More about this product

While skylights effectively allow natural daylight into buildings, sunlight must to be properly managed to mitigate glare and excessive heat gain.

If the solar gain through the glazing is controlled by a shading system, light levels can be moderated as required and heat gain can be mitigated, reducing the size of the required HVAC system. In addition, if the building has a heating requirement in the winter, certain shading systems can be retracted or set to a position to allow in free solar gains.

Draper's Skylight FlexShade® is a series of interior skylight window shades designed specifically to control heat gain and radiation coming from skylight windows.

Fabric Systems

When considering the shading of a skylight, the standard approach is to use a fabric system. Possible options include fixed fabric panels, suspended elements such as kites, or retractable fabric tension systems.
