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 Compliance

If clutch-operated roller shades are installed in an environment where it's possible that young children will be present, they should comply with ANSI/WCMA A100.1, the Standard for Safety of Window Coverings.

If the shades that you purchase need to comply with this standard, it is your responsibility to inform Draper and opt-in to receive compliant products at time of order.

Spring-Loaded Cord Tension Device

Compliant window shades will include:

  • Pre-installed spring-loaded chain tension device with bead chain threaded through it
  • Approved permanent warning label attached
  • Approved mechanical fasteners for the tension device included

If the tension device is not installed properly, or becomes unattached from the mounting surface, 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. The tension device and label require tools to be removed.


The testing required by the WCMA for products to comply with safety standard A100.1 includes:

  • UV stability testing - AATCC Test Method 16 for UV Stability
  • Impact testing - ASTM D5420
  • Bead chain durability testing
  • Operation cycle testing - 3,000 cycles per the standard

Our spring loaded tension device passed the requirements of these tests.
