Clutch Window Shade

Take the Fear Out of Shades
AV dealers who sell shades have been asking for more after-sale support, and we’ve listened. After all, you want to provide people living and working in buildings the best shading solutions. We want to help you make that happen.

Draper is joining forces with Herman Integration Services to provide field measuring and verification for every shade, installation services, and programming and integration experience.

This won’t change anything about dealing with Draper. You will still contact us for a quote, and get basic sales training from us. Once you have the quote, you can then contact Herman for pricing on everything from field verification to installation and programming.

For more information on how to benefit from this partnership, contact Chris Bianchet, president of Herman Integration Services, at or (844) 441-1669.

You can also contact Draper residential market manager Amy Madden, CTS, LEED®AP, ISF, at or (765) 856-1212.

Speaking of Shades
One easy and low-cost way to get into shades is with our award-winning FlexShade® Recharge. It’s quiet enough to go anywhere and is available up to 12’ high and 12’ wide. With simple installation (similar to a manual window shade) and no wiring, you’ll save time and money on the install. The batteries last longer and are more powerful than those in other systems, and are hidden safely inside the roller tube. Recharge from a 110V outlet or an optional solar panel.
