What do custom integrators do when they have an angled window that requires interior shading? A new solution from Draper means installers don’t have to use a square shade and overlap the window opening. The Gabled Bottom-Up FlexShade can be sill-mounted in the window.
Draper says the new FlexShade solution, part of the ever-increasing shades lineup, can handle angles up to 45 degrees in either direction.
The shade panel is kept under constant tension by thin cables that deploy from tensioned spring boxes and attach to a flexible hem bar. Draper uses a .06-inch (1.5 mm) low-stretch, high fatigue cable with a polyester jacket, the company says.
To help installers get it just right, the Draper engineering team built tracking adjustment right in to the idler endcap. It’s a simple two-part process to adjust the tracking of the fabric panel so it always appears perfectly straight, Draper explains.
The Gabled Bottom-Up FlexShade is available with a variety of motors and control options, and can be integrated into smart home networks, the Spiceland, Ind.-based company adds.
