Motorized Patio Shades Block Sun and Insects
With high-end outdoor living spaces trending, spectacular outdoor kitchens, dining areas and media spaces have become a key component of residential construction projects.
Insolroll Window Shading Systems partnered with Lutron to create the Oasis Patio Shades, for the luxury home market. These high-end patio shades bring advanced control to outdoor spaces by controlling heat, UV rays and glare, as well as eliminating pesky insects and providing protection from wayward golf balls.
Until now, a patio shading system capable of integrating with Lutron’s HomeWorks QS and RadioRA 2 lighting control systems did not exist. Insolroll will launch this luxury line of Oasis Patio Shades Driven by Lutron at the CEDIA Expo in Dallas, September 15-17, 2016.
“Our alliance with Lutron fills a void in the market for projects desiring patio shading and insect protection with full function Lutron control,” says Rick Pease of Insolroll. “This technical alliance puts Lutron patented motor drives inside Oasis Patio Shade and Retractable Insect Screen products. Shades can be seamlessly controlled through a Lutron system, or individually via the Lutron Pico® wireless remote. Now homeowners can enjoy their outdoor living spaces to the fullest, with all of the comfort, convenience and personalization control by Lutron offers,” added Pease.
With high-end outdoor living spaces trending, spectacular outdoor kitchens, dining areas and media spaces have become a key component of residential construction projects. Providing comfort and sun control, Oasis Patio Shades have grown significantly over the past three decades, as a result of weather conditions and insect infestations.
Insolroll has met the demand for today’s luxurious patio areas by designing Oasis Patio Shades to be either retrofitted or built directly into the structure at the time of construction. Insolroll is introducing two Oasis Shade Systems Driven by Lutron:
1. Oasis 2800 Patio Sun Shades are Insolroll’s most popular system. Shades are available in a range of solar screen fabrics with weaves from 1% to 10% open to accommodate various sun exposures and applications. The system includes a fully enclosed extruded aluminum headbox and a choice of cable guide or track system to provide sway control in breezy conditions. Translucent and waterproof fabric options provide privacy and a higher level of protection from the elements. Oasis 2800 Patio Sun Shades Driven by Lutron will be available for order on October 1, 2016.
2. Oasis 2900 Retractable Insect Screens provide all the benefits of the 2800 system, with the added feature that the edges of the fabric are zipper-captured in a side channel. This design element provides protection from mosquitoes and the illnesses they can transmit, and a system that is sturdier in windy conditions. When solar screen or waterproof fabrics are chosen, the system creates an enclosed area that will protect occupants and furnishings from harsh weather. Oasis 2900 Retractable Insect Screens Driven by Lutron will be available in early 2017.
