Draper shades powered by the Draper Digital Network (DDN)


More budget-conscious and sustainability-aware healthcare facilities are making daylighting a major part of building plans. With the positive impact of using natural lighting, however, come less advantageous side-effects: glare and increased load on a building’s environmental systems. Draper shades powered by the Draper Digital Network (DDN) can help.

The DDN is a system of window shades with intelligent motors linked to an IP interface box. Through the use of input devices such as hospital bed controls, wall switches and sun sensors, shades can be manually or automatically adjusted for thermal and visual comfort. Timed functions from the IP interface can also automate every shade throughout a facility for any needs, including shade adjustment for the sun’s position, or light pollution control at night if seeking a LEED credit.

The Draper Digital Network’s IP/Web server interface allows the deployment of a virtual smart switch which can be accessed by any PC connected to the Building LAN—and it works via any standard web browser.

The DDN is so accurate that preset positions last for the life of the motor, and it’s easy to integrate with dry contacts or RS485. For more information on how the Draper Digital Network can make your building more energy efficient, visit
