Read on to learn about this product, and be sure to contact one of our representatives for more details.
The Science Behind How They Work
Skip this paragraph if you just want to learn about the product itself, but if you want to understand some of the science-y stuff, read on! Solar optical properties in a fabric distinguish it from other fabrics. Those properties include (Ts) Solar Transmittance, which is the amount of total solar energy that passes through the fabric. The larger the number, the more solar energy passes through. (Rs) Solar Reflectance, which is the amount of solar energy/heat that is reflected away. The higher the number, the more solar heat is reflected. (As) Solar Absorption, which is the absorption of light and heat. A low number means the shade absorbs very little solar energy, which allows heat into your space. (Tv) Visible Light Transmittance, which is the amount of visible light that comes through. The higher the number, the less light there is coming in.
Blocking the Sun While Keeping the View
Hunter Douglas solar screen shades are designed with openness factors, which define how large the weave is. The higher the percentage, the more you can see through the shade. At the same time, that means more light and heat will pass through (it will have a low As number and a high Ts number). Designer Screen Shades from Hunter Douglas offer high-performance fabrics. These fabrics go above and beyond standard screen fabrics with enhanced glare, solar, and natural light control while providing UV protection.
Where to Use Screen Shades
Screen shades aren’t known for offering privacy, especially at night. With the shade down and your lights on, people from outside can see in. So these shades are best for non-private areas like sunroom, pool room, patio, or kitchen.
