FlexWave Light Shelf by Draper
Caution
1 Inspect all boxes to make sure you have received the correct product and
that there is no freight damage.
2 Open cartons carefully to avoid scratching the FlexWave.
3 The mounting surface must be strong enough to hold the FlexWave, and
keep it from twisting. The mounting surface must also be perfectly flat.
Use a rotational laser to ensure brackets are mounted level. Maximum
tolerance is +/- 1/8" over every 5' of length.
4 The FlexWave light shelf weighs approximately 2.81 lbs/ft. of length.
5 The FlexWave must be mounted level.
6 To avoid damage, the FlexWave should be one of the final items to be
installed in a finished interior.
7 Handle the FlexWave carefully during unpacking and installation. Take
care not to scratch or twist the light shelf.
8 The FlexWave ships with a protective film over the reflective upper
surface. Keep this protective film in place until installation is complete.
9 Do not use the FlexWave as a shelf. This unit is not designed to bear
additional weight.
10 Do not place undue pressure on the FlexWave. This could place too
much weight on the mounting brackets and could damage the light shelf,
brackets, or mounting surface.
11 Ensure that the wall beneath the FlexWave is free of obstructions that
could damage the unit when lowered for cleaning.
Please Note: For jamb (inside) mounted shades, the extensions and brackets
for the FlexWave should mount on the face (outside) of the window, as noted
in Fig. 3A. For face (outside) mounted shades, the extensions and brackets
for the FlexWave should mount on the outer sides of the shade brackets (see
Fig. 3B). Shelf may also be installed above the shade.
Mounting Brackets to Wall
1 Mark wall for placement of mounting brackets. The brackets must be
located so the FlexWave will be mounted perfectly level.
Please Note: The mounting surface must be strong enough to hold the
FlexWave, and must also be perfectly flat. If the mounting surface is not
flat or strong enough, it will be impossible to keep FlexWave units level.
2 Drill small starter holes in mounting surface.
3 Mount brackets using appropriate fasteners for surface (see Fig. 1). Hold
brackets level and plumb while mounting. Once brackets are mounted verify
they are plumb, level, and flush with the mounting surface. Bracket may
need to be shimmed to ensure it is level and plumb. The installer is
responsible for selecting mounting hardware appropriate for site
conditions.
Mounting screws
must be in outer
two holes. Inner
two holes are for
attachment of the
bracket extension
only.

4 If you are mounting the FlexWave in conjunction with a Draper window
shade, extensions are provided upon request. Mount the shades first.
Attach to extensions to mounting brackets using included fasteners, then
mount to wall (see Fig. 2). The installer is responsible for selecting
fasteners for securing brackets and extension to structure. They are
not included.

5 Please Note: This step may require more than one person, depending
on the size of the FlexWave. Install the FlexWave into the brackets.
Carefully hold the light shelf with one hand on the back extrusion and one
hand on the front of the unit. Hold approximately 30 degrees from vertical,
and sliding the mounting studs into the mounting slots (see Fig. 4). Make
sure they are set in place. Verify units are installed level. Caution: Take
care to avoid placing too much pressure or twisting the light shelf.

6 Once you have verified all units are level, lower the shelf and remove
protective film from reflective surface. Take care to avoid leaving
fingerprints. To lower the FlexWave for cleaning, carefully grasp the light
shelf with both hands, lift up slightly, and rotate so that the the mounting
studs slide into place as seen in Fig. 5. Do not allow the light shelf to bang
into the wall. Ensure that the wall beneath the FlexWave is free of
obstructions that could damage the unit when lowered for cleaning. Do not
place undue pressure on the FlexWave. This could place too much weight
on the mounting brackets and could damage the light shelf, brackets, or
mounting surface.

7 Slide Bracket Covers onto FlexWave Mounting Brackets until they snap into
place (see Fig. 6). Make sure Covers are fully engaged—they will help keep
the light shelf in place.
8 Return FlexWave light shelf to up (fixed) position. Carefully hold the light
shelf with one hand on the back extrusion and one hand on the front of the
unit. Carefully rotate the light shelf up, and slide the mounting studs into
the mounting slots. Make sure they are set in place. Caution: Take care to

Cleaning and Maintenance
Caution: Never use abrasive cleaners on the FlexWave.
For light dusting use a soft cloth. You may also use a static dusting cloth.
For a deeper cleaning to remove dirt or fingerprints, a mild soap may be
used. Take care when to not damage the shelf during cleaning.
As stated above, you should never use abrasive cleaners. If, however, the
above cleaning tips do not clean the light shelf, you may use a 50-50 mix
of isopropyl alcohol and water. Glass cleaner (without ammonia) or Simple
Green may also be used.
Caution: Throughout the cleaning process, take care to avoid placing
too much pressure on or pull down on the FlexWave. The lightweight
reflective surface may become twisted.
