Window Shade System Enables Heavier Lifting
Mecho, a manufacturer of commercial window coverings, introduces the Mecho/5x, a new design in manual shade lift technology. The Mecho/5x improves upon the patented and commercial shading industry standard, Mecho 5.
The innovative Mecho/5x allows users to lift larger and heavier window shades with minimal effort. The new system can smoothly and effortlessly lift large and multi-banded shades, up to 288” wide and 120” tall.
Mecho/5x improves the design aesthetic of a buildings’ façade by allowing greater lengths of the shading system to be aligned. Mecho/5x controls larger shades or multi-band shades with one control, ensuring they are at a consistent height and multiple chain pulls are eliminated.
Mecho/5x features a re-engineered chain pull which adds a greater angle of pull for increased versatility when there are furnishings, workspaces or other objects in front of a window.
Mecho/5x is the only complete hardware-and-shadecloth system with a twenty-five-year
Limited Warranty including 100 percent replacement and no depreciation over the life of the warranty. When installed with EcoVeil, EcoVeil Sheer, or AcoustiVeil shadecloth, the Mecho/5x is the only complete window-shading system with Cradle to Cradle BronzeTM certification.
