One of the first choices many people make when selecting window shades is fabric type: mesh for glare control or opaque for privacy. But more homeowners are asking why they must choose. The short answer is that you don’t have to choose between glare control and privacy. The Draper@Home collection has the perfect solution!

Providing privacy and glare control with view-through.
Some people are looking for privacy while other are more interested in glare control. But what if you’ like both? You want to control glare while preserving views to the outside during the day, but have more privacy at night?

The solution is the Dual Roller FlexShade®. As the name implies, the Dual Roller FlexShade allows you to vertically stack two shades in one window. Lower the mesh shade for glare-free natural light during the day. At night, lower the opaque fabric for perfect privacy. You can hide the shade rollers out of sight above the ceiling or behind a fascia.

Creating multipurpose entertainment spaces.
Blackout shades are a popular choice in dedicated home theaters. But more people are creating multi-purpose entertaining spaces. Dual roller shades are also great for these areas because you can enjoy views without the glare most of the time, then lower the opaque shade when its time for a movie or the big game.

Such rooms often feature a retractable projection screen. But what if the best place for the screen is in front of a window?

Once again, the Dual Roller FlexShade is the solution. Instead of two shades, however, Draper can provide an opaque shade on one roller to block the backlight form the window. Instead of a mesh fabric on the other roller, we include a projection screen!

Both of these solutions are available with low or line voltage motorization. The motorized versions of these solutions are powered by Somfy for smart home integration. A manual version is also available.
