Custom Widths Now Available

NEW! For a small surcharge, the Elite Series can now be custom cut to any size you need from 29" to 120" inches wide. The height is 96" and cannot be adjusted, However, you do not have to roll your shade down completely; excess fabric can remain rolled up inside the cassette enclosure.

To order the correct valance width, simply measure the area you want the fabric to cover and then add 1.125 (1-1/8") to the width e.g., if the fabric width you require is 56" + 1.125, the valance width would then become 57-1/8". At this point you should check to make sure that the mounting surface is wide enough for the new valance width.

On the ordering page - select the window the stock width under "Your Window Size" that is greater than, but closest to the new valance width. In the example above you would select 72". Then, under "Options and Upgrades" select "custom size" on the "Stock of Custom Size" drop-down menu and then 57-1/8" on the "Valance Width" drop-down. That's it - it's as easy as that.

Note: Custom cut-downs change the production time from 1-3 business to 5-7 business days.
