Lutron Electronics Introduces Larger, Battery-Powered Shading Solution With Sivoia QS Triathlon WIDR Roller Shades

lutron-sivoia-1015Lutron Electronics today announced the Sivoia QS Triathlon WIDR roller shades. These large, battery-powered shades are designed to integrate with the RadioRA 2 and HomeWorks QS whole-home control systems. Sivoia QS Triathlon WIDR can also be used as a standalone solution, easily controlled using a remote or the Lutron mobile app.

The new Triathlon WIDR roller shades are available in sizes from 20 1/2” wide x 12” tall up to 12’ wide x 12’ tall, which provides greater functionality and fashion to homes with larger windows. These shades come in a wide variety of beautiful fabric colors and textures to meet the needs of larger spaces, such as family rooms or sunrooms – all controlled with a touch of a button. As an extension of the Triathlon family, the Triathlon WIDR roller shades boast several superior operational benefits, including:

  • Superior Motion — Smooth motion for the entire travel of the shade, including stops and starts.
  • Adjacent shades track together and maintain perfect alignment.
  • Smallest Roll-Up Diameter — No more than a 3” roll up for a 12’ x 12’ shade – the smallest in the industry
  • Redesigned Headrail — Sleek new headrail design for use without fascia in contemporary spaces

One of the unique features of the Triathlon WIDR is that it is available with a Battery Boost option, which Lutron claims enhances battery life by up to 80 percent for any battery-powered roller shades that are 38” and wider. Lutron’s Battery Boost uses alkaline balancing technology to improve the efficiency of standard D-cell batteries in an RF shading system- providing up to six years of performance. It is ideal for shades in hard to reach places and will reduce the number of callbacks for dealers.
