COMMERCIAL SUN PROTECTION SHADES

THE MAIN DIFFERENCES BETWEEN SCREEN SHADES, DIM-OUT AND BLACKOUT SHADES

The main difference between light filtering vs blackout/room darkening shades is light control. Blackout shades use fabrics that blocks out 100% of all incoming light. Room darkening usually refers to any shade that uses fabrics that blocks between 95% and 99% of the light that enters your room. Treatment that block less than 95% of the light is typically referred to as light filtering.

Light filtering blinds and shades are created with semi-opaque fabrics or materials that allow only small amounts of light even when closed, while still preserving your privacy. Light filtering window treatments transform a full blast of sunlight into a soft, warm glow inside your home! However, a good blackout blind eliminates all incoming light and can completely block out or reduce the amount of outside noise entering your bedroom. This means you can sleep without any unwanted interruptions.


OFFICE BUILDINGS, RETAIL SHOPS AND RESTAURANTS


DIM-OUT FABRIC: Is light filtering, but provides an element of privacy when deployed where silhouettes are still visible. Dim out fabrics do not provide darkness and the amount of restricted light differs depending on a fabric’s composition and colour.

SCREEN FABRIC: Allows the maximum amount of light to filter into the room, while still maintaining a level of privacy. Used for when a partial view is required, while the blind is deployed. SCREEN SHADES come in various opacities ranging from 1%, 3%, 5%, 10%, 15% VIEWING OPTIONS.

BLACKOUT FABRIC: Has the maximum blockage of light with complete privacy, improved thermal efficiency and helps reduce noise entering the room when the fabric is deployed. This fabric features 0% light transmission and determined by how well it absorbs or reflects light, but that doesn’t mean zero light spots. If it's installed with a standard system within the recess, some lights may enter through the edges. To prevent this, we recommend using side channels, which aims to provide the most darkness.

SPC®, Solar Protective Coating, is applied to the reverse side of fabrics, which reflects heat and light more effectively than conventional materials.

A benefit of the SPC® coating is it helps conserve energy in both winter and summer. SPC® retains heat in a room by reducing thermal loss through the window during winter and summer days it reduces the heat build up through reflectance. As a result, energy bills will be reduced and it saves you more money.

An additional benefit of the SPC® coating is its ability to decrease glare, which is ideal for offices, schools and commercial spaces using computers or projectors. The coated blinds can be raised, lowered or adjusted to reduce glare, while still obtaining a view of the outside.

Use SPC® coated blinds in offices, hotels, healthcare sectors, care homes, educational institutions, nurseries, restaurants, conservatories and orangeries
