What You Need to Know About Window Shades

February 8, 2012

Window shades can be made using several different types of fabrics. For those looking to make their homes environmentally friendly, shades can be made using green fabric that is PVC-free and 100% recyclable. Shades are also available in Microban fabrics. These shades are equipped with antimicrobial protection to inhibit the growth of stain-causing bacteria, mold, and mildew. Homeowners interested in allowing sunlight into a room without letting heat in can opt for solar screen fabrics. Solar screen fabrics filter sunlight reducing heat absorption while also preventing heating and cold loss without blocking the outside view. For complete privacy or darkness for sleeping, choose window shades made from blackout fabrics.

Window shades can be controlled using several types of technology ranging from a simple chain operated clutch control to motorized operations.
