Motorized Blinds & Shades


Key Features & Benefits of Motorization

Window treatments are powered by a quiet, dependable, powerful motor & controlled with a convenient remote, wall switch or mobile device. They can bring tremendous ease, safety & time-saving comfort to your commercial space. Motorization can be paired with many types of both horizontal and vertical blinds & shades. Motorized window treatments put you in control, giving you simple convenience and peace of mind, particularly for buildings with children. Multi-channel remotes or mobile devices allow for easy, one-touch control of your shades, especially those hard-to-reach or large window coverings.


Additional Motorization Features

You can operate an individual shade or several simultaneously, from virtually anywhere in the building at anytime during the day, including on a pre-programmed schedule. In addition, you can raise or lower your shades completely, or easily program in an intermediate position, giving you the perfect amount of light. Motorized shades create a clean, modern look, without any clutter or distraction from lift cords.


Motorization Control Options

  • Virtual Cord Remote-  Operate an individual shade or several simultaneously.
  • Multi-channel Remote-  With up to 12 channels that can operate shades individually or in groups, the multi-channel remote offers flexible, powerful control with a large operational range.
  • Mobile Device or Tablet Control- Control and schedule your window treatments using an intuitive mobile device or tablet application. 
  • Building Automation Integration- Virtual cord shades use Z-Wave technology to integrate seamlessly with building automation systems.

Installation Services

Olson Backman, LLC  offers, and highly recommends, professional measuring and installation services to ensure your window treatments will fit just right, look perfect, and work properly with motorization. Often there is more to consider than simply the length and width of your window; for example, whether hardware should be installed with an inside or outside mount. Our specialists have the skills necessary to ensure the weight of the treatment is properly supported and that care is taken to protect woodwork and surrounding areas.  We also ensure that motorization is working properly and will help you with programming your remote or mobile device. And when done right the first time, motorized window treatments can last for decades.  



Safety is just as important as style when it comes to window treatments. Schools & buildings with children should take proper safety measures to prevent potentially serious window cord accidents. One of the best features of motorized shades is that no cords are used to operate the lift control of the shade, so this eliminates the concern of possible danger to children, as well as greatly reduces the opportunity for misuse or mistreatment.
