Thread: Triathlon-wired: where to run the power wire?

    Question Triathlon-wired: where to run the power wire?

    I found documentation about Sivoia QS Roller 64 and others showing detailed sketches on where the power wire should come on the drywall, but nothing for a Triathlon 12V wired shade, without fascia. Can anyone tell me where is the best location to hang the wire prior to installation, so that it is not visible? Thank you!

    Anywhere within the window frame. The Triathlon shade will have enough wire in the "battery compartment" to reach both sides. I would follow the recommendations for the minimum from the wall per Sivoia QS.

    Thanks for the reply SanDiegoRep, but the Triathlon Wired does not have a battery compartment when you do not order it with fascia, so it's just a roll. It's different from the Sivoia QS because it has a railing from left to right that clips on the brackets. Trying to figure out where to pass the cable so that it is not apparent, client doesn't want a fascia. Thank you!

    To determine where to run the power wire to a 12V version of the Triathlon roller shade, first decide if it is a left or right drive.
    Then use step 4 (page 2) of the install guide at this address:

    Thank you Tim S. How do I determine if it is a left or right drive? I don't seem to be given this option on the SCT when configuring the shade.

    True, the SCT will not give an option like it would with R64 or R100 roller shades.

    When ordering a Triathlon Roller shade with the 12VDC option:
    The drive will be on the left for a regular-roll shade (fabric closer to the glass).
    The drive will be on the right for a reverse-roll shade (fabric closer to the room).
