Projection screen and window shade maker Screen Innovations (SI) has broadened its Nano product category with the addition of Nano Manual Box shade cassettes, providing integrators with the chance to dress every window with matching cassettes. Designed to match the cosmetics of the motorized version of Nano, Nano Manual Box offers integrators and end-users the ability to use a combination of less-expensive manual shades on smaller ancillary windows, like those in a guest bedroom, and motorized units on windows in main spaces like family rooms, while maintaining a unified look throughout a residence.
Like the motorized Nano Box, Nano Manual Box comes in more than 12 decorator colors, including custom finishes, can be fitted with a variety of shading fabrics, mounts quickly and easily to a variety of bracket styles, and offers standard and reverse-roll options. SI rounds out the aesthetic and functionality of Nano Manual Box with a simple pull tab that matches the shade fabric and a telescoping wand to position the shades of hard-to-reach windows.
“Our introduction of a new Nano Manual Box shade offering helps SI dealers provide a cohesive shading solution for every window of a customer’s home. The manual and motorized Nano cassettes and open roll look exactly the same; aesthetically, there’s no way to tell the difference,” says SI CEO Ryan Gustafson in the announcement statement. “The scope and revenue potential of a shading project is no longer dictated by the number of motorized units required. Integrators can offer a solution for every window in a home, even those on which a manually controlled treatment will suffice. Adding our new Nano Manual Box shades further enhances our dealer’s quiver, allowing them to better compete in the shading market.”
