Draper announces FlexShade Recharge, a quiet, battery-operated shade with rechargeable batteries, here at InfoComm. Draper’s FlexShade Recharge is designed for flexible installations and can be installed in a variety of places, including larger window openings. Available up to 12 feet high and 12 feet wide, the FlexShade Recharge features simple installation, similar to a manual window shade. The batteries last longer and are more powerful than those in other systems, and with no external battery wand, extra space isn’t required for the batteries. With FlexShade Recharge battery is hidden inside the roller tube and can be recharged from a 110V outlet or an optional solar panel.
FlexShade Recharge has a touch-sensitive remote control, or a flush-mount wall switch and works with all the major control systems. FlexShade Recharge also features several accessories, including a maintenance charger, solar panel for battery motors and cable extenders. In addition, the FlexShade Recharge app can be used to control or program the shades. Since the motor has bi-directional communication, the app even knows when it’s time to charge the battery.
