Our displays feature the latest in solar fabrics and motorized custom soft treatments. Experience our complete display of lighting controls covering everything from dimmers to whole house systems.

Window covering safety is a shared responsibility among manufacturers, distributors, retailers and consumers. By manufacturing and sourcing only products that comply with the new Safety Standards, we can all do our part to promote safety. This publication is intended to raise awareness of the current window coverings Safety Standards.

Go Cordless!


The Consumer Protection Agency has listed new standards for safe window treatments to reduce the dangers associated with corded window treatments to children. Though Specialty offers retro fixes for all corded treatments to accommodate these new standards we believe the best answer is to eliminate operating cords totally using motorization. Don't just settle on a quick fix for your corded window treatments. Specialty manufactures and offers automated systems that lift and roll up shades, operate drapes and blinds, and that can eliminate the need for hazardous cords, thus removing the danger at the source.
