Altex & Shadings
Proudly Canadian

"Since 1913, when our grandfather Georges Alepins founded his first business, our family has dedicated itself to serving our clients in outstanding fashion. In 1975, my brother and I had the opportunity to found Altex with our father. For four generations now, we have been driven by the same desire: to satisfy our customers.”
— Gaetan Alepins, President of Altex
Since Shading's founding, one constant has held true, our partnership with the family-owned Canadian window coverings manufacturer Altex. Internationally known for the quality of their products, the innovation of their technologies and the excellence of their service, Shadings is proud to be part of the Altex family.

Case Study:
The New Maison
de Radio-Canada

Radio-Canada, the Canadian Broadcasting Corporation’s French-language counterpart, recently moved into a new location, a creative hub for media production in the heart of Montreal. It is one that Shadings and Altex played an important role in creating.
This bright and versatile new home for the public broadcaster features a modern design, which presented a series of manufacturing and design challenges for its window coverings. Despite the abundance of irregular angles, special light control considerations and tight deadlines, the Altex and Shadings teams rose to the occasion.
Shadings and Altex delivered more than 1,250 blinds and installed in 15 working days thanks to the exceptional efforts of Shading’s internal installation team - all to the great satisfaction of both Radio-Canada (CBC) and the building developer, Broccolini.
