Designer Window Shade Fabric

Roller shade fabrics can be found in a broad range of colors, patterns, openness factors and solar heat gain properties that protect a space from harmful UV rays. They also contribute to reduced cooling and energy costs while delivering a refined finish to any space.


However, there’s so much more than aesthetics and openness factors to consider. The right window shade fabric can maximize daylighting benefits allowing for excellent outward visibility – even when shades are lowered. When specified correctly, roller shade fabrics can contribute to improved wellness, productivity and engagement of a home or building's occupants.
