New Graber UltraLite Lift System raises the bar on lifting and lowering window shades

Posted October 27, 2021

MIDDLETON, WI – October 27, 2021 – Graber, a Springs Window Fashions company, has engineered a new and innovative lift system for their solar and roller shades that lets customers position a shade quickly, quietly and precisely, controlling light and privacy levels with only a gentle touch. The Graber UltraLite Lift System debuts today and is available exclusively through Graber dealers.

Previous industry-wide lift systems can be heavy or can be difficult to accurately position. The new system eliminates those concerns and is available in over 500 choices of designer fabrics and two lift control styles: an UltraLite Cordless Lift, featuring no visible cords, and a patent-pending hybrid system, UltraLite Dual Lift, ideal for tall or hard-to-reach windows. The dual lift version can be operated both cordlessly and with a beaded chain that raises the entire shade with one pull. Both systems allow customers to precisely position the shade—the first time, every time.

The industry-leading technology behind The Graber UltraLite Lift System was developed in-house by Graber and is backed by a limited lifetime warranty. Among its innovations:


  • UltraLite shades can be raised, lowered, and precisely positioned with the lightest touch—they're virtually weightless!
  • The UltraLite lift reduces friction, making it whisper quiet
  • 33% narrower gap along shade edges than Graber’s current cordless system for improved light control
  • Covers 60% more window sizes than the nearest cordless roller shade competitor
  • Hidden mechanics and updated mounting hardware provide an elegant aesthetic

“Like all of our innovations, the development of Graber’s UltraLite lift system was driven by customers,” said Julia Dorn, Executive Director of Product and Portfolio Management. “We are meeting a need by updating our previous jog-and-stop with dramatically lighter shades and precision placement that can cover virtually any window—and that’s something the Graber UltraLite Lift System takes to a new level that our competitors simply can’t match.”
