United Shade to offer three lines of roller shades for manufacturers and the aftermarket
ELKHART, Ind. — Dicor Corporation affiliate United Shade is helping both RV manufacturers and RV dealers take advantage of the popularity of roller shades with several offerings for 2015.
Under the company’s “Shades of Excellence” theme, the offerings come in three designs, and can be motorized or manual, including:
• Heavy Duty (HD) options for heavy fabrics with a long traverse, available in Day/Night Motorized, Day/Night Slow Up and Night and can be motorized or manual.
• Light Weight (LT) to help shave off unit weight. Lighter than HD with a smaller mounted profile, this design is great for tight spots between valances and windows. It is available in Day/Night Motorized, Single Motorized and manual Slow Up.
• The Classic Series (CS) with an elegant retro look. It uses familiar, residential style adjustments and a no-headrail design that’s perfect for space and weight restrictions. Employs universal wall or ceiling mounting brackets and is manual only.
“United Shade provides the most comprehensive roller shade product offering in the industry,” said United Shade President Bob Keller. “United Shade is truly the shade expert in this regards, and we see some great opportunities for our manufacturing partners to augment their décor with these distinctive, popular and highly convenient shades.”
“Furthermore, in the aftermarket these offerings provide a simple way for RVers to enhance the interior décor of their present units while adding a lot of convenient shade functionality.”
“We believe there is a great opportunity here for dealers and RV service centers to provide this kind of makeover in their aftermarket sales, and we are initiating a training program through which they can become Certified Shade Installers for United Shade products. The program is designed to take the complexity out of the process of ordering, installing and maintaining these shades. It’s a whole new revenue stream at their doorstep.”
