Commercial Motorized Shades

Innovative Openings has the experienced staff to help you design a motorized shade control system that meets the specific needs of your commercial application. We have solutions for the unique needs of restaurants, retail, health care, schools, and hospitality.

Motorized Shades Simplify Operation and Increase Efficiency

Nearly every window and patio shade we sell can be motorized and connected to controlled with mobile device apps or integrated with building control systems. Additionally, we provide customized design, sales and installation, including free 60 day design, estimating and detailing services for builders, architects and interior designers.

  • We motorize large and small commercial projects, from individual restaurants to franchises, office buildings of any size, multiple dwelling units, etc.
  • We motorize large, corporate applications with hundreds of windows, including automation controls that address all of the needs of a large site: energy management and optimization, individual space control, occupant comfort, sensor and timer control, etc.
  • We plan, design and install large building and development projects where individual control is desired, such as Multiple Dwelling Units (MDUs), multiple-retail locations, hotels, schools, hospitals and more.
  • We were the first manufacturer to offer UL-Listed complete shading systems, which help make your inspection process go faster and more smoothly.
