A Roman shade that opens smoothly every time!

The Wide Pleat Roman is a Roman shade with pleat that is double the size of our Classic Roman Shade. It is recommended for either very tall windows, where you can't reach the shade when it is up, and for wide windows of 6 feet or more. It is best if the Wide Pleat Roman Shade has plenty of room to mount above the window, usually at least 8 inches. This style shade is also appropriate for schools, offices, and place of worship. Our basic cover fabric is inherently flame resistant, making them appropriate for use in public places, without the fear of harsh chemical flame retardants. The no-fuss pleats have been very popular with our customers with handicapping conditions, making this easy-to -open shade the right choice for them.
