Fauxwood Blinds

Fauxwood blinds are a great example of a product that combines the best of both worlds. They offer the beauty of natural wood with many attributes only found in their lighter long-wearing material. Fauxwood meets commercial flame-retardant requirements and offers much more. Its lighter weight and warp-free balance make Fauxwood ideal for smooth motorized applications where patients require quiet and in hard-to-reach areas where light control is essential.

These beautiful blinds are impervious to dampness, found around pools and baths, and strong Western sun exposure. Fauxwood blinds are no longer "the lesser alternative." Available in two slat widths and boasting four attractive finishes, they often offer the only total solution.

As standard a 3.5” Crown FR Valance complements the blind color and finish while covering the headrail and mounting bracket. Optionally select the 5.5” Ultra Crown FR Valance for those larger windows and spaces. Rich with texture and deep in colors, our Fauxwood collection leads the pack in style, durability, and quality.
Motorized blinds combine natural beauty with enhanced functionality and offer an excellent solution to control natural light. With the best tilting resolution control in the industry, a single blind, or a group of blinds can be controlled from a single remote and all align perfectly.

Ideal for hard to reach areas requiring light control, or scenarios that need a schedule to adjust the blinds automatically in a busy restraint environment, motorized tile motors combined with a wide array of control devices give you the options your business requires.

Quiet Operation
Solutions for motorized blinds include our premium offering of ultra-quiet operation ideal for patient and guest room settings.

Individual & Group Control
Motorized blinds offer flexibility so that your blinds operate according to your needs. Motorized blinds can be operated individually, together as a group or a combination of both options…instantly.

Battery Option
A completely wireless option that is battery-powered and eliminates the need for any wiring. Add an optional Solar Pack and create a maintenance-free and energy efficient solution!

Denser and thus heavier than tradition wood blinds, FR Fauxwood blinds are built with top of the line components to best withstand the rigors of commercial use. This includes heavy-duty metal and plastic components throughout. The Cord Tilter has a metal gear enabling a stronger and smoother rotation. When Wand Controls are selected, we equip the headrail with a Wand Tilting mechanism with a metal gear and stem making it the strongest tilter in the industry.
