Solving Problems

Founded in 1979, Brading Specialty Shades has been developing, supplying and installing unique, high quality shading solutions for architects, designers, builders and home automation companies in Toronto and the surrounding markets of southern Ontario. Considered by many to be the premier supplier of shading systems designed for both high end residential and commercial applications, Brading designs shading solutions that maximize the advantage of natural illumination and aesthetic appearance while controlling other variables such as heat gain or loss, glare, damaging UV radiation, acoustics and privacy. The company has particular expertise in designing solutions focused on energy efficiency, motorization and integration with home automation systems, and difficult and complex installations such as skylights, solariums and unusually shaped and sized windows.

Brading’s unique combination of more than 30 years of field experience, extensive product and application knowledge, sophisticated installation equipment and access to a broad range of advanced and diverse world class shading control products enables the company to rapidly envision and create shading solutions that not only meet short term technical requirements but are designed to maximize long term customer enjoyment enduring many years of scrutiny, daily use and shifting seasonal demands.

Our ultimate goal has always been long term customer satisfaction and that is why we continue to capture and distil the accumulative wisdom of thousands of field installations with a diverse and broad range of trusted shading products. We use this hard-won knowledge to develop the right shading solution for the application and to accurately predict how it will perform over time. This is how we have earned the trust of our customers over the years and demonstrated our capabilities with world class installations across North America and the world.
