Elite Window Fashions: Celebrating 50 Years

by | Apr 26, 2017 | Business Feature

 Elite Window Fashions is proud to be celebrating their 50th anniversary in 2017.

What began as a small window blinds shop located in Toronto in 1967, has now grown to become leading manufacturer of custom residential and commercial window coverings across Canada.

Over the years Elite has continued to offer a wide range of quality window treatments and is an innovator in new window treatments. Elite works diligently to offer modern and convenient options that cater to a wide range of diverse needs. Elite prides themselves on the care and dedication that they give to their customers, and put in the extra effort to meet all of their needs. So whether you’re looking for something simple like roman shades or have something more technical in mind like automated window coverings, Elite has something for everyone.

Environmental Initiatives

Windows are one of house’s main sources of heat loss, so Elite Window Fashions has taken measures to combat energy loss in order to better help their customers as well as do their part in environmental conservation. Elite is a member of the Canadian Green Building Council. Their mission is to assist in the creation of buildings and communities that are both environmentally responsible, as well as profitable. They emphasize energy-saving features that offer alternatives to turning on the air-conditioning and heat.

So whether it’s the heat or the cold that is the obstacle, the right window treatments can save money on energy bills. For instance, cellular shades will combat a draft while solar shades will keep a house from heating up due to rays from the sun. These are just a few options to improve either insulation issues or heat and glare protection. The shades can be synced with an app or timer to open and close during peak hours of the day for further energy saving. Some even have sun sensors that react to measure sunlight and heat.

Elite’s dealers are ready to advise customers on what option is best for them. Many of their textiles and materials are also certified for their environmental sustainability and safety, and contain no harmful chemicals or substances. Fabric samples are labeled with industry leading certifications like GreenGuard and Oeko-Tex.

Child Safety

Elite is committed to ensuring that all products are safe everyone who will be around them. One of the main concerns people have is their children and the structure. Due to this, all treatments conform to Health Canada’s current regulations on Corded Window Covering products. It states that all cords on these products must be clearly visible and be provided with tension features. When installed properly the loops and cords will be taught enough to prevent an accident from occurring.

For concerned parents who want to avoid cords completely, cordless and automated window treatments are a popular option with Elite. Cordless coverings utilize an internal spring on the blind to raise and lower by hand. Automated products on the other hand, are typically controlled by a remote or wall switch. Smart phones and home automation systems can be integrated with these window treatments for further convenience.

Custom Blinds

Elite is able to print digital images onto a number of different fabrics that they carry. This is all in an effort to ensure that each and every customer get what they want for their home or business. Both patterns and pictures can be used on their blinds, as well as borders for an understated look. This allows clients to put a dash of personality onto the window treatments and adds to the overall look of their space. These printed blinds are also a great option for window treatments being used in a child’s room.
