Lutron Unveils WireFree,
Exposed-Roller
Shade Solution
New Palladiom automated shading
system employs battery-powered
shades and includes hembar-styled
bottom rail to assist installation.
By Jason Knott
LUTRON ELECTRONICS is
once again staying ahead of
the curve in the automated
shades market with its new
Lutron Palladiom Wire-Free
Shading System, which leverages
the major growth trends
of exposed roller shades and
battery-powered shades.
The Palladiom Wire-Free
Shading System is a beautiful,
exposed roller shade
with a minimal profile that is
completely wire-free, giving
integrators the ability to
bring a sleek industrial design
product that offers them
installation flexibility.
Lutron first introduced
quiet motorized shades
suitable for interior windows
to the custom installation
market back in the 1990s
with its Sivoia line. In 2017,
the Coopersburg, Pa.-based
company debuted its Palladiom
exposed shade aesthetic
as a wired solution.
Eliminating the need for
pre-wiring allows this versatile
shade to be installed
at any point in a project's

lifecycle - even after
construction is complete,
explains Margaret Block,
product manager for motorized
shades at Lutron. She
notes that with the wireless,
exposed roller shade option,
integrators will no longer
necessarily be shut out from
adding shades to a project
because there are no soffits
or pockets built into the
design of the home to hide
the shades, and because the
walls have already been drywalled
or plastered without
prewiring in place.
" Our goal is to provide our
customers with flexible shading
solutions that combine
superior technology with the
reliable performance that
integrators have come to expect
from Lutron, " says Sam
Chambers, senior director
- Residential Systems. " The
Palladiom Wire-Free Shading
System combines that design-centric
aesthetic with
the simplicity of wire-free
operation making it easier
than ever to bring beautiful
Lutron says the Palladiom
Wire-Free Shading
System uses D-cell
batteries and can cover
windows up to 12 x 12
feet (wide x tall).
daylight control to any home
at any time. "
The Palladiom Wire-Free
Shading System runs on
Active Energy Optimization,
Lutron's new patent-pending
battery management architecture
designed to optimize
the delicate balance of efficiency
and power density in
traditional alkaline batteries
to extend battery lifetime.
This system uses no more
than six D-cell batteries
while maintaining a battery
life of three to five years.
" Maintaining the simple
design of Palladiom shades
with battery-powered
architecture required many
electronic and mechanical
breakthroughs, " says Block.
" Our goal was simplicity in
both design and function.
This includes replaceable
batteries that are completely
concealed within the shade,
but accessible when needed,
an integrated RF antenna for
wireless communication, and
a remarkably efficient drive
that can run longer on fewer
batteries. These features
minimize challenges for installers
and designers alike. "
The solution's clean,
minimal profile is designed
to flex to match any décor,
occupies no more than 3¼
inches of vertical space and
covers windows up to 12 feet
wide x 12 feet tall. Shade
brackets are offered in seven
hand-finished materials and
coordinate with Palladiom
wired shade hardware, keypads
and thermostats
The shade has the exclusive
Palladiom Bottom Rail,
a streamlined hembar style
designed to geometrically
align with the shape of the
bracket, and in matching
finishes. Mounting options
accommodate new or existing
windows, with brackets
designed for wall, ceiling and
jamb mount applications.
