SignGrafx Printed Custom Window Shades can save you money.
I. Reduce light in your location without making it excessively dark
Unlike standard roll-up window shades, SignGrafx Printed Custom Window Shades are produced on a lightweight scrim material that is white and somewhat translucent as opposed to a dark opaque material. Even when the Printed Custom Window Shades is rolled down you will still have a good amount of light penetrating to your space. Our Printed Custom Window Shades are 40% open which means that 60% of the harmful UV rays are blocked from entering your space. Because they are light in color from the inside you will only reduce the light coming through the window by about 40%. But it is different for the amount of heat that is transferred through our Printed Custom Window Shades . Because heat rises, light that hits our Printed Custom Window Shades from outside is bent through the perforations of the Printed Custom Window Shades which causes heat to be absorbed by the material of the Printed Custom Window Shades and because of its white interior color layer the heat gets reflected to the outside again. This can help reduce your interior heat-load significantly to save you money.
UV light penetrating through windows can wreak havoc on all sorts of interior fixtures and materials that are produced without using uv protection. Soft-goods like upholstered furniture, leather furnishings, Stained woods etc. are all prone to fading from exposure to UV light. SignGrafx Printed Custom Window Shades will reduce this exposure by 40% which means that your furniture and fixtures will last a lot longer.
III. Lower Utility Bills
When you install SignGrafx Printed Custom Window Shades you can save a lot of money in utility cost because you are reducing your average heat load through your windows by at least 40%. Every window you have that faces east or west is subject to a lot of light and heat throughout the day. Exposed glass transfers this heat into your space and warms it significantly. Just feel the inside of any of your windows exposed to the sun … its like a heater in your room. Once you install SignGrafx Printed Custom Window Shades this heat will be redirected, absorbed and reflected back through the window to help reduce your interior heat load and subsequent utility bills during the warm months. On the other hand when it is cold outside you can roll up the Printed Custom Window Shades to capture the heat to reduce your space heating costs.
