Solar shades are an excelent choice for commercial buildings as well as homes because they improve comfort, control light and operate effortlessly. Screen shades address the quality of light control and privacy in a slightly different manner. In solar fabrics the view-through and light control are a function of the density of the weave. The tighter the weave the lower the openness factor to block more sun for more privacy but will also allow less view-through. The higher the openness the higher level of visibility and view-through.
