What are the advantages of solar shades and How are they measured?
Solar shades are very sophisticated products and demanded by those who want to combine the entry of natural light into their home and the maintenance of a minimum of privacy.

The advantages of the solar shades
Let’s talk about the advantages of roller solar shades. These are high-quality technical fabrics made up of PVC-coated polyester threads. Fiberglass is also a material that often appears in these solar shades. Consequently, a bonding lattice is formed which resembles a mesh. The surface, therefore, will be full of voids and pores, which will be outlined by this sophisticated composition.
The solar shades that can be configured with these techniques are different. Products such as: screen roller shades, custom Japanese screen panels, canvases, awnings, and vertical blinds screen. All of them stand out for bringing you the following benefits. Take note:
– Betting on the screen fabric implies, depending on the degree of opening that we will explain later, being able to choose how much natural light you want to enter your house and to what extent the interior of your rooms will be seen from the outside.
– They are very resistant fabrics. They have great durability and are very easy to maintain. Keep in mind that you will be able to simply wash them with a cloth and soap.
– The possibility of regulating the amount of natural light that enters from the outside supposes an important saving in air conditioning, since you will not have to use its equipment more than necessary.
– As the sunlight will be filtered, you will avoid the always annoying effects of glare, such as those that occur in televisions.
– The protection provided by this filter helps ensure that interior items such as furniture or tapestries do not deteriorate or discolor.
The degree of opening of screen blinds
The opening factor of these solar shades will depend on the percentage in which their filters are present, those holes or pores that we indicated earlier. Depending on the lesser or greater presence of the joints of the threads, the entry of light and the degree of privacy will be regulated.
On the other hand, remember that the degree of opening will depend on various factors: the density of the solar shades fabric, its thickness and the color. In this sense, light colors provide greater opacity, while dark colors allow solar radiation to pass better.
In the following lines we review with you what each of these degrees of openness contributes. Keep reading:
In a strict sense, it is not a screen solar shades fabric. As it is completely opaque, it does not let in light nor does it allow the interior of the room to be seen from the outside. Darkness will be the general trend at any time of the day. It is a highly valued product by those who, by living close to the prying eyes of their neighbors, prioritize preserving their privacy over the entry of natural light into the house.
Minimal interior clarity and visibility from the outside quite reduced. However, it is an interesting opening factor for those who want to avoid those reflections that we had mentioned before.
It significantly increases the clarity that the rooms will receive and, on the other hand, the transparency that will be noticed from the outside will continue to be low, so privacy is still correctly guaranteed.
Ideal for those who are looking for the middle ground. Good external visibility and sufficient medium transparency.
When you choose solar shades with an opening degree of 10% or higher, you will obtain maximum transparency and external visibility will be optimal. These are the appropriate products for those who, for example, do not have snooping neighbors in the vicinity, so they can optimize the entry of light without worrying about maintaining their privacy.
How are solar shades measured?
Finally, we have reserved a section to briefly explain how you have to place one of these solar shades over a window.
First of all, you have to check if there are free spaces around the window. Both across and below and above. If there are gaps on both sides, you have to add 10 cm of the product for each one. In total, 20 cm. The same can be said about the free space below and above. In the event that there is only free space on one side, it will be necessary to reserve 5 cm more solar shades for that same.
If the window is embedded between walls, 0.5 cm is deducted for each side. In addition, you must also consider the possibility of installing on the ceiling, the wall, or saving a blind box, which requires specific solutions depending on the cases and dimensions.
In short, solar shades give you design and functionality.
