Whether it’s for the home, a small commercial office, or for corporate headquarters, the right window treatments are a key design element in creating a professional and welcoming environment. 


Benefits of Sun Shades for Office Spaces

From the lobby where guests and clients are greeted to workspaces throughout the building, an office should be a comfortable and professional space to conduct business. The right window shades can create an optimum work environment. Here are just a few benefits of SheerWeave fabrics for office window shades.


  • Heat reduction and lower energy costs - Commercial office window treatments made with SheerWeave fabrics do an exceptional job of reducing solar heat gain and eliminating hot spots. When the right window treatments work to maintain more consistent temperatures, heating and cooling systems don’t have to work as hard.
  • Reduce glare and increase productivity - The sun’s reflection or glare on a computer screen can be taxing on employees’ eyes. SheerWeave fabrics help to reduce glare in workspaces, creating a more comfortable and productive work environment.
  • Increased privacy - SheerWeave fabrics, such as Style 4901 / 4903, are ideal for creating a more private business environment. Available in 1% and 3% openness factors, these fabrics offer increased daytime privacy while providing excellent outward visibility.

Window Treatments For Conference Rooms

Conference rooms in an office setting need to look professional and provide an atmosphere conducive to work. Maintaining comfortable temperatures and reducing glare on screens and devices contributes to the room’s function.

Phifer SheerWeave fabrics are ideal for office roller shade systems. SheerWeave not only blocks heat and glare but is an excellent choice in areas where noise may be an unwanted distraction.
