Draper’s Audio Visual Products and the Environment

We’re proud to continue this tradition with our new Ecomatt XT700E viewing surface, the world’s first Cradle to Cradle CertifiedCM – Silver Projection Screen Viewing Surface. Find out more about how combining daylighting techniques using solar control to strategically conserve energy and projection screens with GREENGUARD certified fabrics to improve air quality can contribute to the overall energy savings and indoor air quality in today’s buildings.

Draper’s Window Shade Products and the Environment


Leading the way in innovative fabrics that help manage energy costs

In today’s world of conservation and rising energy costs, it is important to keep a handle on your building’s energy consumption. One of the easiest ways to do this is with the use of the sun’s natural light. Natural sunlight provides a building with free light and keeps it warm at the same time. Draper continues to add innovative new materials to our line up to help manage energy costs. For the first time ever, KOOLBLACK® technology combines many features to enhance design and maximize energy savings. Sheerweave® made with Dow ECOLIBRIUM™ offer a renewable alternative that is phthalate-free.
