Our Newest Cord Shroud for Shades

Rowley® Company is proud to share the newest 
innovation in cord shrouds for soft shades.

Introducing Sure-Shade™ Encased Lift Cord Shroud Tube.  This new cord shroud combines a knitted tube with lift cord.  It is easier to tack to the shade, stacks tighter and is less noticeable.
The new cord shroud tube encases the lifting cord, keeping it from being 
pulled out and away from the back of the shade.  
This prevents a hazardous cord loop from being formed. 
Unique to our cord shroud tube is a small tacking-strip, which allows you to sew the tube directly to the shade.  No more columns of rings!  This is quite a time saver. Simply tack the shroud tube to the shade every 8" or less and add one shade ring at the bottom to tie off the cord.  At the top, slip the cord from the tube and thread it into the system.
The Encased Lift Cord Shroud Tube has a small sewing strip which is hand-tacked to the shade.  
This keeps the knitted tube stable and secure with no worries of the tube unraveling.
At the top of the shade, the cord is fished out of the tube and threaded into the lift system.  
The EZ-Rig™ shade system is shown here.

Combined with our broad selection of shade operating systems, workrooms now have endless options for meeting the 2010 ANSI Standards for Corded Window Coverings and can be used for any shade style such as plain or ribbed Roman shades, relaxed Roman shades, balloon shades and for creating Italian stringing in draperies.

Use cord shrouds when making styles that incorporate Italian stringing, like this pretty, swagged treatment.

The new Sure-Shade™ Encased Lift Cord Shroud Tube is patent-pending, independently tested and approved and competitively priced.  Currently available in white, with .9 or 1.4mm lift cord or without lift cord for workrooms that wish to thread their own cord into the tube. Coming soon we will offer the cord shroud tube in  ivory, khaki and medium brown to match popular lining and sheer colors.
