Today we’re taking a look at solar shade opacity. Not even sure what that is? Stick around, and I’ll tell you about it.
Solar shades are a great choice where privacy isn’t a factor, but blocking light and glare are important. Solar shades will prevent UV rays from fading your furniture, floors, and other household items. They’ll also keep glare off your TV. They’re just like sunglasses for your windows!
Solar shades come in different levels of opacity, varying from 14%-1% openness.
Now what does that mean? A 1% shade will block 99% of the UV rays, while a 14% will block 86%, and so on.The lower the percentage, the tighter the weave, and the less light will be let through.
5% opacity is the most popular choice and it’s what you’ll see in most commercial and residential applications.
People who have a great view and don’t want window coverings at all often turn to solar shades as a way to protect their home from UV damage. As long as the opacity is at a high level, you’ll have a clear view through. The shades will also keep your home cooler ad more efficient because they’re blocking heat.
At the end of the day, solar shades are a great way to cover your windows, and keep your home protected by dangerous UV rays.
