Blinds & Window Orientation
Protecting your windows from the direct sunlight is not 100% guaranteed even with the new generation of low E glass types. The first step is to secure additional light control and minimize direct solar transmission through your windows to provide a healthy interior environment.
A critical factor is direction or orientation of the window wall to provide maximum shading. The amount of radiation and sun rays depends on which direction the window is facing. Usually, south-facing windows are ideal for natural light all year-round.
Selecting the Right Fabric for Your Roller Blinds
High visible-light transmittance characteristics and low shading coefficients are just two of many problems that have arisen with the expanded varieties and uses of low E glass and the application of ultra-thin Low-E coatings. Glazing must be considered as being very similar to clear glass when selecting a visually transparent blind system.
Visible light is equal to daylight; however, the human eye can only see white light in the light spectrum ranging from 100 nm (UV light) to 1 mm (Infrared light). The sum of colours in the visible spectrum are seen as white.
