Romatech Chain Drive Roman Shades use a bead chain lift system to raise and lower the shade. Chains are provided with a tension device for child safety. The tension device must be installed for the shades to operate properly.

Sleek, miniature pleat battens, band guides, and clear polyester bands are used to lift the shades into neat folds.
• Back pleat spacing is unlimited.
• Pleats without pinpricks of light.
• Manual Shades up to 96" wide. Motorized up to 192" wide.
• A wide range of motorization options including battery powered, solar powered, plug & play 110 Volt AC, and wired low voltage. Motorized Romasafe Shades have tube-reel lift systems powered with the same motors that are used for roller shades.
• Standard Turned & Sewn Bottom Hem with enclosed weight. Exposed and Covered Baserails are optional.
• Custom made in Chetek, Wisconsin USA.
The patent-pending cassette positions the shade close to the window while allowing the lift bands efficient access to the lift mechanism.

The shade fabric wraps around to cover the front of the cassette.

Universal spring clip brackets allow easy, snap-on installation.

Chain Drive Roman Shades with Conventional Wood Headrails

Romasafe Chain Drive Roman Shades are also available with conventional wood headrails. All other features are the same.

Wood headrails can only be mounted behind the shade - with the shade falling straight down from the front edge of the headrail.

Wood headrails for chain drive shades are 2" - 3 5/8" deep depending on the size of the shade.

Romatech Shades with wood headrails can also be motorized. Motorized wood headrails are 2" - 3 1/2" deep depending on the size of the shade and motorized lift system.

All shades are custom made in Chetek, Wisconsin USA.

The patent-pending band guides are made from clear virgin polycarbonate and self-align in the back channels of the pleat battens.

Lift bands are crystal clear and highly UV resistant.

The Romatech Compact Headrail is now available. Click here.
Compact headrails can be fitted with a chain drive band lift system or a motorized band lift system.
