How wide can a motorized roller shade be?
At our company, we offer both rechargeable wire-free motors with internal lithium batteries and hard-wired electric motors. While our heavy-duty rechargeable motors can lift shades up to 147 inches wide by 120 inches tall, our electric motors are even stronger and can handle shades up to 175 inches wide.

This makes them an ideal choice for oversized shades or hard-to-reach windows that require a little extra power. However, it’s important to note that electric motors do require a dedicated power source, so they won’t be operable in the event of a power outage.

How wide can a motorized zebra shade be?
The maximum width of a zebra shade depends on the width of the fabric used. Some zebra shade fabrics are 110 inches wide, which means the maximum width of the shade would be 111 inches. This ensures that the fabric can move smoothly without any issues.

However, it’s important to keep in mind that the width of the shade can also be affected by other factors, such as the size and weight of the shade itself and the bottom rail.

This type of motor requires an external battery that can be charged using a wall charger.

  2. Safety: Motorized shades eliminate the need for cords or chains, which can pose a risk of entanglement or strangulation, particularly for children and pets.

4. Integration: Motorized shades can be integrated with smart home systems, allowing you to control them remotely via a smartphone or other internet-connected device.

5. Power sources: Motorized shades can be powered by rechargeable or hardwired electric motors. Rechargeable motors offer flexibility in installation and can be charged using a standard wall outlet. Hardwired motors are more powerful and ideal for larger shades or windows.

By considering these factors, homeowners can make an informed decision about whether motorized shades are the right choice for their needs and lifestyle.

Are motorized shades reliable?

We only work with liable brands. The quality of the motor is crucial for the performance of motorized shades.

Read_More


At our company, we use only the finest motors from trusted manufacturers such as Somfy and Rollease, which come with a five-year warranty for added peace of mind. It is important to be cautious of companies that offer cheaper, off-brand motors or those imported from China, as they may not meet the same quality standards and could lead to issues in the long term.

Do motorized shades need an outlet?
When it comes to motorized shades, the size and placement of the shades can impact the type of motor needed. For larger or higher shades, it may be necessary to install an outlet for a hardwired motor.

Read_More

However, if the shades are accessible by ladder or in smaller sizes, a rechargeable motor can be a convenient option. Our heavy-duty rechargeable motors are capable of lifting shades up to 147 inches wide and 110 inches tall, making them suitable for most openings.

What are the advantages and disadvantages of rechargeable motors and electric motors for shades?

When it comes to choosing between rechargeable and electric motors for your motorized shades, there are several factors to consider. Rechargeable motors are a popular choice as they are completely wire-free and operate on a built-in lithium-ion battery that requires minimal maintenance.

Read_More

These motors are less expensive than electric motors and eliminate the need for any electrical work, making them an easy and convenient option for most homeowners.
Electric motors, on the other hand, are hardwired and require an electrician to run the wiring through the walls, unless you don’t mind visible cords. This makes them a more complex installation and may require additional painting work after the installation is complete. However, electric motors are better suited for very large shades that rechargeable motors may struggle to lift, or for very tall windows that may be out of reach for a rechargeable motor.

It’s important to carefully consider your specific needs and preferences when deciding between rechargeable and electric motors for your motorized shades. Our team of experts can help you make the right choice and ensure a seamless installation process .

How to recharge a rechargeable motor?
To ensure that your motorized shades always have power, it is crucial to know how to properly recharge the built-in battery. Here are the steps you need to follow:

Read_More

  1. Connect the charger to a wall outlet.
  2. Locate the motor head, which is typically positioned on the right or left side of the shade tube. You should see a black and white (sometimes white) wire coming out of the motor head.
  3. Connect the charger cord to the black and white wire in the motor head, just as you would connect a phone charger.
  4. Allow the shades to charge for 6-7 hours or overnight.

You can easily find instructional videos on YouTube that demonstrate how to recharge your motorized shade’s built-in battery.

What brands of motors do you carry?
At our company, we use motors exclusively from reputable manufacturers such as Somfy and Rollease. These motors are known for their high quality and reliability, and come backed by an impressive warranty of up to 5 years. You can trust that our motorized shades are built to last and are supported by top-of-the-line components.
Rollease vs. Somfy? ( our experience and opinion) we love both.
As an expert in the field of motorized shades, I typically recommend Somfy over Rollease if both options are available, especially if there are backorders. Somfy has been in the business for a longer time and has a better reputation for keeping their motors in stock. Both Somfy and Rollease offer a 5-year warranty on their motors and are known for their reliability.

When it comes to noise level, both companies offer similar levels of noise. However, Somfy has an advantage with their ultra-quiet technology for both electric and rechargeable motors. On the other hand, Rollease’s U.S.-made remotes have a better aesthetic appearance, but they are more prone to damage if they are dropped.

Somfy remotes have better functionality for operating multiple shades in groups, but you need free channels to use this feature. For example, if you have a 16-channel Somfy remote and some channels are unused, you can group several shades together without affecting the other shades. This feature may not be available on Rollease remotes.

Rollease remotes have a unique feature that allows you to lock the access to settings, which is not available on Somfy remotes. With Somfy, accidental changes to the settings or limits may occur if someone sits on the remote.

Both motors come in a range of sizes that can operate shades of varying sizes. Rollease has a slight advantage over Somfy when it comes to larger sizes, particularly if the motor is rechargeable and the shades are very wide (up to 147 inches).

Additionally, Rollease offers a convenient feature on their 16-channel remote that allows you to stop all shades at the same height without pressing the stop button. This feature is not available on Somfy remotes and is extremely nice if all shades at the same length.

While both companies offer a favorite position feature, Rollease has the advantage of being able to level all shades at any point if they are the same length but is mainly best if all shades are same length. Somfy, on the other hand, does not offer this feature but I like that with somfy remote you press the stop for 1/2 a second and with Rollease you need to hold it for over 2 seconds so Somfy is better on this.

The Rollease 16-channel remote is more affordable than the Somfy 16-channel remote by more than $120, but the Somfy remote has a more professional appearance and can move shades in groups if not all channels are used.

Finally, while the Rollease remote battery needs to be replaced more frequently, it is easy to replace, whereas the Somfy remote battery is harder to replace but has a longer lifespan. Somfy Rechargeable 30mm motors also have a button that allows you to control the shades without using the remote control, which is not available on Rollease motors. Both companies use a special charger to charge their motors, but the Rollease charger comes with a longer cord than the Somfy charger, which may eliminate the need for an extension cord.
