Commercial grade windows don’t mean commercial grade sun protection. Most often in fact the commercial windows can tend to be an even bigger source of heat gain than in a typical residential home since they cover more of the building. Installing commercial window sun screens can not only save money but it also makes for more comfortable work spaces, waiting areas, or showrooms.
Whether its a doctors office that needs sunscreens to keep particular rooms cooler or an office suite looking for more privacy from neighboring foot traffic, solar window screens can be a perfect solution to many issues. Solar screens allow you to see out with impeccable outward visibility while actually blocking the view from the outside looking in. The higher percentage screen blockage like 90-95% the more privacy you can achieve for your commercial space.
If the ever shining Arizona sun is the primary concern for your commercial windows, the solar window screens offer the best possible protection from the glare and heat of the sun aside from planting a 30 foot tall shade tree and a lot more cost effective. In many cases we have seen commercial window sun shades pay for themselves in as little as a year. Solar window screens block out the heat and UV Rays better than tint, Low-E windows, and interior shades and they look great too!
Commercial buildings are not always initially built to be efficient. This is often the case in some of the warehouse districts where the build-out of offices are within the same space as a warehouse. When windows on these buildings are facing East or West, they can transfer a ton of heat into these inefficient office spaces and make it nearly unusable. Solar screens are an inexpensive solution to help significantly reduce the heat transfer from those windows.
Many commercial buildings also have skylights. Skylights have shown to be extremely inefficient due to their direct view of the sun as well as the typically thinner glass or plastic used to insulate and allow light in. Solar screens can be a solution for commercial skylights as well. They block out a significant amount of sun while still filtering in light as initially intended.
