Bottom-Up FlexShade
Draper’s patent pending Bottom-Up FlexShade™ allows you to enjoy the benefits of natural daylighting by letting in natural light at the top of the window. The Bottom-Up FlexShade utilizes natural daylighting to its fullest extent, while protecting work surfaces near the windows from harsh glare and excess heat. The window shade rises from a roller at the bottom of the unit. It blocks the sun’s rays at the bottom of the window, while allowing daylight to pass comfortably above people and objects adjacent to the window. By reducing glare and heat, the Bottom-Up FlexShade promotes a comfortable work or living environment. The draw cables that lift the shade fabric are under even and constant tension, allowing for easy operation of the shade. This lifts the shade fabric evenly and securely.

Sustainability

Available with GreenGuard Gold fabrics, Cradle-to-Cradle Silver GreenScreen Revive, and PVC-free fabrics. In addition,Shade promote energy savings and worker comfort by reducing heat and glare in work areas.

Pricing
