SHAADS® is a family-owned business founded by creator Chris Koenitz. The idea for our New Jersey made high-end window coverings came from a desire to make a product that could easily be installed to cover the skylights in his house from the harmful, damaging and brutal UV sun's rays and that excessive heat. 


Not wanting to spend hours on a ladder at that time due to painful bad knees, trying to install a complicated skylight cover to him or just balancing his power tools for a long while on a ladder, was not appealing.  He first tried covering the skylight with paper to protect his home but it just didn't work for him or look that good. Even if he kept raising the air conditioning,  the sun rays were harmful to his family, pets and furniture.  Additionally,  the cost to run the AC longer and at colder temperatures got very expensive.

So the idea of the SHAADS® cover came along.  Keeping in mind that it had to be simple to install, added a beautiful quality and elegant  presence in the room, it's  useful privacy - light filtering - sun blocking,  it was evident that these many good features, like very easy to take down, to clean, and easy to re-install in just minutes are awesome attributes of this product.

The next problem integral in this concept he faced were doors and windows which were not installed in the same way.   Wanting to keep this very unique product different from the old staple way of installing, he also wanted to keep it easy even for those who feel that they are not handy.  We now offer New Jersey made SHAADS® high-end window coverings to customers nationwide. We have a full array of affordable window treatments for skylight, doors and windows with the same ease of installing.
