the fascia.

Unlike competing clutches, our bi-directional clutch never needs adjusting and can be mounted either on the right (standard) or left.
