Clothing stores, restaurants, and other shops can utilize drop shades to help keep the heat of the sun out while still allowing light to filter through. So what exactly are drop shades?
Drop shades are for either the interior or exterior of a building. Inside a business, a drop shade acts like a curtain, only it is not a solid fabric. Interior shading is a great way to help reduce the amount of solar heat gain your business gets and ultimately, help keep your business cool.
Drop shades that are used on the outside/exterior of a business are usually seen at restaurants. The screens are typically used in conjunction with an awning and provide side shade.
· Stylish Windows. The screens can be made to match the interior design of your shop. (Think colors or patterns).
· Added UV Ray Protection. If your business already has an awning, the drop screen can add a layer of protection from the sun’s harmful UV rays. The screens are designed with specialty fabrics that block out ultraviolet rays.
· Control. With a drop screen, you can control how much light comes through your window throughout the day. In the morning, you might want to roll up the screen. In the afternoon, you can utilize the drop screen to help provide some shade.
· Shade and Cooling. Drop screens help keep your business cool. The added shade helps reduce the amount of heat the interior of your business absorbs from sunlight, thus keeping the temperature inside cooler.
