Everything you need to know about… solar screen shades

Thinking about installing solar screen shades? Here’s how they work, why sun protection matters, and where to install solar screen shades.

How solar screen shades work

Solar screen shades have a very specific purpose. Other window treatments – such as window treatments – are designed to control light levels and protect your privacy. But solar shades are a little different. They keep out bright sunlight and heat, without blocking your view or making the room too dark.

Why sun protection matters

We all love some sunshine. It’s great for our health and wellbeing. However, too much sun can be a problem.

Too much exposure to sunlight can cause premature ageing, skin problems and even some cancers. In the short term, too much bright light could give you a headache. And too much heat coming through the windows means that your air conditioning system has to work much harder.

Solar screen shades are the perfect compromise. You can still enjoy the sunny view of the outdoors, but you’ll keep out the worst of the heat and glare.

Where to install solar screen shades

Choosing solar shades depends on your personal preferences, as well as the design of your home. For example, if you have large south-facing windows in your home, then you may well need solar screen shades. And if you are especially light-sensitive, then solar shades may make you feel more comfortable.

You can choose solar shades that match your home décor – with white, cream, beige or even black transparent panels. They blend in with the window frame, so that you can enjoy all the benefits of solar shades with great design.
