An unprotected skylight can generate intense heat and glare. The Skylight FlexShade® is the ideal remedy. Inconspicuously recessed into the skylight opening, a Skylight FlexShade provides solar and UV control to protect people and furnishings. Draper recommends lighter color fabrics and hardware to absorb less heat. Venting space between shade and glass highly recommended. Choose motorized or crank—both are a breeze to install and are engineered to be durable and reliable.
