Sometimes the smallest detail can make a huge difference in our perception of interior design—even something as small as the pocket and hem bar on window shades.
That’s why we have a hem bar solution for every design need.
Since introducing Draper’s shade line at the 2016 CEDIA Expo, reaction has been overwhelmingly positive. But one comment we’ve noticed on occasion is that our standard hem bar option has too much of an “industrial” look.
Truth be told, we have several options to choose from. Yes, we have some options that have a more industrial look, but whatever your personal design preference, Draper has a hem bar solution for you.
Our standard hem bar is low profile, and designed to blend in with the shade. We’ll provide it with a 1″ elliptical slat inside the 1-5/8″ heat seamed pocket, with heat sealed ends, or with open pocket ends and decorative end caps on the hem bar. These options do look more “industrial” to some of our dealers—especially on the residential side. These are often found in commercial settings.
If you want the hem bar to be a more visible and elegant part of your design, we also have three options for exposed hem bars:
- A 1-1/2 inch x 5/16 inch rectangular hem bar with end caps. A
- A 7/8 x 5/16 inch version that brings the same clean look in a smaller package to residential and well-designed commercial applications.
- A ¾ inch round hem bar with end caps for another elegant alternative.
All three of these options are available in our five standard colors. For an upgrade, we can provide custom powder coat.
These hem bar options give our dealers a wider variety of cosmetic choices, so our shades can better compliment many various room styles. There is also a functional benefit when using a shade with side channels. With the open hem pocket or flat hem bar, the fabric and hem bars are the same width, allowing more bar to travel in the side channel.
These hem bar options are available on Draper Motorized, Clutch, Clutch XD, and Techmatic FlexShades. They are not available on Spring Roller or Bottom-Up FlexShades.
