All About Screen Shades For Your Houston Home or Business


Are you considering solar screens for your Houston home or business? If so, you’ll want to know all about them.

Imagine if you were a fabric manufacturer and you were asked to create a fabric that follows certain requirements. The fabric must:

  1. Be a flexible fabric
  2. Be able to be variably colored or patterned -for design purposes
  3. Block out up to 99% of harmful UV rays
  4. Let in sunlight
  5. Be transparent
  6. Control glare
  7. Block out heat
  8. Be easy to keep clean
  9. Be durable enough for daily commercial use
  10. Be environmentally friendly

Taking a look at the list. It almost seems as if several of the requirements oppose each other. For instance, #2: Be able to be colored or patterned, yet be see through? Block out 99% of UV rays, yet let sunlight in?

It sounds impossible, doesn’t it? Well, it’s not. This type of fabric is widely available today in the form of solar screens. You may already be looking at solar screens in Houston for your home or business because you’ve heard how they help block sunlight.

Solar blocking fabric is used most effectively in solar screen shades. You will see it mostly in commercial or public applications, where it is commonly used on windows of offices, restaurants, hospitals or clinics, schools, retail shops, malls, hotels, and more.

Solar Screen Protection

Solar screens are a very practical choice because they reduce energy consumption and protect furnishings, merchandise, and people from harmful UV sun rays while still letting in light. Plus, many of the fabrics available for the shades are transparent, allowing you to see through them for the outdoor view.

Going Green With Solar Screens

They are naturally a green product, simply because by design they are helpful with energy efficiency and control. But also several of the fabric choices are green by terms of what they are made of. Some can even give you better air quality control indoors. Some fabrics can be recycled or are made from recycled fabrics.
