Lutron Electronics Introduces New Features

for Sivoia Drapery Track, Increasing Capability,
Providing Convenience

Coopersburg, PA (September 4, 2008) - Lutron Electronics announces the introduction of several new features to its Sivoia drapery track systems, including Track Splicing and a Manual Open carrier. These new features allow for longer standard track lengths, increased convenience in transportation of tracks to and on the job site, and manual open ability of drapes.

The new Track Splicing feature utilizes a Splice Bar that connects two track lengths together simply with a set of Lutron -supplied screws. It is simple to connect and increase the maximum length for drapery tracks - now up to 30' in length with a single drive unit. This new feature also allows for longer tracks to be shipped in two to three pieces, providing convenience to the installer with shorter shipping packages for easy movement of the tracks around the job site.

The new tracks also offer Manual Open option on their Sivoia drapery tracks, allowing them to open their drapes even when the power goes out. When a user pulls on the drape manually, it will release from the motorized portion of the system and move freely between where it released and the end of the track.

The Manual Open not only provides the user with convenience, but can also help to prevent damage to the track if an unfamiliar user pulls on the drape, mistaking it for a manual track.

"Lutron is expanding its drapery track offerings to meet the needs of the marketplace and offer end -users options to meet their design and lifestyle needs," states David Weinstein, Vice -President of Market Development at Lutron. "These new features, combined with the quality performance of Sivoia drapery track systems, give customers a greatly expanded offering in terms of convenience, flexibility and increased system capability."

Sivoia drapery track systems offer the same quiet, elegant and precise movement as the rest of the Sivoia QED and Sivoia QS families, including programmable stop points and simple low -voltage installation. They also use the same wiring connector and intuitive keypad as Sivoia QED and Sivoia QS roller shades, respectively. Sivoia drapery track systems also allow for the creation of custom drapes through the use of customer -supplied, pinch -pleated or ripple -fold material.
