This week, Draper shade dealers will be receiving emails allowing them to download the 2018 FlexShade Price List. The new price list will take effect February 19 and there are several exciting additions.

FlexShade® NEXD
The next generation of the premium XD clutch is here and it’s available with cassette-style installation! The FlexShade® NEXD has a 3” profile and can also be wall- or ceiling-mounted using the adjustable brackets, which include jamb mounting holes and a height-adjustable idler bracket. The premium NEXD features right side operation as standard, and comes with a chain tension device and stainless steel bead chain.

Flexshade® XL
At up to 25′ wide, this is our largest cassette-style FlexShade®. We re-purposed our ZIP 127 (5″ x 5″) headbox and integrated a cradle support system that allows for greater width with minimum deflection. This FlexShade® may be wall- or ceiling-mounted and is powered by an RTS motor as standard.

Flexshade® ZIP XL
Our largest ZIP FlexShade® is available up to 25′ wide. The ZIP XL features an integrated cradle support system to minimize deflection, despite the sleek 5″ x 5″ headbox. The ZIP XL’s wind resistance is not compromised by the larger sizes. The fabric panel’s welded zip edges run inside inner channels in the side guide extrusions. These inner channels are held inside the side guide extrusion and have cushioning pads to dampen the movement of the fabric panel under wind load.

Obstacle Detection Motors
Never again worry about sticks or other debris causing an exterior shade to stop short of closed, while the motor continues to run. All ZIP shades will now come equipped as standard with obstruction detection motors. As soon as the hem bar touches an obstacle, the motor stops.

As mentioned above, dealers will receive emails with download links for the new price books this week. If you haven’t yet, you’ll need to click here to register for Draper’s Pro Portal. It’s free and, in addition to access to pricing information, you’ll find many handy resources and tools.
