Upgrading to MCD Innovations window shades enhances privacy and improves climate-control efficiency
Over the years, motorhome window coverings have come in a variety of choices: curtains, Venetian blinds, pleated shades and Roman shades. In the past few years, roller shades have gained wide acceptance as the window covering of choice in motorhomes for their ease of operation, reliability and visual appeal.
In the world of RV roller shades, perhaps no brand is more recognizable than MCD Innovations. Founded in 2003, MCD produces roller shades that are used by many motorhome manufacturers, and are available in manual and motorized formats. The manual shades use a speed reducer to slow the shades while retracting quietly. An AutoStop™ mechanism limits how high the shade will retract so it can be accessed easily at the bottom of the valance. MCD’s motorized shades contain a 12-volt DC motor located inside the shade’s roller tube that’s controlled by a switch or a remote control. The tubular motors are quiet, and the upper and lower stop limits are programmable.
MCD’s American Solo® Shades are a single-shade unit using Clearview™ Solar Screen (day) or a 100 percent light-blocking (night) material. The day shade is a finely woven black mesh fabric that provides UV protection and reduces solar heat transfer. Night shades are available in several colors of vinyl or decorator fabrics. American Duo® Shades have a day and night shade in one unit; both can be operated manually or with a motor, or one shade can function manually, while the other is motorized.
If your window coverings are worn, broken or just plain unsightly, MCD can custom build roller shades to fit. The first step is to determine whether you will self-install the shades or have them professionally hung at MCD’s manufacturing facility in McKinney, Texas, or by one of its certified dealers. The McKinney facility has 12 RV spaces with electrical hookups where customers can park overnight while their shades are updated. Upon arrival, technicians take all the necessary measurements and quote a price. The shades are custom-built and installed — the entire process usually takes about five days to complete.
