Grapevine, Texas, April 12, 2024 Coulisse, the global leader in window covering solutions, is proud to announce its success at the 34th annual International Window Coverings Expo (IWCE) 2024, held in Grapevine, Texas. The premier trade show dedicated to window covering specialists, taking place on April 11 - 12, 2024, saw Coulisse receive six awards from the Window Covering Manufacturers Association (WCMA) including the prestigious Judges' Awards for its smart Motionblinds motors featuring built-in Eve technology with Matter and Thread.

Technological innovations for smarter living

Coulisse is honored to receive a grand total of six WCMA Product Awards for its technological innovations across various product categories, including Cellular & Pleated Shades, Drapery Hardware, Automation, and Vertical & Panel Tracks. Special mention goes to the Judges' Award winning Motionblinds motors with Eve technology, contributing to smarter and more sustainable living spaces, with their separately acclaimed Adaptive Shading feature. This innovation allows shades to intuitively adjust according to the sun, optimizing natural light and energy efficiency.

Jop Vos, Managing Director Americas of Coulisse: “In a world where everything's getting connected, we understand that window coverings play a pivotal role in saving energy, ensuring safety, and boosting well-being. As pioneers in our industry, we’re committed to transform both residential and commercial spaces with our Motionblinds smart technology. These awards recognise the contribution of our innovations to a smarter future.”

Eve Motionblinds with Matter-over-Thread technology

Coulisse is proud to showcase its latest Eve Motionblinds smart motors at the IWCE event. The motors offer plug-and-play interoperability to seamlessly cater to the needs of modern smart buildings. Powered by Eve technology and built-in Matter-over-Thread compatibility, the Eve Motionblinds range delivers an effortless user experience, ensuring 100% data privacy and interoperability across smart homes platforms, including Apple Home, Google Home, Samsung SmartThings, and Amazon Alexa.

New Smart Track for Motorized Drapes

Debuting for the first time in the Americas, the new smart track for motorized drapes is showcased at the Coulisse booth. Designed for easy fabrication, shipping, installation, and operation, it's the future of smart homes. Suitable for waved and pleated drapes the smart track features a minimalistic and modular design, facilitating easy transportation. The smart drapes concept includes wired and battery Eve Motionblinds motors, supporting the latest technologies Matter and Thread.

Prioritizing child safety

At Coulisse, child safety is of paramount importance. The company remains steadfastly committed to meeting the rigorous standards set by leading organizations such as WCMA, Health Canada, and CPSC. To this end, Coulisse offers a comprehensive range of child-safe solutions, including Twin Pull clutch-operated wands, motorization, and cordless designs. Among Coulisse's innovative solutions is the New Chain Safety Tensioner, designed specifically for honeycomb and roller shades. This tensioner is easy to assemble and ensures that your roller shade meets the new child safety standards, set to be implemented on June 1st, 2024.

Smart and safe honeycomb shades

Coulisse's smart motorized honeycomb top-down bottom-up system, awarded ‘Best New Technical Innovation’ in the category ‘Cellular & Pleated Shades’, sets a new child safety standard. A patented mechanical stopper in the head rail of the shade prevents the bottom rail from lifting the middle rail. As a result, cords in the system remain tensioned at any time and will not hang loose, so no loops occur. This technical innovation also prevents Coulisse’s motorized honeycomb shades from being damaged by the power of its smart built-in Motionblinds motors.

New smart showroom in Miami, Florida

Following IWCE, Coulisse is excited to announce the upcoming opening of its new smart showroom in Miami, Florida. This renewed facility will showcase the latest Motionblinds smart motors for roller shades, honeycombs, and drapes, seamlessly integrated with smart devices, alongside existing solutions. Visitors can also explore our latest range of shades and systems, offering hands-on demonstrations, training sessions, and valuable insights.
