Webinar: Living in a Material World

July 16, 2020 @ 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm EDT

Presentation Description:

This webinar will explore how to use material properties and characteristics to specify roller shade fabrics for a variety of residential applications. The presentation will cover how to thoughtfully select roller shade fabrics for areas of a home with specific needs related to an occupant’s comfort and well-being, such as damp environments, sleeping spaces, and areas with acoustic requirements. It will also dive deeper into understanding colour, structure, and weave of a shade fabric as well as how material affects an automated shade’s ability to protect interior finishes and spaces.

Lutron Electronics Canada Co. will draw one lucky attendee to win a Caseta kit including a Pico remote and plug in dimmer, following the webinar.
