Company profile

Brading Specialty Shades was founded on the belief that there was always a better way to do things. The company’s founder, Ed Bonisch, began the company with a simple value proposition – “continually strive to develop better methods to solve problems associated with glass and light”. In our quest to deliver on this promise, to provide better and more effective means of controlling light, UV rays, heat, and glare, we started to partner with the best window coverings suppliers in the industry including such innovative companies as Lutron and Silent Gliss. Brading has grown from its humble beginnings in 1979 to where it is now considered by many to be the premier shading solutions provider in the area. We consistently serve the industry’s leading architects, designers, builders and home automation companies in the GTA and throughout southern Ontario including Haliburton, Muskoka, the Kawarthas and other popular cottage country destinations.

In the pursuit of Ed’s promise to develop better methods of solving problems associated with glass and light, Brading Speciality Shades began to develop unique products to fill certain voids in the marketplace and attain unmatched levels of customization. These unique products and services now fall under the umbrella of our sister company Brading Fabrication Ltd., and are available to quality conscious window coverings resellers across Canada and the USA.
