Solar Shades are the optimum solution for a client who wants to control sun glare and heat gain through their windows while maintaining their beautiful window views. While lowered over the window Solar Shades allow the viewer to see through the solar screen shade fabric to observe the outside world while blocking the majority of UV rays and sun glare. Most solar shadings are manufactured on a clutch roller system and are operated either by a durable chain loop or with a remote controlled motor. Because of the light weight of the solar fabrics, solar screen shades can be manufactured quite large to fit oversized windows.
Our consultants are experienced in assisting our clients in selecting the weave density of the solar fabrics for their shadings. The tighter the weave of the heat resistant synthetic fibers the smaller the openings are for light to pass through the fabric. Therefore, a fabric with a very tight weave will block the majority of light coming through the fabric, giving rooms a secluded and relaxed feeling with the view-out looking “smoked”. A more open weave allows more rays of light to enter the room. This delivers an open and airy feel to the atmosphere of the room and has a less noticeable effect on the view out the window.Together our consultants and clients weight out the options of balancing the appropriate atmosphere of the room with the degree of light control, UV protection and privacy.
