Anyone that has ever been to a restaurant, banking center, doctors office, etc. has experienced the benefit of solar shades. These shades have always been a popular product in these types of commercial applications. Solar shades block UV rays (heat) while maintaining the outside view. These window shades are available in different transparencies depending that balance the level of light allowed through and the clarity of the outside view. The last few years, however, solar shades are becoming increasingly more common in residential applications. Solar shades now come in a variety of decorative hem and valence options, making the window shades more suitable for household decor. Seeing that our southern summers are getting hotter and hotter year after year, solar shades are definetly here to stay!
