Introducing the Mecho®/5x Manual Shade Lift

Posted January 16, 2019

Long Island City, NY – ​January 16, 2019 – Mecho, the global leader in commercial window coverings, introduces the Mecho/5x, a revolutionary new design in manual shade lift technology that allows a user to lift larger and heavier window shades with no additional effort.

The Mecho/5x is the ideal manual lift mechanism for large and multi-banded shades up to 288” wide and 120” tall. The Mecho/5x not only makes lifting large shades easier, it preserves building aesthetics by ensuring mul​ti-band shades are at a consistent height and multiple chain pulls are eliminated.

The Mecho/5x also features a re-engineered chain pull which adds a greater angle of pull for increased versatility when there are furnishings or other objects in front of a window.

Mecho/5x is the only complete hardware-and-shadecloth system with a twenty-five-year Limited Warranty including 100% replacement and no depreciation over the life of the warranty. When installed with EcoVeil®, EcoVeil Sheer, or AcoustiVeil shadecloth, the Mecho/5x is the only complete window-shading system with Cradle to Cradle Bronze™​ certification.

Since 1969, Mecho has been a trusted partner to architects, designers and engineers to help bring their design visions to life. Mecho is consistently at the forefront of revolutionizing window shades and thrives in hard-to-solve design and technical challenges. Mecho embraces projects that call for non-rectangular, sloping, high, wide, difficult-to-access, and other non-standard windows.
