Last week I wrote about how solar shades improve the environment of an interior space in residential homes. As I mentioned, they are often desired in this area–the Santa Rosa, Ca area–because they do not obscure the beautiful views of the rolling hills and vineyards. In addition to view-through, they minimize heat and glare. These same benefits of solar shades in residences can work very well in commercial or professional spaces as well.
Here are the questions and issues that needed to be addressed:
- “Help! We need something that will keep the sun out of our offices and off the computers.”
- “The sun is heating up this area of our professional space and making it too uncomfortable to use.”
- And hands-down the deepest concern: “We have cardboard in our windows until the sun moves off the computer screens! Do you have a product that will fix this problem?”
With regard to solar shades for businesses, these are some of the concerns I frequently hear from customers. I have a customer now in Santa Rosa, CA who has a high-end restaurant and bar. They currently have wood blinds which always remain closed because they are too heavy to lift and the cords have become too tangled over the years to bother even tilting the slats to allow some light in. Consequently it is very dark inside their spaces and there certainly is no view. The interior space seemed claustrophobic and many people were not even aware it was a restaurant because the closed blinds seemed like a medical office! Ouch–that means lost business!
Solar Shades for Businesses:
Fortunately, for this business and other businesses, there is a perfect solution. We will install solar shades that will minimize heat and glare in this restaurant and bar. Solar shades for businesses are ideally suited to commercial spaces or professional buildings because they offer increased comfort for building occupants and guests without spoiling the view. They can also improve air quality since they have the Greenguard Indoor Air Quality Certification. This means they are low-chemical and particle emitting fabrics.
These solar shades come in various opacity levels which block from 99% to 85% of ultraviolet rays. Eighty-five percent opacity blocks 85% of UV rays while providing an excellent view to the outside.
If you have a need to reduce heat and glare, talk to your local dealer to get more information about how solar shades can improve your offices. You might be amazed at how solar shades can improve your work environment through shade and glare-reduction while preserving your view. Now you can have a much more open feeling in your business or professional space for all to enjoy!
