More than a century ago Luther Draper began manufacturing window shades. Since then the company he founded, Draper, has become a leader in commercial window shades, exemplified by its FlexShade Systems.

Draper’s FlexShade Systems for institutional settings provide a range of solutions for virtually any window shade application, including its dual roller, LightBlock, skylight, panel and graphic FlexShades. Each FlexShade product is built to order. Fabric, hardware and operating mechanisms are conceived and designed to satisfy both functional and aesthetic demands. Draper’s impressive spectrum of fabric colors and styles includes woven mesh fabrics that provide solar control while maintaining views, soft translucent textiles with designer appeal, and opaque fabrics that eliminate all visible light. All are fire retardant and manufactured to endure harsh conditions.

Available in either motorized or manual control models, operation options include bead chain clutch, crank and spring roller, while motorized solutions include quiet motors, motors with built-in radio receiver, battery and low voltage operation. FlexShade’s IntelliFlex System makes it possible to control shades individually or in groups of almost any size, and to program the operation based on time or sunlight conditions. Switches, panels, remote controls and RS232 operation are all possible interfaces. High quality hardware ensures easy installations and years of trouble free use.

A member of the U.S. Green Building Council (USGBC), Draper is a leader in developing and promoting “green” practices through its environmentally-friendly products and operations. Draper uses PVC-free fabrics and lean manufacturing processes. And FlexShades, thanks to their energy saving capabilities, can contribute to LEED points and credits.

Our long association with Draper has helped us grow to become the largest provider of shading control solutions in the New York – Tri State region. We have installed Draper’s FlexShade’s for many commercial clients seeking high quality light controls for institutional settings.
