Closures for Type D Pockets or Wall Clip

Draper offers three closure panels for use with Pocket D Headboxes or wall clips depending on the size of the pre-existing pocket. Larger closure panels will require field notching for chain clearance.
  • Extrusion comes in 12’ 3" (374 cm) long sections and must be cut to fit the space available. Draper can also cut to size.
  • Wall clips (with or without tile lip) accommodate 1-½” (38 mm), 3” (38 mm), or 5” (127 mm) panels, depending on the size of the pre-existing pocket.
  • The 1-½” (38 mm) panel accommodates manual FlexShades® mounted in a Type D Pocket Headbox. No notching required for chain clearance.
  • The 3” (76 mm) panel accommodates motorized FlexShades® mounted in Type D Pocket Headbox to give maximum coverage.
  • The 5” (127 mm) closure is for use with wall clip only.

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.

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.

Testing

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

Draper's spring loaded tension device passed the requirements of these tests.
