Budget Blinds Introduces Next Generation Motorized Shades

Homeowners to benefit from innovative virtual cord signature series.

Orange, CA August 20, 2015


Budget Blinds, the largest window coverings franchise in North America with over 1,000 territories, announced today that it will now feature Virtual Cord motorized shades through their Signature Series private label program, with Springs Window Fashions as the exclusive manufacturer. Budget Blinds is now offering the Virtual Cord technology through their cellular honeycomb shades offered through Signature Series®. The Virtual Cord technology will be made available through additional Budget Blinds products in fall 2015.

Virtual Cord motorized shades provide homeowners convenience for those hard to reach window coverings or multiple window coverings. They also help with privacy, glare control and energy savings, while providing a safer alternative to accessible cords, which can pose hazards to small children.

Virtual Cord comes in larger and narrower shades which contain simple, intuitive control and operation with a new protocol that is reliable and intelligent. The innovative technology features a clean design with integrated antenna, powered with batteries or plug-in transformer with LED feedback on motor and controls. Optional single-channel control or group control are both available, making it easy to control multiple window coverings at the same time.

"We are very excited to offer this next generation technology to our Budget Blinds franchisees and customers," said Chad Hallock, CEO and co-founder of Budget Blinds. "The convenience, simplicity and intelligence of Virtual Cord motorized shades are a great addition to the Budget Blinds line of window coverings."

Budget Blinds will feature a motorization sale event with the Virtual Cord product Aug. 31 - Nov. 1, 2015. Consumers can save 20 percent on selected Signature Series® window coverings, and during the month of Oct. 2015, receive a Visa gift card for up to $250.
