What are Solar Shades for Windows? Good Morning Sunshine!

Solar Shades See Through

What are Solar Shades?

Let us introduce you to window solar shades...and may I say, “you’re welcome!” Solar shades or solar blinds—pick your poison—are just what the doctor ordered if you want to curb the sun’s enthusiasm. How? Solar shades have a couple of super powers; outside of the obvious blocking of excessive light, they reduce glare, protect against 95% of those pesky UV rays, promote energy conservation (lowering your electric bill by an average of 30%) and perhaps amongst the most important they aid in making sure your belongings, like that antique dining table you inherited from your great grandmother, doesn’t fade from over-exposure.

Customized Window Treatments

All Shades Aren’t Created Equal! Customization is key at ShadeMonster, where your preferences are important to us. Available in a variety of colors and opacities; help us help you find the right shades for your home or office. Solar Shades,typically made from tightly woven vinyl, provide light and heat coverage as well as privacy depending on the weave which is measured in percentages. Used to measure openness, these percentages dictate how much light can filter through the shade. The lower the number, the tighter the weave. Here’s a tutorial: if you want to keep out the light and UV rays, go 1%, if you want more light, aim high and go with 10%. The same is true for heat control. Need help choosing what’s right for you? Don’t fret, we’re here to help! Contact us via phone, text or set up your free virtual consultation HERE and let our ShadeMonster specialists assist you. 

Solar Shades Provide Privacy

Another plus side to ShadeMonster solar roller shades is their ability to provide privacy. Some can even prevent people from seeing into your home. The tighter the weave the more protection from peepers so like above, if you want the most privacy, roll 1%. And speaking of rolling, our solar shades come with a variety of cords and valance options as well as a motorized control system so that you can open or close them by remote or even via app on your mobile device. Voila.
