The use of solar shading is an integral part of Passive Solar Design and other sustainable approaches to building design.  It can reduce the need for heating or air conditioning by maintaining a more even temperature despite varying climatic conditions; and can also cut the amount of energy required for lighting, by admitting more light during overcast conditions for example.

Solar shades provide excellent protection from the sun while preserving your view. Often referred to as “sunglasses” for your windows, their ability to cut the glare makes them ideal for media rooms, studies, or any sun-facing room where sun control is desired. Solar shades protect from the sun in 4 ways: they protect furniture from damaging Ultra Violet (UV) rays, reduce glare, diffuse light, and help control heat gain. For complete privacy, consider a Roller Shade instead of a Solar Shade.
