    Your ShadingProblems Solved

    The Main Story

    You have a lot of shades or blinds, so youdont bother adjusting many of them.

    Your current automated window treatments

    are noisy.

    Youd like to press one button that lowers

    shades, dims lights, and starts an audio-

    visual system.


    Our automated window treatments providetouch of a button control via keypads,

    wireless remotes, and mobile devices, so you

    can adjust several window treatments at one

    time with a single button press.

    Our automated window treatments utilize a

    quiet, low-voltage drive, so movement

    isnt disruptive.

    You can integrate our automated window

    treatments with third-party control systems for

    one button control that will lower shades,

    dim lights, and start a movie.

    Lutron Solution

    4 The Main Story

    Due to the architecture in the room, youcant run wires for automated shades.

    Our cellular shades are wire-free, so theyre

    ideal for challenging situations. Theyre also a

    great design solution for applications where

    running wire would be cumbersome, such as

    with French doors.

    Your Venetian blinds arent very versatile.

    The stackback from traditional drapery

    obstructs your view.

    You frequently need to replace the battery

    in your shade.

    Our Venetian blinds provide independent

    control of blind height and slat angle.

    Our blinds also feature independent tilt and lift

    control, and ensure that the tilt position between

    adjacent blinds remains within 1/16th of an inch.

    Our Kirb vertical drapery system lifts fabric

    up (instead of opening and closing from side to

    side) and completely out of the way, eliminating

    stack back.

    Our new cellular shades have a 3-year battery

    lifemuch longer than other battery-powered

    shades currently available.

    6 Whats New in Energy




  • 8/3/2019 Lutron Lightshow Magazine Winter 2011


    When it comes to preventing heat loss,these shades can make a huge impact.

    You already know that shades are an effortless

    way to conserve energy. Simply lowering them in

    the summer prevents the suns harsh rays from

    heating up a room (and causing air conditioning

    to work overtime), while raising them in the

    winter captures heat from those rays.

    But now there are new shades in town

    shades that provide even greater energy

    savingsso much more, in fact, that they can

    double the R value of a triple-pane window.

    The game-changer?

    Lutron cellular shades.

    8 Whats New in Energy

    filtered glow Provide varying levels of privacy R Value = 3.5

    These wire-free, battery powered shades have

    air pockets that trap heat, providing superior

    insulation. Cellular shades come in a variety

    of styles, and as you can see from the chart

    above, deliver varying R values depending on

    the style. (R values are a measure of thermal

    resistance; the larger the R value, the more

    effective the product.)

    Adding a room-darkening, single-cell shadeto a single-pane window, for example, can

    increase that windows R value more than

    five timesgiving it a better R value than a

    shade-less, double-pane, low-e argon window.

    And that R value is also better than a triple-

    pane, low-e window without any shades at all.

    (Obviously, you need to lower cellular shades

    in order to capitalize on their energy-saving

    shade styles














    is the capacity of an

    insulating material to

    resist heat flow. The

    higher the R value,

    the greater the

    insulating power.

    A typical dual-pane

    window has an

    R Value of 2.0.

    R Value

    Of course, when you choose Lutron cellular

    shades youre not only getting shades with

    terrific insulating properties, youre also getting

    the added benefits of motorization, toogiving

    you more flexibility with daylight control.
