As much as we enjoy sunlight streaming into our homes, it can damage wood floors, artwork, paint, wallpaper, fabrics, and furniture. While Solar Shades appear refined and collected, their efficient fabric is hard at work, quietly multi-tasking to make your environment enjoyable. They minimize glare, reduce optical strain, and block UV rays and heat gain, while still allowing you to see outside. Solar Shades help you create a comfortable, sophisticated sanctuary while preserving your connection to your surroundings.
REFLECT ON OPENNESS
Solar openness filters light and heat, and affects how clear your view to the outside is, too. Selecting the right solar shade is about more than looks—how much light comes through is important. Openness percentages tell you how much light and heat filter through, but they also express something more: visibility. Solar shade fabric is an open weave, allowing a view through the shades. Lower levels of openness—1% and 3%—are more densely woven and more opaque, offering more privacy and blocking more sun and heat. Shades with higher percentages of openness—10% and 14%—have more open space woven in the fabric, allowing a better view outside with less privacy.

With the fresh perspective of new designer fabrics and textures, you’ll turn to roller shades again and again.

CUSTOMIZE THE LIGHT
Roller Shades fabrics help you build the right ambience. Your specifications for privacy and light in each room might fluctuate based on how you and your loved ones use the room. That’s why opacity—the degree to which light is blocked by the roller fabric—is a critical consideration, allowing refined, precise control over how much light enters your rooms and how much privacy you have.
