SHADES NEW YORK
Window Shades are among the most versatile of all window treatments. They add depth and utility to almost every other window treatment. Shades keep the room warm in winter and cool in summer. They protect occupants and furniture from harmful UV light. They come in a variety of opacities ranging from light filtering to room darkening, from sheer to semi sheer. Shades move up and down in two ways. Roller shades wrap the shade around a roller as it closes and folding shades arrange the fabric into gentle folds as it lifts. Shades are either motorized or non-motorized. Non motorized shades raise up by several child safe cord systems, by hand, or by a wooden wand. Shades are energy efficient. As much as 40% of the home’s heat escapes through the windows. Shades provide varying amount of window insulation, and protect the home from energy loss.
Solar shades are designed to protect the home or office from the harmful effects of sunlight, while preserving the view of the outdoors. By reducing heat transference solar shades are energy efficient, preserving heat in winter and cool in summer. Solar shades minimize annoying glare from the Sun, making work in an office with Sun exposure bearable. And unlike blackout shades, solar shades preserve a dramatic view of the outdoors.
