About Solar Shades

Hunter DouglasSolar shadesSolar Shades, made from specially designed woven mesh fabrics, cut down on excessive sun glare while offering fade protection to fabric window coverings, furniture, and rugs. The shades are often sold as roller blinds that zip up to wrap around a roller, or , they can be made in a fold-up roman style. The fabric weave allows diffused light through while filtering out harmful UV rays. For greater sun-blocking ability, select a tightly woven mesh fabric in a light color. Darker meshes and open weaves will allow more sunlight through. Since all solar shades are semitransparent during the day and night, traversing panels can be added for privacy

How Wide Can A Shade Be?

Shades that are extra long and wide can be hard to raise and lower, which creates stress on the cording system overroman shade in freedom nh time. Use these guidelines for the best results
  • Flat Roman shades can be made comfortably for windows up to 72 inches wide
  • Hobbled, or waterfall, shades featuring continuous folds are heavier when unfurled and work best on windows up to 60 inches wide
  • Shades that are relaxed at the bottom edge and feature one swoop when pulled up look best up to 60 inches wide
  • If using a blackout lining, the shade will be heavier and harder to pull up, so use a stronger cord.
  • Shades for extra-wide windows can be made shorter than the window length. Less length means less weight on the drapery cording

Fabric Considerations For Roman Shades

The flat surface and boxy style of Roman shades are a perfect place to display an unusual print or textured fabric.
If selecting a toile scene or distinct print, estimate how much of the window will be covered when the shade is raised, then fiet the print comfortably within this area and place the more visually pleasing motif in the center. Light to midweight sheers, silks, polyesters, jacquard weaves, and broadcloths work well for shades of all styles. Heavier upholstery fabrics and canvas also can be used as long as you keep to simple, flat shade styles

Selecting The Right Lining

Not all linings are created equal. For lasting durability and performance of the shade. This is all you need to know!
  • DRAPERY LININGS:  Be sure to use a drapery lining that is sun and rain-resistant to protect the decorator fabric from light and moisture damage. Most draperies are light-filtering, meaning that some light will show through. Dark, heavy fabrics will block the sun better than those lighter in color and weight
  • BLACKOUT LININGS: A blackout lining has a heavy rubberized feel and make holes appear on the shade where the cording rings are stitched. Look for one of the newer softer blackout fabrics for better results. Hold the decorator fabric against the sample of blackout lining and up to the light to check for show-through
  • INSULATED LININGS: Specially made to block the elements, thermal linings help defray energy costs
  • INTERLININGS: If the decorator fabric is silk, the shade must be interlined with a mid-to-heavyweight flannel to prevent the sun fading and fraying the silk fibers. Interlinings are sandwiched between the decorator fabric and drapery lining
