Shade and screen manufacturer Screen Innovations (SI) has launched its new and improved Nano 2 motorized shading cassette.
SI says the Nano 2 solution adds features dealers have asked for while maintaining the sleek, modern aesthetic that has made the Nano motorized shading line popular among integrators, designers and end-users.
The Nano 2’s removable front cover provides easy access to the motors, technology, and shading fabric inside the cassette. Leveling adjustments, maintenance and fabric swaps during a remodel, for example, are handled easily, without detaching the cassette from the window, SI notes.
Additionally, SI’s Nano 2 motor and power and control cables can be removed from the mounted shading cassette for service. Other refinements enable smoother, quieter lifting and lowering of the shade and quicker programming and integration with other devices and systems via SI’s new 485 motor interface, according to the company.
“This product refresh demonstrates SI’s commitment to evolving and advancing its motorized shading solutions to meet the needs of integrators, as well as designers, architects and window covering specialists,” says SI CEO Ryan Gustafson.
“We focused on the technology inside — and the cosmetics outside — to create a one-of-a-kind product that gives our dealers an edge when bidding and completing projects. At the same time, it helps position SI as a key player in the window fashion industry.”
The Nano 2’s feature set is built into SI’s 275 cassette, soon followed by its larger 375, 475, and Duo models. SI adds that Nano 2 shades look identical to the company’s original Nano cassette, providing a clean, consistent aesthetic in projects where both versions are employed.
