Draper and Mermet Combine for More Reflective Dark Shades

(Spiceland, Ind.)– (Virtual Press Office) -- Selecting a window shade fabric has always been a choice between light colors with more heat reflective properties and dark colors with better aesthetics, glare control and view-through advantages.

With the introduction of Draper window shades featuring Mermet E Screen with KOOLBLACK™ Technology, however, those days are over—you no longer have to choose.

KOOLBLACK Technology incorporates reflective properties into dark color screen fabrics. Now you not only get excellent contrast for clear view through, color coordinated exterior building design and comfortable work environments—you also get maximized energy savings through reduced cooling costs.

Draper window shades featuring E Screen with KOOLBLACK Technology deliver up to 23% improvement in solar heat gain coefficient versus standard dark screen fabrics by reflecting near-infrared (NIR) solar energy.

E Screen with KOOLBLACK™ Technology is available in 3% and 5% openness factors. It meets the Restriction of Hazardous Substances (RoHS) lead-free standard, and is GREENGUARD® Children and Schools-certified.
