SHAADS® by Koti is a family-owned business founded by creator Chris Koenitz. The idea for SHAADS® came from a desire to make a product that could be easily installed, providing privacy, and protection from the sun's UV rays and heat. SHAADS®, a vision, possessing a simple and elegant design and implementation in any home, apartment, or business.
We invented this new product because of our show dogs, "The Koti Kids." In protecting the dogs from harmful heat and the sun's UV rays, SHAADS® covers were born. Also, bad knees created another problem integral in this concept we faced. The installation of other's skylight shades was more difficult. With the knee pain, the lack of desire to continuously climb ladders diminished. We made SHAADS® to help us easily install and remove the covers for cleaning purposes. Finally, for privacy purposes, we also wanted to see out but wanted no one to see in our windows, doors, and skylights.
