Draper Unveils Shading Solution for Angled Windows

Draper Gabled Bottom-Up FlexShade

Introducing the ingenious, aesthetically pleasing new Gabled Bottom-Up FlexShade.

Draper Gabled Bottom-Up FlexShade

What do you do when you have an angled window that requires interior shading? A new solution from Draper means you 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, and it 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.

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 looks perfectly straight.

The Gabled Bottom-Up FlexShade is available with a variety of motors and control options, and can be integrated into smart home networks.
