What does openness mean on the solar screen shades? Which is more transparent a 3% or a 5% solar screen shade?
Solar screen shades are meant to be transparent, letting filtered light enter the room. Openness refers to how open or large the gaps are in the woven fibers of the screen fabric. The higher the percentage, the more open the screen fabric and the more light the solar shades allow to enter the room. For instance a 3% openness screen shade is a tighter weave fabric than a 14% openness screen shade, letting less light to enter. A higher percentage openness fabric is more transparent and lets more light enter, while obstructing less view.
