Draper@Home Hits IWCE with Exciting New Shading Solutions

(Spiceland, Ind.) – Draper@Home is bringing an exciting mix of new interior and outdoor shading solutions to the 2023 International Window Coverings Expo. Draper@Home is the residential brand of leading commercial shade manufacturer Draper Inc.

“Draper makes thousands of custom shades every day and are bringing that same scale to the retail and custom residential shading markets,” said Clint Childress, LEED-AP, Director of Residential Markets for Draper. “Those capabilities give us a unique ability to develop and bring to market a wider range of solutions than you typically see from a single manufacturer.”

One of the latest examples is FlexStyle, a motorized exposed roller shading system. It features stylish aluminum brackets in 9 luxurious colors and plated finishes, and unlimited fabric choices from Phifer and Mermet, including custom colors and patterns.

“FlexStyle was the first shade product we designed, engineered, and built specifically for the residential market, which shows how important this market is to us,” said Childress. “A maybe even more impressive example of what we bring to the residential area is our outdoor shading capability.”

Draper offers a wide range of outdoor shades, including the FlexShade Tension ZIP. The Tension ZIP enhances outdoor spaces by providing an additional layer of comfort. A zipper detail is heat welded to the fabric and runs through a channel on each side of the shade. The ZIP approach securely retains the fabric without gaps. Because the fabric is under constant tension, the Tension ZIP can be installed on any angle of glazing, or horizontally or vertically on an existing outdoor structure.

To learn about these and other Draper@Home home residential shading innovations, visit us in booth 907 at the International Window Coverings Expo, April 20-21, in Charlotte.
