Why Mecho?

Mecho Systems is one of the pioneers in the solar shading industry. Since its founding more than 30 years ago, their shades have been "The Architect's Choice", and have been implemented everywhere from schools, to resorts, to skyscrapers, to buildings known the world over as architectural icons. Don't take our word for it. Here are a few of the Mecho Systems installations:


Why Automation?

With the flick of a switch or the press of a button on your smartphone or tablet, control your lights, raise or lower your shades, even lock your doors and arm your security system. Mecho Systems' shades seamlessly integrate with the residential or commercial automation system of your choice. We can integrate with, or install new, systems from Savant, Vantage, Crestron and others.

Automation, however, goes beyond just the "wow factor." Schedules can be set in your automation system to raise or lower shades based on time of day, time of year (changing position of the sun), and even current conditions through the use of roof-mounted radiometers. When you utilize the sun to light your home or office you save on electricity, and that saves you money while helping the environment.


Did you know?

42% of a commercial building's cooling load is generated from lighting? That is money out the window. Use solar shading to light your building for cost-saving efficiency while reducing eyestrain and improving the occupants' mood and productivity.


Shades also provide thermal protection from the sun's heat. Mecho Systems' shades can block the vast majority of solar heat, saving on cooling costs, while still allowing visibility to the outside.
