Reducing solar heat and glare is important for energy conservation, but shading systems usually focus on practicality first and design considerations second. FlexShade ZIP from Draper comes in a range of weather-resistant fabrics—many of which are Greenguard Gold certified—that can be coordinated with the company’s interior and exterior shades. Installed on the outside-facing side of the glass, the motorized shade is wind-tunnel tested up to 90 mph without failure or damage and is compatible with building automation systems. draperinc.com
