Romatech Chain Drive Roman Shades are identical to Romasafe Cordless Shades except that they use a bead chain lift system to operate the shade. Chains are provided with a tension device for child safety. The tension device must be installed for the shades to operate properly. 

Romatech Chain Drive Shades use  sleek aluminum pleat battens, clear polycarbonate band guides, and clear polyester bands lift the shades into neat folds.

The lift bands wind up into an elegant, covered cassette.

Romatech Chain Drive Shades offer:

* Unlimited pleat spacing options.
* Pleats without "pinpricks of light" stitch lines.
* A versatile, easy to operate bead chain lift system - precisely matched to the size and weight of the shade.
* Easy, snap-up installation.

The patent-pending Romatech
 band guides are made from clear polycarbonate and self-align in the back channels of the Romatech Shade Battens.

The cassette is a sturdy aluminum extrusion about 3" deep and 3.5" high. The shade fabric wraps around the front to cover the cassette.

Mounting Dimensions

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, Romasafe Cordless Shades, Motorized Shades, or Panel Track Shades.
