PENSACOLA, Fla. August 7, 2014 – QMotion Advanced Shading Systems recently received four Window Covering Manufacturers Association Awards. The annual awards recognize the best of the window covering industry's products and merchandising programs.

The WCMA judges select products based on technical achievements and breakout designs across categories that include cellular shades; drapery hardware; "green" products; motorization; Roman, roller, and pleated shades; shadings and sheers; shutters; specialty applications; verticals and panel tracks and wood and faux wood blinds.

"We're thrilled to be recognized by the design community experts as having the most technologically advanced and stylish products," said Gene Demestre, QMotion's vice president of sales and marketing. "Our team is dedicated to leading the way with advancements that enhance our customers' experience with our motorized window treatments."

In the Cellular Shades category, QMotion was recognized for best new technical enhancement with its Honeycomb Shades product collection, which provides superior insulation from heat and cold while enhancing the décor of any room. Unlike other motorized solutions, there are no exposed wires and battery packs.

Because all of QMotion honeycomb shades are spring counterbalanced, the motors move very easily and quietly. Automated honeycomb shades can be operated by remote control, smart phone/tablet or by hand with QMotion's patented manual override feature.

QMotion received three awards in the Motorization category. QMotion's Venetian Blinds Collection, available this fall, was recognized for best technical innovation. QMotion automated venetian blinds are the only motorized blinds that not only have the tilt function operated by remote control, but also can be raised and lowered with the remote. The venetian blinds are quiet and fully functional at larger sizes, as much as 7' x 8', all with battery power.

Also in the Motorization category, QMotion's recently released Motorized Drapery Rods received two awards -? the best new style concept award and the most innovative overall award. QMotion's Motorized Drapery Rod collection is the first and only trackless motorized drapery rod in the industry. The real beauty of QMotion's innovative new product is what you don't notice-removing the external motors and wires and placing a battery operated motor inside the rod itself. The Motorized Drapery Rod collection offers six beautifully crafted finishes and six popular finial options.
