United Shade Roller Shades.Dicor Corporation affiliate United Shade is helping both RV manufacturers and RV dealers as well as the RVer take advantage of the popularity of roller shades with several offerings.

Under the company’s  “Shades of Excellence” theme, the offerings come in three designs, and can be motorized or manual, including:

• Heavy Duty (HD) options for heavy fabrics with a long traverse, available in Day/Night Motorized, Day/Night Slow Up and Night and can be motorized or manual.

• Light Weight (LT) to help shave off unit weight. Lighter than HD with a smaller mounted profile, this design is great for tight spots between valances and windows. It is available in Day/Night Motorized, Single Motorized and manual Slow Up.

• The Classic Series (CS) with an elegant retro look. It uses familiar, residential style adjustments and a no-headrail design that’s perfect for space and weight restrictions. Employs universal wall or ceiling mounting brackets and is manual only.

United Shade is introducing the RV industry’s first motorized cargo screen for toy haulers. It can be operated by a key-fob remote control from up to 100 feet away.

GateKeeper CargoScreen for Toy Haulers

Called the GateKeeper CargoScreen™, this new offering has a fully enclosed motor/spring mechanism, side channels, and a bottom rail for a clean, sharp appearance. It is made of heavy-duty screen material and uses an advanced technology Screenlock™ system to keep the screen in the sidetracks when hit or pushed. A manual GateKeeper is also available, which features a durable, fully contained locking mechanism on the bottom rail. The heavy-duty 12-volt motorized option requires no locking mechanism to remain secure.

The GateKeeper easily attaches to either the rear wall or the interior sidewalls for added flexibility and uses universal mounting hardware. It can also be customized for different size openings. Its dark screen provides UV protection for interior furnishings and keeps the RV clean and secure while owners are away. A custom graphic can also be printed on the screen.

Currently the GateKeeper is offered to OEM customers, but United Shade is also expecting it to be an aftermarket add-on for RV dealers and their customers.

“We’re always looking for ways to improve the RV experience and the GateKeeper is one product that will work very well for RVers,” said Braden McCormick, general manager of United Shade. “For keeping out insects, sun and other things, it is a valuable addition to any RV, and one that requires minimal installation time.”

United Shade is an affiliate of Dicor Corporation, whose companies are leading suppliers for the RV industry.

The GateKeeper CargoScreen will be on display along with a record number of other new products from Dicor Corporation at the National RV Trade Show in Louisville, Ky., Nov. 30 to Dec. 1.
