We’re coming up on the one-year anniversary of Screen Innovations’ major step into the indoor/outdoor shading category. Long (and still) a manufacturer of highly-touted home theater projection screens, the company realized an opportunity and innovated itself to expand its offering to include custom shades.

With that rollout well behind them now, and with a team of fully-trained and certified integrators on board, Screen Innovations has determined that the time is right for them to take the next big step with the launch of an in-house design service. SI Design Services will “fill the gap between concept and execution,” the company explained in a statement.

SI said that the inspiration behind the new service is their Nano indoor roller shade program, which is a multi-faceted approach to project design and product development. “We noticed that when we consulted directly with dealers prior to placing their Shade orders the likelihood of a well-executed project skyrocketed,” Tom Cooley, COO of Screen Innovations, said in the statement.

As such, the in-house SI Design Services team will accept blueprints and project requirements for any job that utilizes the company’s indoor/outdoor Shade lines. Their team of experts will then work closely with dealers to develop detailed and accurate plans, including every aspect of the Shade design process.

“Just as we have done since 2006 with the revolutionary Screen Wizard tool, we are investing deep to improve our Flow design software daily to make the most seamless Shade specifying experience imaginable,” Ryan Gustafson, Chief Innovator and CEO of SI, said in the statement. “Now we want to take Shade jobs to an entirely new level by offering a ‘pre-sale’ service that ensures proper specification. The response to our pilot program has been staggering.”

SI Design Services are currently available at no cost to authorized Screen Innovations Shade Dealers. Interested dealers should contact their SI sales rep to get started.
