Have you tried to test drive the blinds as they will come at a store? If those don't work I know Hunter Douglas makes inside pleated blinds with remote controls. If this has changed I'll be thrilled because I can see needing a slider replacement here in a year or two and want to stick with Pealla but want easy to use and clean blinds and the lowered entry again.

    do you have a vinyl slider now if so hows it holding up as far as running over threshold in chair

    Have a vinyl sliding door and like I said before, use nosing ramps on both sides, Was fine for 6 years until one of my aids stepped on the inside of the threshold and cracked it. Fixed it with some shelving material. Just last month after 9 years, my power wheelchair managed to crack the outside edge and we are going to anchor a foot of angle iron to the concrete slab next to it then epoxy the crack. Use large powerchairs and I say it held up well.

    No Tri's or hand function.

    Far better it is to try mighty things, to win glorious triumphs, even though checkered by failure. Than to take rank with those poor spirits who neither enjoy much or suffer much, because they live in the grey twilight that knows neither victory or defeat.
