What are solar shades?
Solar shades are roller shades. The difference between a solar shade and conventional roller shades is the fabric choice. Solar fabric is designed to reduce infrared heat gain and glare. As with all roller shades, the fabric also determines the level of daytime privacy as well as the view when open.
The benefit of very large windows in a home or office are often the views, but the downside is the cost to cool the space. Even if your space is not comprised of large windows, all of us know that any area with windows providing a direct east or west exposure can become extremely warm. Rooms with large windows and direct exposure need extra protection from the sun. You not only save money through lower cooling costs but by reducing glare you reduce eye strain. If you're a business owner, reduced eye strain in combination with a more comfortable environment can actually improve your employees’ productivity.
Solar shades can reduce glare, solar heat gain and provide a level of daytime privacy but one fabric can not accomplish all three together. Prioritizing your needs will help you select the perfect solar shade for your home or office. Your choice of the density of the fabric's weave and the color will determine the level of privacy provided and the reduction in both glare and infrared heat achieved.
