Draper announces AV shades partnership with Herman


Since we began re-introducing Draper window shade products into the AV market, we’ve talked to many dealers who like the idea, but don’t feel they have the technical and product knowledge to install and support shades.

With those dealers in mind, Draper has announced a new partnership to provide additional after-sale support to dealers who sell shades.

Draper announces AV shades partnership with Herman

We’re joining forces with Herman Integration Services to provide project management, field measuring, and verification for every shade, installation services, and programming and integration experience—or any combination thereof.

Dealers will still contact Draper for a quote and to get basic sales training. Once a dealer has the quote, they can 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.

To speak with Draper, contact residential market manager Amy Madden, CTS, LEED®AP, ISF, at or 765-856-1212. She’s our “shade expert” for the Pro-AV channel as well, so if you need help, don’t hesitate to contact her!

Draper has also released an updated window shade price list for commercial and residential AV dealers.

In addition to updated pricing, the price list includes information on the award-winning FlexShade® Recharge, Draper’s rechargeable battery-operated shade that debuted earlier this year. The Recharge, which received a “CI Best InfoComm” award from Commercial Integrator Magazine, features simple installation, similar to a manual window shade. The batteries last longer and are more powerful than those in other systems. With long-lasting charges, the FlexShade Recharge battery is hidden safely inside the roller tube and can be recharged from a 110V outlet or an optional solar panel. FlexShade Recharge is quiet and provides a reliable, versatile motorized shade without additional wiring.
