Motorized shades are essential for commercial spaces with expansive windows. While sunlight invigorates the workplace, it can also decrease productivity with glare and over-heating, while prematurely fading fabrics and artwork. Regulate daylight in commercial spaces with a shading solution designed to optimize comfort and lower energy costs. Systems can also be automated and integrated with other controls for additional savings and comfort. Shades block and reflect direct sunlight during the day to reduce the demand on air conditioning systems during the summer. Certain fabrics are dual-sided with a white or silver backing to deflect more sunlight. In colder months, lowered shades can provide an insulating barrier to keep the building warmer. By automatically adjusting electric light levels in response to daylight, electric lighting needs can also be reduced.
