Selecting the right blinds for solar shading

Selecting the right blinds for solar shading

A breath of fresh air – External blinds are an eco friendly alternative to air conditioning and now a part and parcel of modern eco buildings that are heavily glazed and highly insulated. Whether designing a new build, renovation or extension, it is guaranteed to include large expanses of glazing that provide an unhindered view out, creating a feeling of openness and endless space along with allowing a room to flood with natural daylight, all important factors for well-being and the enjoyment from a space.

However, glazed areas of any description are the single biggest cause of excessive solar heat gain and unwanted glare in both residential and commercial buildings, resulting in a space that is uncomfortable and unbearable to be in - too hot and too bright.

Caribbean Blinds range of innovative external fabric shading systems are the most effective way to regulate solar heat and light. By creating a physical barrier between the suns energy and glazing, upto 96% of the incoming shortwave radiation is blocked, as the majority of the suns energy is either reflected, in the case of lighter blind fabrics (hence why cricketers wear white) or absorbed by the shading material (darker colours).
