Solar Shades

Solar Shades are movable semi-transparent coverings to windows that block out most of the Sun without obstructing the view. They have several benefits:

  • Reduced solar gain within a room, making it easier to keep at a comfortable temperature;
  • Reduction in light glare
  • Privacy - as often those outside cannot see in through the shade.
Shades can either be movable (like a roller blind) or fixed.
