Solar Screen Shades Block the Sun but Not the View

Screen shades, also known as solar shades, are the perfect blend of design and science. They control heat and light while often allowing you to maintain your view. What to look for is the “openness” factor, which refers to how much you are able to see through the shade. The higher the openness factor, the larger the weave of the fabric. So, a fabric with an openness factor of 10% will allow more light and heat to pass through while giving you more view-through versus a fabric with an openness factor of 5%. There are darker-colored fabrics, light-colored fabrics, and performance fabrics. Each fabric controls glare, heat, and natural light and provides UV protection. Hunter Douglas Designer Screen Shades are available in openness factors to meet almost any criteria.Continue Reading
