Solar Shades and the Pandemic

Not only has the Covid-19 pandemic forced millions of Americans to quarantine at home but it has resulted in more people working from home on a permanent basis.

This emerging reality has led many to ponder how to make their homes and home offices more comfortable, usable, and safe. While some can work well from home, others may feel claustrophobic and isolated.

Transparent solar shades and film shades more vital than ever. These shades are like sunglasses for your windows. They allow you to see outside while providing daytime privacy. They maintain the open feeling of a window and make rooms feel brighter while screening out harmful UV rays.

An improper lighting environment can cause fatigue. Both solar shades and film shades allow you to control the amount of sunlight you want filtered. They cut the glare, allowing you to see monitors and tv screens more clearly.

Because they significantly reduce the ultraviolet, they protect interior furnishings from fading.

Inevitably, the increased time at home will affect utility bills. Solar shades and film shades are extremely energy efficient. By reducing heat gain in the summer and cold in the winter they shrink utility bills. They increase room comfort by maintaining an even temperature, eliminating hotspots.

Finally, in this time of increased vigilance regarding health and safety, you can rest assured that solar shade fabrics are anti-bacterial, anti-fungal, and meet Greenguard certification for clean air, for your entire family.
