outside. But have you ever thought to keep them off your body when you’re inside? Today more and more people are anxious
to keep these dangerous rays out of their homes. The Carpet Shop, which is more than just floors, offers a simple and beautiful solution for this in solar shades.
Solar shades are a type of roller window shade and come in a range of screen openness factors, allowing you to choose how much light control you desire. Solar shades are the perfect choice for windows with a view. They reduce glare and improve energy efficiency by limiting solar heat gain and also block harmful UV rays.
Here are some of the benefits of solar shades:
o Because they substantially block UV rays, these shades will help reduce the fading of furniture and other room components.
And of course, your family will be safer as they will keep the sun’s unsafe rays off precious skin!
o Indoor sun shades are made from a mesh material that effectively reduce the absorption of heat through the window. They absorb and reflect solar heat before it even enters the window. So by limiting solar heat gain, these shades are exceptionally energy efficient and will help to lower your utility bills.
o They work in both the summer and winter. In the summer, they limit solar heat gain and in the winter, they help prevent radiant heat from escaping to the outside.
o Many shade and blind companies, such as Graber Blinds, havecommitted employees, processes, and products to improving the environment and passing clear benefits along to home owners. The goal is to minimize the overall environmental impact of the products by using recycled, renewable, and reduced content materials over virgin sources, reducing energy usage and waste, and improving air and water efficiency and indoor air quality.
o There’s no need to sacrifice esthetics for functionality. Solar shades come in a surprising range of colors and fabrics. Choose from numerous colors as well as stripes, patterns, and weaves that more closely resemble natural materials.
o Solar screens are available in screen openness factors from 3% to 14%. The smaller the number, the less 'open' the screen is. So for maximum view-through, choose a high % number. For greater privacy, choose small % numbers (3%-5%).
o Available options include cordless and motorized lifts. Consider cordless solar shades if you have small children in your home, as dangling cords can be dangerous. Plus, cordless shades offer a cleaner, uncluttered look. Motorized window shades provide the ultimate in convenience and are especially useful for high or hard to reach windows.
