The Bottom-Up FlexShade® window shade rises from a roller at the bottom of the window sill, utilizing natural daylighting to its fullest extent. It can be both manually and electrically operated and is available in a wide range of fabrics (see the full range).
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. When partially open, Draper's window shade guides natural daylight by blocking the sun’s rays at the bottom of the window, allowing sunlight to pass comfortably above people and objects. It protects work surfaces near windows from harsh glare and excess heat while also providing privacy.
The Bottom-Up FlexShade® creates a comfortable work and/or living environment and is ideally suited to home and office spaces.
Motorized window shades can automatically adjust to compensate for the changing shade requirements throughout the day.
In addition, shades can reduce or eliminate uncomfortable glare for workers, while still allowing ambient sunlighting and views to the exterior. Draper's window shades are environmentally-friendly and include PVC-free fabrics, recyclable fabrics and lean manufacturing processes.
Draper Roller Shades are manufactured in the USA using primarily USA-woven fabrics from Phifer and Mermet, ensuring a simple and direct supply chain that gives Draper maximum control over fast deliveries and product availability.
