Nice has launched Sun Shades by Nice, the company’s first-ever line of custom smart sun shades.

Sun Shades by Nice provides design options with the “same simple, flexible integration that installers have come to love.” Nice says the line is highly customizable with options for indoor and outdoor use.

The range of sun shades for interior needs includes open roll, cassette, fascia and pocket mounting options, as well as options for dual roller and total blackout shade. Offerings are available for more complex needs, such as skylights, bottom-up applications commonly used in bedrooms, and peaked or angled windows. The motors by Nice also enable more options for windows up to 18 feet.

Additionally, the line includes exterior options. With track-guided and cable-guided solutions for both vertical and horizontal shading needs, Sun Shades by Nice “covers most needs for standard exterior window coverings while preventing heat transfer from solar radiation, and drastically improving temperature control and energy use.”

Sun Shades by Nice are powered by Nice tubular motors, which include hembar alignment and can uniquely detect objects in both up and down directions. Nice tubular motors come in a wide variety including AC, DC and battery as well as both wired and RF, and are currently available to OEM fabrication partners. When paired with a Nice Home Management System, the discovery and setup functionality in the Nice Configurator application delivers “simple, flexible installation for the home technology professional.”

The launch of Sun Shades by Nice follows a series of company product announcements, including the Home Management OS 8.8 Software Upgrade for all Nice/ELAN Control Systems, the HR40 Multifunction Smart Home Remote and DC-12 IP Smart DC Power Manager, that underscore the company’s position as a leader in Home Management solutions.
