    Ceiling mounted Roller shade?

    Client wants to use a roller shade as a room partition - which means it needs to be mounted to the ceiling. What is the best way to mount roller shade to the ceiling? Can it be recessed into the ceiling (if joist orientation allows), or is there a way to install fascia on both sides of the roller? Any better ideas?

    You could try a pocket instead of fascia with a top/back cover. The endcaps require a little touch-up to look seamless but the pockets worked for me in an odd application where a fascia wouldn't work.

    Thanks for the advice. Where do you get pockets for the rollers?

    If you are already certified to purchase Lutron shades then you can also order pockets through Lutron as well.
    The pockets can be recessed installed as well. You can view some drawings of different mounting types on our website. Go to www.lutron.com , service and support, then cad drawings. On the next page hover your mouse over S and select Sivoia QS. The next page will give the drawings in .pdf format for quick viewing.
