More about this product

The FlexShade® Zip exterior shading system by Draper prevents heat from entering buildings, thus lowering HVAC costs. In outdoor covered spaces such as garages and porches, it keeps harsh glare out and provides a more comfortable environment. The zip detail in the shade stops the fabric from being pulled out of the side channel. The shade system also protects against wind and insects.

Features

  • Side channels can be jamb or face mounted.
  • Side channel width is only 1 3/4" (44 mm).
  • No light gap at side channels for complete edge blackout system.
  • Can serve as an operable insect screen or room divider.
  • Provides excellent protection against wind.
  • Weighted hem bar to stabilize shade during operation.
  • Obstacle detection motor standard.
  • Product designed for exterior and interior use.
  • Wide range of fabric options.
  • Available in sizes up to 16' wide x 10' high (488 cm x 305 cm), depending on fabric selection.

Wind Resistance

Draper is the only North American manufacturer of zip systems to use wind-tunnel testing in North America.

FlexShade ZIP is wind-tunnel tested in winds up to 150 mph. The tests also show that FlexShade ZIP can withstand wind speeds of up to 100 mph when in the down position. The wind resistance of an exterior shade system comes from extruded aluminum side channels that incorporate plastic inner channels. Additionally, cushioning pads dampen fabric movement while “zip” details attached to the fabric’s edges keep it in place.

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.
