Designing an AV Escape

The summer is in full swing and your clients want to be backyard-bound. Keep in mind these cool outdoor entertainment solutions for the steamy days and nights ahead:

Draper Motorized Exterior FlexShades
Draper’s Exterior FlexShades offer protection for your windows, while preventing most solar energy from entering your home for maximum solar heat gain reduction. This also helps protect furnishings and floor coverings from fading.

Motorized Exterior FlexShades can be quickly and quietly positioned with numerous control options, or can be integrated into existing home automation systems. Heavy-duty cable guides or side channels secure the shade fabric against wind and weather, with a weather- and insect-resistant solid aluminum headbox.

Draper Exterior FlexShades are also available with crank or clutch operation. Exterior FlexShades are offered in a wide range of fabric choices.

Designed to deliver signature Klipsch sound and extend your living area to the garden, pool, patio and more, the AWR-650-SM speaker has over six decades of audio experience in one weatherized package. Available in a granite or sandstone finish that will blend seamlessly with its surroundings, the AWR-650-SM features a durable UV-resistant enclosure so you can enjoy clean, clear Klipsch sound all season long.

Polk Audio Atrium 5c
Polk Audio’s new Atrium 5c is designed specifically for residential and commercial custom installation specialists who need to add great sound to any environmentally challenging application, with a versatile transformer that allows five different tap settings for distributed line sound systems.

The 5c is a compact, two-way speaker featuring a 5” woofer with a mineral polymer cone, set below a .75” anodized aluminum tweeter.
