Roll-up Window Shades Protect Homes Against Sun’s Harmful Rays
Sheer Weave Roller Shades with insulating properties help keep homes cool in the summer. Roller Shades are woven shades in which the openings in the fabric allow for scenic views while blocking the sun’s harmful rays. Roller Shades come with varying openness levels from 3% up to 14%. The openness factor refers to the ratio of open areas within the shear weave fabric. Sheer weave shades are excellent at providing protection from harmful UV rays while not blocking the view. The lower the number, the tighter the weave. Roll-up window shades offer excellent to superior UV ratings when closed.
Roller Shades have taken the place of vinyl shades that used to adorn workplaces. No longer do workplaces have to settle for style-less shades. New weaves and colors give a finished, clean look to a workspace, making it feel more professional.
Not only do Sheer Weave Roller Shades benefit the look of the office, they also benefit employees. Window shades that roll-up allow offices to cut the sun’s glare that can strain eyes during peak hours, but can be easily opened during the rest of the day so employees don’t feel cut off from the outside world. Because of their see-through properties, roll-up window shades can be left down all day and with lighter colors, actually help brighten a room.
Roller shades aren’t only intended for offices. In homes, these window treatments protect furniture and art from UV rays and can help cut energy costs by blocking heat from the sun and reducing the need for air conditioning.
Sheer Weave Roller Shades offer insulation against heat, helping keep homes and offices cool and reducing the need for air conditioning. These roll-up window shades can be used inside and out. The Sheer Weave Roller Shades are made for larger windows, making them ideal for French doors or oversized windows and work spaces. The minimum order size is 12” X 12” and the maximum is 95” x 120”.
Roll-up window shades come in a variety of colors that include chocolate, mushroom sand, pale grey, pearl white and sand dollar. Some companies offer a two-day turn around time for colors that are in stock, making these roller shades a perfect option decorating deadlines.
Sheer weave shades have been popular in southern states for a while now, where the sun is year-round, but are gaining popularity in northern climates as they can be paired with drapes for extra insulation.
With the summer sun getting stronger every day, now is the perfect time to install roll-up window shades. Sheer Weave Solar Shades insulate against the sun and offer great views while protecting furniture, artwork and our sensitive eyes.
