New Palladiom Shading System from Lutron Reinforces Company’s Commitment to Beauty, Craftsmanship and Technology with Exposed, Handcrafted Hardware

Palladiom Shading System expands Lutron’s design platform of highly-crafted keypads, accessories and thermostats

Coopersburg, PA (September 7th, 2017) – Lighting and shade control leader Lutron Electronics is introducing the new Palladiom Shading System, a beautiful, new shading solution that features highly-crafted exposed hardware for the world’s most exquisite homes. This new aesthetically-driven solution offers industry-leading shading performance and reliability, plus seamless integration with Lutron’s HomeWorks QS system and other third-party products to create an immersive light, shade and temperature control experience.

An Elegant, Simple Design
To achieve the desired minimalist aesthetic desired by the architecture and design community, Lutron completely redesigned its shade drive and structural architecture, ensuring the Palladiom Shading System would be visually striking in an exposed install condition. Lutron’s archetypal Palladiom keypad was the inspiration for the design language exemplified by the brackets and hembar for the Palladiom Shading System – minimal in form and deliberate in its simplicity.

“Lutron’s material manufacturing excellence and unique position in the industry as a shading technology innovator put us in the perfect position to develop the Palladiom shading system,” said Ed Blair, Lutron Senior Vice-President. “This new shading system expands the Palladiom collection of coordinating keypads, accessories and thermostats, giving homeowners the ability to match aesthetics throughout a space without compromise.”

Palladiom Shading System features include:
  • large window capacity: available for shades up to 12’ by 12’ within a slender 3” profile
  • symmetrical ½" light gaps, the smallest light gaps of any Lutron automated shade
  • hand-polished hardware that’s available in a variety of metal finishes
  • clean finish: minimal profile brackets elegantly conceal all wiring, structural fasteners and the programming interface
  • The Palladiom Bottom Rail completes the look with a slim, metal hembar that perfectly fits into the negative space behind the bracket when the shade is fully open.
  • accommodating design: highly-specialized window covering and custom installers can now offer clients a high-performance shading solution designed for exposed conditions, eliminating the need for custom pockets or bulky fascia

The product will begin shipping to a select, exclusive group of Lutron dealers in December, with broader availability in early 2018. Visit for more information.
