Draper: Your Source for Projection Screens, Window Shades, and Gymnasium Equipment

Draper, Inc. was founded in Spiceland, Indiana in 1902 (it was then known as the Luther O. Draper Shade Company). Family-owned and operated for five generations, the founder’s descendants carry on Mr. Draper’s simple and straightforward business philosophy—make a quality product and offer it at a reasonable price.

Draper is a leading manufacturer of front and rear projection screen systems; mounts and lifts for projectors and flat screen displays; window coverings; and gymnasium equipment. Draper has a long tradition of quality, innovation, and corporate citizenship.

One facet of our corporate responsibility is responsibility for our environment. Draper shares products and expertise to help with environmentally effective installations. We offer many products that are certified GREENGUARD Gold. This is the toughest indoor air quality standard today. Draper products contain significant recycled content, and are also in large part recyclable (see www.draperinc.com/recycle.htm). The company is working to reduce, reuse, and recycle increasing quantities of waste materials from its operations.

Audio Visual Equipment

Draper projection screens, lifts, and mounts integrate fully into any audio-visual installation. The Conceal/Reveal TM product line enables sophisticated presentation systems to disappear from sight when not in use—hiding the projection screen, projector, flatscreen display, window shades, and more. Draper offers the most comprehensive range of projection screens and related products in the world, offering a solution for virtually any presentation need.

With more unique types of projection screens, framing systems, projector mounting systems, and combined years of design experience than any other projection screen manufacturer, Draper’s skilled engineers can provide an optimum solution for any front or rear screen display requirement.

Window Coverings

Draper, a traditional leader in educational window shades, also manufactures FlexShade Systems, the finest commercial window coverings. This custom shading system allows for almost unlimited flexibility in solar control and daylight management. Quality is backed by Draper’s 100-plus years in the window coverings industry.

FlexShades provide glare control, heat control and room darkening anywhere windows or skylights are found: classrooms, gymnasiums; offices, boardrooms and training rooms; military installations and laser labs; hospitals, extended care and nursing facilities; residences and home theatres; museums, darkrooms and any skylight space.

Each FlexShade product is built to order. Fabric, hardware and operating mechanisms are specified to satisfy functional and aesthetic criteria. Our spectrum of fabric colors and style is unmatched. Woven mesh fabrics offer protection from heat, glare and UV rays, while maintaining the view. Soft translucent textiles offer designer appeal. And our opaque fabrics eliminate all visible light.

Solar Control Solutions

Solar Control Solutions is Draper's premier line of architectural shading products. Solar Control Solutions provide precision control over the natural daylight entering the building, excellent energy savings and interesting facade design options. A wide range of custom products complements our traditional window coverings to meet all your needs for interior and exterior shading.

Exterior shading is the most efficient way to keep solar heat gain outside the building envelope. Draper can help develop a system that utilizes both interior and exterior shading to maximize efficiency and occupant comfort, and reduce energy consumption. Each custom solution we provide has specific benefits and features to enhance your overall building design and daylighting needs.
