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:
- Las Vegas City Center
- 27,000 automated mechanized MechoShades were installed in the various buildings comprising the City Center complex.
- Gregory Bateson Building
- This property utilized MechoShades in an outdoor installation. The very same durable fabric used in your home or office lasted 30 years outside in the Sacramento sun and weather before needing to be replaced.
- MetLife NY Headquarters
- If you've ever seen the commercial on TV that shows the conference room at the top of the MetLife building with the sloped windows, those are MechoShades!
- New York Times NY Headquarters
- Goldman Sachs NY Headquarters
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.
