These large, battery-powered shades seamlessly integrate with the RadioRA 2 and HomeWorks QS whole-home control systems, while offering industry-leading battery performance and clean, elegant aesthetics. Sivoia QS Triathlon WIDR can also be used as a standalone solution, easily controlled using a remote or the Lutron mobile app.
The new Triathlon WIDR roller shades are available in sizes from 20 1/2” wide x 12” tall up to 12’ wide x 12’ tall, which provides greater functionality and fashion to homes with larger windows. These shades come in a wide variety of beautiful fabric colors and textures to meet the needs of larger spaces, such as family rooms or sunrooms – all controlled with a touch of a button. As an extension of the Triathlon family, the Triathlon WIDR roller shades boast several superior operational benefits, including:
- Superior Motion – Smooth motion for the entire travel of the shade, including stops and starts. Adjacent shades track together and maintain perfect alignment.
- Smallest Roll-Up Diameter - No more than a 3” roll up for a 12’ x 12’ shade – the smallest in the industry
- Redesigned Headrail – Sleek new headrail design for use without fascia in contemporary spaces
One of the most exciting advancements of Triathlon WIDR is that it is available with the new, unique Battery Boost option, which enhances battery life by up to 80 percent for any battery-powered roller shades that are 38” and wider. Lutron’s Battery Boost uses innovative alkaline balancing technology to improve the efficiency of standard D-cell batteries in an RF shading system-providing up to six years of performance. It is ideal for shades in hard to reach places and will reduce the number of callbacks for dealers.
“There is nothing like Battery Boost in the industry right now,” said Ed Blair, Vice-President and General Manager at Lutron Electronics. “Lutron extensively researched how batteries behave as part of a shading solution and has designed its systems to maximize battery life balanced while maintaining superior performance. The Battery Boost solution extends that battery life even further and is a game changer for everyone.”
