Roller 20™ Shade System Sized Just Right for Homes


Coopersburg, PA (September 4, 2008 ) - Lutron Electronics Co., Inc. is extending the reach of its signature Sivoia QED® shading technology into homes with the introduction of the Sivoia QED Roller 20™ shade system.

The new Roller 20 shade system offers all of the benefits of Lutron's patented Sivoia QED technology -including quiet, precision movement of shades -but it also has an ultra -slim profile (1.25") and narrow width, making it perfectly suited for mounting within most, smaller residential window frames.

With this product addition, homeowners can blend the most advanced, digitally controllable shading technology seamlessly into the design of their homes.

"This is a noteworthy moment for residential design and convenience," said David Weinstein, Vice -President of Market Development at Lutron. "With the Sivoia QED Roller 20 shade system, homeowners can now enjoy the unique advantages of Sivoia QED technology that they can't get from any other shading system."

Lutron's new Roller 20 shading system enhances a home's spaces while providing convenient daylight control at the touch of a button. The elegantly styled keypads and
controls give users intuitive control of the shades. Roller 20 is available in a variety of fabric options to enhance a home's décor.

The key to this addition to Lutron's Sivoia QED product line is its small size, made possible with the inclusion of a tube that has a diameter measuring only 1.25 inches, and a smaller drive that allows the shades to be smaller in width (a minimum of 18.5 inches). Roller 20 is the world's smallest precision controllable shading system.
