Romatech™ Chain Drive Shades

The Romatech™ Chain Drive Roman Shade System is ideally suited for use with any typical sunscreening or blackout roller shade fabric. It can also be used with many drapery fabrics to make flat, pleated, and hobbled style Roman Shades.

The pictures below feature a chain drive pleated shade made with Sheerweave 5000 shade fabric. Other shade styles that can be adapted for use with the Romatech™ chain drive system are pictured in “other shade configurations”.

Romatech™ Chain Drive Roman Shades are identical to Romasafe™ Cordless Roman Shades except that they have a bead chain lift system instead of a cordless lift system. A side-mounted bead chain loop is used to operate the shade (chains must be installed with a Cord Safety Standard compliant tension device).

The lift bands wind up into an elegant, covered cassette.

Romatech™ Band Guides

The patent-pending Romatech™ band guides are made from clear polycarbonate and self-align in the back channels of the aluminum Shade Battens.

In particular, they must comply with the Labeling and Operational Tag Requirements and the Bead Chain Tension Devise Requirements specified in the Standard.
