Window Shades

JBRND brings decades of aviation innovation to aircraft window shades. Our electric SyncDrive and manual SlideDrive window shade systems have virtually eliminated failures typical of older window shade technology vastly reducing or eliminating the need for repairs. These Window Shade systems can be customized for any look in any aircraft.

you’ve never seen shades like this

Made from lightweight composites, our manual SlideDrive and electric SyncDrive window shade units utilize our exclusive custom belt system. This means there are no strings incorporated into the build process. With a means between failure of more than 1 million cycles, these windows shade units will outlive any aircraft. Our aircraft windows are available in single, double or triple configurations. We make both standard and cassette style windows. The standard “framed” aircraft windows are fully visible with an outside frame. Our cassette type aircraft windows are partially visible and mounted to the back of the sidewall window cutout.
