Edge Curling
All roller shades are susceptible to some degree of edge curling. Edge curling can be caused by variations in temperature or humidity between the window and the room. We have selected shade  materials that are soft and stable in order to minimize edge curling. We cannot, however, guarantee that your shades will not show some degree of curling.

Optional Features:

Scalloped and Trimmed Hems
Hems can be finished with:

Basic Scallops

Shade Topper Valances. 

Shade Toppers are designed for use with all Romanzia Shades and are available in the same variety of hem styles pictured for shade hems above. They feature our unique fused lining process for a neatly tailored appearance. Shade Toppers attach to a mounting board (included) with hook and loop fasteners. Shade toppers should be ordered with a face width at least ½” wider than the width of the shade they cover.

Stationary Panels
Flat Panels of shade fabric are fastened to a wood headrail. Bottom hem is turned with a hidden hem bar and hangs free. Deduct 10% from the standard shade price. Hook and Loop attachment is optional - add $5 per foot of width for hook and loop attachment.

Window Covering Cord Safety Alert

  • Young children can STRANGLE in cord and bead chain loops. They can also wrap cords and bead chains around their necks and STRANGLE.
  • Always keep cords and bead chain loops out of children's reach.
  • Move cribs, playpens, and other furniture away from cords and bead chains. Children can climb furniture to get to cords and bead chain loops.
  • Attach bead chain loop tension devise to window casing, wall or floor. This can prevent children from pulling cords and bead chains around their necks. Fasteners provided with the tension devise may not be appropriate for all mounting surfaces. Use appropriate anchors for the mounting surface conditions.

Please be aware that bead chain control loops present a strangulation hazard, particularly to young children.

To address this important issue, the window covering industry has adapted the American National Standard for Safety of Corded Window Covering Products. The latest version of that Standard, ANSI/WCMA A100.1-2014, is now in effect.

Romanzia has always taken product safety seriously and we have always done our best to meet or exceed all Industry Safety Standards including product testing, product labeling and tagging, product education, and the use of accessories like bead chain tension devises that are compliant to the Standard.

All Romanzia products that are made to be operated with a bead chain control loop are packaged with a tension devise that is compliant with the latest American National Standard for Safety of Corded Window Covering Products. Before any product with a bead chain control loop is shipped, a tension devise is attached to the bead chain in such a way that "unless properly installed or altered from the shipped condition with a sequential process or tools, it prevents the window covering from operating".

When the product is installed, the tension devise MUST be properly installed in order to mitigate the strangulation hazard. If the product is installed by a window covering professional or anyone other than the end user, all warning tags and product warning labels MUST remain on the product for the end-user to read and understand. 

For complete safety, parents and caregivers should consider cordless window coverings alternatives like our Spring Roller Shades, Romatech Cordless Shades, Motorized Shades, or Panel Track Shades.
