Insolroll Window Shading Systems has introduced Oasis Patio Shades Driven by Lutron, bringing best-in-class motorized patio shades to the luxury home market. These high-end patio shades bring advanced control to outdoor spaces by controlling heat, UV rays, and glare, as well as eliminating pesky insects and even providing protection from wayward golf balls. Until now, a patio shading system capable of integrating with Lutron’s Homeworks QS and RadioRa 2 lighting control systems did not exist. Insolroll will launch this luxury line of Oasis Patio Shades Driven by Lutron at CEDIA 2016 in Dallas.

“Our alliance with Lutron fills a void in the market for projects desiring patio shading and insect protection with full function Lutron control,” says Rick Pease of Insolroll. “This technical alliance puts Lutron patented motor drives inside Oasis Patio Shade and Retractable Insect Screen products. Shades can be seamlessly controlled through a Lutron system, or individually via the Lutron Pico wireless remote. Now homeowners can enjoy their outdoor living spaces to the fullest, with all the comfort, convenience, and personalization offered by Lutron control.”

With high-end outdoor living spaces trending, spectacular outdoor kitchens, dining areas, and media spaces have become a key component of residential construction projects. Providing comfort and sun control, Oasis Patio Shades have grown significantly over the past three decades, as a result of weather conditions and insect infestations. Insolroll aims to meet the demand for today’s luxurious patio areas by designing Oasis Patio Shades to be either retrofitted or built directly into the structure during new construction. Insolroll is introducing two Oasis Shade Systems Driven by Lutron:

The Oasis 2800 Patio Sun Shades are Insolroll’s most popular system. Available in a range of solar screen fabrics, they feature weaves from 1 to 10 percent open to accommodate various sun exposures and applications. The system includes a fully enclosed extruded aluminum headbox and a choice of cable guide or track system to provide sway control in breezy conditions. Translucent and waterproof fabric options provide privacy and a higher level of protection from the elements. Oasis 2800 Patio Sun Shades Driven by Lutron will be available for order on October 1, 2016.

Oasis 2900 Retractable Insect Screens provide all the benefits of the 2800 system, with the added feature that the edges of the fabric are zipper-captured in a side channel. This design element provides protection from mosquitoes and the illnesses they can transmit, and a system that is sturdier in windy conditions. When solar screen or waterproof fabrics are chosen, the system creates an enclosed area that will protect occupants and furnishings from harsh weather. Oasis 2900 Retractable Insect Screens Driven by Lutron will be available in early 2017.
