olar Shades are some of the most versatile window coverings out there. Their primary purpose is to serve as a shield against solar heat gain, which helps to keep your energy costs down. Aside from being energy-saving, solar shades also reduce glare from the sun, making them perfect window covering solutions for rooms with televisions and computer monitors, such as family rooms and home offices. Solar shades provide excellent protection from the sun while preserving your view. Often referred to as “sunglasses” for your windows, their ability to cut the glare makes them ideal for media rooms, studies, or any sun-facing room where sun control is desired. Solar shades protect from the sun in 4 ways: they protect furniture from damaging Ultra Violet (UV) rays, reduce glare, diffuse light, and help control heat gain. For complete privacy, consider a Roller Shade instead of a Solar Shade.
