TOP 10 BENEFITS OF SOLAR SHADES
HOW DO SOLAR SHADES WORK?
Solar Shades are sold based on the number of UV Rays they allow into your home.
When you see “5% Openness” solar shades, that means the shade is blocking out 95% of UV Rays, while allowing 5% percent of UV rays in your home. Solar window shades (also called sun-shades or screen shades) are roller shades crafted with a specially designed fabric that’s woven just tight enough to protect against UV rays while still optimizing your views.
Solar shades have an open weave fabric that allows light and air to pass through. During the day you can see out but passers-bys can’t see in. However, at night the effect is reversed. If privacy is not a concern for you because you live in a remote area, solar shades might be a good fit for you.
Available at the following openness: 1% 3% 5% 10% 14% and light filtering.
