At one time viewed as an afterthought and often still underappreciated today, commercial shades and related window treatments are major components of office layout and function. In reference to their name, commercial shades are specially designed window coverings that provide interior shade from the sun, reduce glare, help regulate ambient light and solar heat, and offer on-demand privacy.
Indeed, quality commercial shades have a direct contribution to the performance and organization of an entire organization and should be considered as such a benefit in planning a new or revamping an existing facility. Many commercial facilities will in fact choose window coverings such as solar shades for UV control, durability, energy efficiency, and an all-around increase in productivity and user comfort.
