Choose sheer shade fabrics when you want a maximized view combined with protection from U/V exposure and heat gain. Sheer shade fabrics are available in a range of openness factors, which measure the openness of the weave of the fabric. For example, a 3% openness factor would be a tighter, more opaque weave than a 10%.
Privacy fabrics are more opaque than sheer shadeâ„¢ fabrics and are designed to provide a slight translucent glow without view in or out. These fabrics are commonly used in bathrooms, bedrooms and other private parts of the home as well as executive offices or private conference areas.
