Lifting Systems for Blinds

There are many different lifting systems available at Spencer Carlson for horizontal blinds and vertical blinds from Hunter Douglas that vary in their functionality and operation.

Manual operation of your window blinds may seem like old news, but the manual lifting systems for Hunter Douglas blinds offer the latest technology and features as described below:

  • Standard Cordlock – The standard cordlock lifting system uses a long cord and an internal locking mechanism to operate the blinds. This operating system is equipped with a cord cleat to safely keep the cord out of the reach of children or pets.
  • Clutch – The clutch operates Hunter Douglas blinds with a beaded cord loop to raise and lower the blinds. To raise the shades, pull the front half of the loop and to lower the shades, pull the back half of the loop.
  • EasyRiseTMThe EasyRiseTM operating system uses a single loop to operate the blinds. Pulling on the cord allows you to open or close the Hunter Douglas window blinds.
  • UltraGlide® - The UltraGlide® and the UltraGlide® 2 utilize a retractable cord mechanism to open and close the blinds by pulling on the cord. Additionally, the UltraGlide® 2 has a feature that automatically closes the shade when the cord is pulled in the center.
  • LiteRise® - The LiteRise® lifting system is a cordless operating system that raises and lowers blinds by pushing and pulling on the blinds to put the window treatment exactly where you want it. This revolutionary technology keeps the blinds right where you put them!
  • The Traveling WandTMThe Traveling WandTM uses a wand to open or close vertical blinds in place of a cord or looped cords, which increases the safety of the blinds. The wand control can open, close and rotate the slats of vertical blinds.

Stepping into the future of window blinds, the motorized lifting systems from Hunter Douglas provide your home with added accessibility and convenience as described below:
