If you struggle with sun glare and regulating temperature in your property, you might consider fitting screen fabric electric blinds. Screen fabric is semi-transparent, offering excellent shading and protection without blocking the view and still allowing lots of natural light into interior spaces. Here are five great benefits of electric blinds made with screen fabric. 

Reduce Glare

Whether you want to enjoy watching TV without annoying sun glare or look at a computer screen without squinting, screen fabric electric blinds are a great way to reduce the amount of light interrupting your work or play. Whether you choose a 1%, 3% or 5% transparency material, screen fabrics can significantly reduce sun glare, making your leisure or work activities more comfortable. Choose a darker colour to maximise the effect. 

Enjoy the View

One of the main benefits of screen fabric electric blinds is that you can reduce sun glare without blocking the view. With varying transparency weights – 1%, 3% or 5% – you can choose how see-through the fabric is and thus how much of your view you obscure. Furthermore, darker coloured materials will enhance visibility through the fabric whilst absorbing lots of light.

Let in Natural Light

Screen fabric electric blinds are ideal if you want to reduce sun glare and create privacy without making a room feel too dark. If you want your room to feel bright and airy, even when the blinds are down, choose a light coloured fabric; white-based tones will reflect light into the room to make it appear more illuminated. A higher transparency percentage will also allow more light to filter through the material. 

Protect Furnishings

UV damage is a common problem in rooms with large windows, bifold doors or roof lanterns. With lots of sunlight flooding the room, sofas, flooring, tables, cushions, and rugs can fade and even degrade. It’s tempting to block out the light completely with standard blinds or curtains, but semi-transparent screen fabric creates an excellent protective barrier for your interior furnishings without blocking out all of the light. 

Stay Cool

South-facing rooms with big windows can sometimes feel very hot, especially in the summer or during the middle of the day when the sun is at its most intense. A screen fabric in a light colour will help reflect light away from the window without blocking out all of the views or making the room feel too dark.
