More about this product

Draper's KOOLBLACK® Shades feature Mermet's fabric technology, which combines aesthetics and performance by incorporating near-infrared, heat reflective properties into dark color screen fabrics. This feature, coupled with the other benefits of dark colored fabrics, provides excellent contrast for a clear view, uniformed exterior building design, maximized energy savings and optimized occupant comfort.

T Screen Shades with Mermet KOOLBLACK® Technology is a high performing fabric for surface heat reflectance. With this shade product, buildings can be utilized more efficiently by maximizing the area of working space and decreasing energy load.

Advantages:

  • Available with all Draper FlexShade products
  • Woven with KOOLBLACK® Technology infused dark yarns and reflective white yarns for enhanced heat reflection
  • Dark yarns provide unmatched surface heat reflectance for less interior radiated heat and more comfortable working spaces
  • Reduces overall visible light transmittance (Tv) for superior views, glare control and the same daylighting benefits of conventional dark shade fabrics
  • Improved near-infrared reflectance of 64% in comparison to 3% for conventional charcoal/charcoal fabric
  • Excellent acoustic absorption with an NRC of up to 0.45
  • Improved heat control and energy savings

Only E Screen with KOOLBLACK® Technology can achieve the full range of screen benefits:

  • Increased IR reflectance = less re-radiated heat = lower cooling costs and enhanced occupant comfort
  • Superior view through and glare control
  • Coordinated exterior building design and aesthetics when incorporated with glazing
