Solar Shade.... fabrics provide energy-efficient solutions
Solar Shades or Screen Shades have light-filtering qualities diffuse light, reduce glare and help control solar heat gain to make any room a more comfortable environment. As Screen Shades filters and diffuses light, it also helps reduce the fading of textiles and interior furnishings. Window treatments made with Solar Shade fabrics provide energy-efficient solutions by reducing the amount of solar heat gain. While lighter color fabrics reflect light and illuminate the interior with just the right amount of light, darker solar shade fabrics provide a superb view to the outside and absorb light making them ideal for viewing computer and television screens.
The openness of a fabric refers to the weave or mesh structure and determines the amount of heat and light that enters a room. A more open fabric allows more heat and light to penetrate through, while tighter meshes block more heat and light. Screen solar shade fabrics are offered in a variety of openness factors to allow optimal light in commercial buildings or provide more privacy for such applications as hospitals and doctors offices.
