Motorized window shades have been on the market for several years now and Draper has upped the game again. They create specialized systems that can actually operate with sun tracking in order to open or close the shades automatically.
Intelligent motorized solar shades are so much more than the average motorized window shades. It’s a truly independent product of a large variety of window shades, blinds and solar shades that can operate all on its own when integrated into your home or business automation system.
What Fabrics Are Used?
You can choose fabrics from 1 % openness to 14% openness and as dark as blackout fabric for any of these types of shades. You get to decide how dark you want a room in your residential or commercial office building in incremental percentages to best suit your needs. These fabrics are available in several styles to complement your windows. You can choose from horizontal blinds, pleated shades, solar shades and cellular shades in any fabric.
The spectrum of beautiful and functional fabric colors and styles is unmatched by any other manufacturer. You can choose a particular fabric to suit any aesthetic or performance challenge to make your Draper motorized shading product a solution. You may choose mesh fabrics to protect against glare, UV rays and heat while still maintaining a great view of the outside world. You may opt for the soft and translucent textiles for a great designer appeal or an opaque fabric that eliminates visible light and provides privacy on the first floor of your residential or commercial business.
How are These Motorized Shades Operated?
You can operate these motorized shades with the standard touch of a button or you can pre-set timers to operate all of the motors at once for a certain time to open and a specific time to close. They can be opened and closed partially or fully. You can set a bank of them to operate at different times from another bank or you can choose to operate each on a separate timer. No matter the size of the project, this system can handle it because it can control thousands of motors on one single network.
You can upgrade and integrate your motorized shades into your residential or commercial office automation systems or smart systems. This works well with a small, large or custom project of any size. You can upgrade to shading and occupancy switches or have your shading and lighting controlled through a building management system. These systems can adjust themselves in a truly fascinating manner that is based entirely on external conditions with climate sensors and timers. They can automatically manage temperature, moderate your heat gain or loss and optimize natural light while reducing glare inside. These items all give you a better environment based on the settings outside.
Energy Saving Qualities
Draper motorized window systems are designed to be the ultimate in saving you on your energy bills. The use of daylighting reduces the need for artificial light and thereby reduces your electric bill when you let the natural daylight shine into a room or office. In the winter, daylighting allows solar radiation to
help heat the building to reduce your need for energy for heating your office spaces. The correct solar control solutions help to reduce your reliance on the HVAC in the summer because it can cut the solar heat gain from windows. You can even set the controls to reduce your heating costs in the winter by helping to retain your building heat on cloudy days when it’s colder outside.
Protection for Your Textiles
Motorized blinds provide protection from the UV rays of the sun. When the sun shines through a window, it magnifies through the glass, just as a magnifying glass does. This can cause damages, fading and discoloration of your flooring, furniture and artwork on the walls from the intense rays over time. Having a shading solution that is automatic, can save you more money in the long run from having to replace any textiles because they won’t be ruined by the bright sunlight. The best part of the Draper motorizes flex shades system is that you don’t have to actually think about opening or closing your shading solution, it can be pre-programmed to do it on its own.
An Added Layer of Security
All commercial and residential buildings have a security system for obvious reasons. However, automated window shading can add another layer of security to your space. At times, someone may forget to lower the shades before being the last person to leave a building. A Draper system takes care of this for you automatically. You can program it to close all the window coverings on the ground floor at a specific time so anyone passing by can’t see inside. This helps to repel thieves that may be looking in your windows to decide if there is anything they can quickly grab and get away with, such as computer equipment. You can also combine this feature with lighting controls that turn the lights off at a specific time in the building.
