How to Choose Solar Fabric Shades

Solar fabric shades are an excellent choice for light and temperature control in offices and homes.

Solar shades can reduce uncomfortable glare for workers, while still allowing ambient sunlight and view to the outside. Or if complete darkness is required, blackout shades provide the perfect solution while providing maximum blockage of UV radiation from the sun.

Choosing your window shade fabric depends on your particular needs and we offer a complete range of transparencies that are sure to fit your requirements. Motorization can be added to easily change shade requirements throughout the day.

We fabricate custom made shades and offer pre-manufactured roller shades with solar and blackout fabric options. Wide selection of colors, all fire-retardant and environmentally friendly.
