FlexShade Coupler

Control Multiple Shades with Single Operator

Drive multiple window shades with a single motor or crank, the FlexShade Coupler makes it easier than ever to group multiple shades with a single operator. Reducing the number of motors required not only simplifies the electrical portion of the project, but it also reduces overall budget costs. Brackets are installer-friendly and can overcome walls that are not perfectly flat. Coupled shades must be the same height and can easily be adjusted independently. Angled couplers available.
 

Product Specs

  • Compatible with 2” (51 mm) and 3” (76 mm) diameter rollers. Adjacent roller tubes must be the same diameter.
  • Brackets extend 2-1/2" (64 mm) from mounting surface to center line of roller and may be wall- or ceiling-mounted.
  • Coupler system should be installed in an existing pocket or a Type D Pocket. Fascia is available.
  • Coupled units may be installed in 4-5/8” (117 mm) Draper ceiling pockets. Fascia is available.
  • Only motor and crank-operated shades are suitable for coupling. FlexShade 2, Colossal, and LightBloc FlexShade may NOT be coupled!
  • Also available for Dual Roller Motorized FlexShade.

ANSI/WCMA A100.1-2022 Child Safety Standard

Effective June 1, 2024, in compliance with the updated ANSI/WCMA A100.1-2022 child safety standard, all Draper window shades operated by a bead chain will be furnished with a tensioned hold-down device that is permanently attached and partially disables the product if not installed correctly. This hold-down should be installed with tension on the chain.

All bead chain operated window shades will include:

  • Permanently installed spring-loaded tensioned hold-down device
  • Approved permanent warning label attached
  • Approved mechanical fasteners for the tension device included. Screws provided are not suitable for all mounting surfaces. The installer is responsible for secure mounting using appropriate hardware for the site conditions. Consult with contractors and builders as needed.

If the tension device is not installed with appropriate tension on the bead chain, the shade will be rendered partially inoperable. If installed properly, the tension device will prevent the creation of a hazardous loop and will maintain tension on the bead chain.

Approved permanent warning label
