Coopersburg, PA (September 4, 2008) - Lutron Electronics Co., Inc. introduces the new Sivoia QED™ (Quiet Electronic Drive) skylight shade. Lutron's patented Sivoia QED technology is now available for skylight shades to reduce solar heat gain and minimize glare and UV penetration.

The skylight shade integrates with Lutron's full line of Sivoia QED window treatments and Lutron lighting control products to increase physical comfort and control the visual environment.

The Sivoia QED skylight shade is fully contained within an aluminum frame that mitigates the effects of out -of -square openings and other construction variances. Its tension system allows fabric panels to be kept parallel to skylight windows with a minimal sag at a variety of slopes. The Sivoia QED skylight shade also eliminates light gaps around fabric and maximizes the view when open. The frame may be surface mounted to a ceiling or recessed into a pocket while still allowing easy access to update the fabric. The product can ship fully -assembled from the factory, or can arrive as a kit and be assembled onsite.

"With the addition of the skylight shade to the Lutron family of roller shades, drapery track, and Roman shades, Lutron can provide quiet, precise control of daylight for a complete application," said David Weinstein, Vice President of Market Development for Lutron.

The Sivoia QED skylight shade is available in a large variety of sheer, privacy and blackout fabric families to suit any application and enhance décor for both commercial and residential applications.

The Sivoia QED family of controllable shading products includes roller shades, drapery track systems, and Roman shades. All systems operate with ultra -quiet precision, low -voltage drives, and offer many options for fabrics and controls. Sivoia QED allows designers, architects, builders, and homeowners to utilize a custom -built shading system with various configurations and fabrics that are suited to their specific application.
