In the tri-state region, since 1954, Caldwell’s Windoware, has supplied the educational community with a variety of window treatments. Today, the most requested window covering for classrooms is the mesh solar shade. Our Premier chain and clutch operated mesh sun shade, which we fabricate in our factory, has replaced the old mini-blind as the most energy efficient and low maintenance window covering product for classroom windows. Caldwell’s will meet your window covering needs for horizontal blinds, spring roller window shades, and draperies. Our professional team measures and installs all of our products, and we are new construction specialists.

It is truly unfortunate that Caldwell’s has to add this product to our offerings, but the tragedies in our schools require it. We have the SECURE SHADE LOCK-DOWN shade. If the unfortunate need to lock-down your facility occurs you can be prepared with the Secure Shade. Please call 412-922-1132 for more information.
