As one of the largest roller shade manufacturing facilities in the United States, Polar Shades Sun Control proudly boasts top-of-the-line equipment and devoted staff members.
Located in Las Vegas, Nevada, our manufacturing division creates roller shades for customers worldwide. We supply interior and exterior manual and motorized shades for residential, commercial, health care, educational, hospitality, and other industries.
As our company has grown over the years, we have invested in our people, production equipment and space to ensure each item we create measures up to our impeccable quality standards.
2 Large Plotter Cutting Tables
The Polar Shades manufacturing facility houses 2 of the largest Gerber computerized fabric cutting tables on the West Coast.
These massive machines allow us to build hundreds of shades each day by precision-cutting fabric quickly and efficiently. Thanks to their computerized calibration, the Gerbers accurately cut fabrics in the shapes, sizes and measurements necessary to fulfill our demanding requirements. We also carry automated machines for decorative fabrics.
Additionally, we also house an industrial commercial steel saw, 2 industrial commercial upcut saws for aluminum extrusion and a high-speed cutting machine for contract jobs that allows us to produce as many as 800 shades in 8 hours.
Our Fabric Carousels
We utilize 2 different fabric carousels, on our factory line. Each of these is positioned at the end of their respective cutting tables, holding up to 60 rolls of fabric at a time. We don’t limit ourselves to only 120 rolls. We carry more than 4,000 different fabrics in our inventory.
Our fabric carousels allow us to:
Keep our fabric in excellent condition
Organize the material for future orders
Cut & move it quickly, yet carefully
The design of this setup is simple — We increase efficiency without compromising quality.
3 Impulse Welders
Quality is essential when it comes to the Polar Shades brand. To ensure every seam is accurately connected and finished with a series of clean lines, we utilize the most advanced impulse welding technology. Our modern and beautiful 7.62-meter impulse welding machine is the largest in the U.S., offering greater range for longer welds that won’t burn the fabrics.
In addition to our 7.62-meter machine, we also have a 4-meter and 3-meter welder. With each one, two pieces of fabric align on a single plane, seamlessly coming together with a clean finish; the same is true when we create pockets for weights or hem bars.
The laser alignment and precision of our welding technologies is second to none, allowing our products to stand out far above the competition.
Assembly & Inspection of Our Roller Shades
Once each roller shade has been carefully assembled, it’s placed upon an inspection rack where our team of professionals examines the product to be sure it meets our high expectations. Each of our 11 assembly inspection racks comes equipped with its own lightbox, which allows us to check all fabrics for flaws and pinholes using LED lights.
Each item is thoroughly inspected for:
Roller tube deflection
Imperfect tracking of the fabric seams
No shade will be packed and shipped until it is deemed to be perfect. Once an interior or exterior shade has been approved for shipment or installation, our team will carefully wrap the product to ensure its safe transfer.
Unbeatable Processing & Care
We do not take our orders lightly. Our packaging team meticulously inspects each order, making sure the right shades and appropriate components arrive at our customers’ doors.
To ensure customers get what they paid for, we carefully place a packaging slip inside each box. This sheet contains all of the components in the box, including the shade itself, plus any remotes, switches, brackets, and cables. Each shade is individually labelled with room location and shade dimensions for easy installation.
