Mecho's patented, innovative ElectroPocket significantly reduces installation time and expense due to minimal electrician time required. ElectroPocket is the industry's first ETL/UL certified pocket mounting solution for motorized roller shades and is ideal for new or renovation projects because its design eliminates the need for extensive wiring.
In addition to housing the roller shade, ElectroPocket provides a certified wiring raceway with optional accessory clips to secure all wiring safely away from a shade's moving parts. Our unique, proprietary design uses standard wire and cable instead of more expensive metal clad or conduit wiring to reduce maintenance and installation costs. Because Electropocket is pre-wired, it can be motorized later making it the perfect solution for tenant fit-outs in multi-family or mixed-use facilities.
