Screen fabrics convert sunlight into energy based on the color of fabric. View through is a characteristic of screen fabrics. The view through of a screen fabric is dependent on the openness factor, color, and lighting. Openness is the weave density of screen fabric affecting the visibility, privacy, glare control, and UV blockage.
BLOCK THE SUN, NOT THE VIEW!
When you need protection from the sun’s harmful rays, but still want to maintain your view, solar shades are a natural fit. Solar shades are a type of roller shade with reflective, see-through fabric. Designed to optimally manage UV rays, glare and heat, solar shades perform particularly well in commercial office space, or areas of the home where little privacy is required.
