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 shade fabrics. This feature, coupled with the other benefits of dark-colored fabrics, provides excellent contrast for a clear view, uninformed exterior building design, maximized energy savings and optimized occupant comfort.

Window treatments that facilitate solar control by reducing solar heat gain are an integral solution for sustainable architecture. The daylighting strategy of a green building is made easy with custom shading which can both provide glare control shading and let in natural light.

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.


  • 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
