At Perfect Fit Window Fashions serving Naples, we know that many of our customers just love our Florida sun. That’s a lot of the reason many of us are here, right? But the sun can have some downsides—after all, its powerful UV rays can hurt someone’s investment in the beauty of their home. But Hunter Douglas can help through window treatments that block or greatly reduce UV rays. Read on to learn more!
About UV Rays
UV rays are an invisible form of radiation emitted by the sun. They offer some helpful properties (including giving healthful vitamin D for the skin), but they can also be damaging, especially with prolonged exposure. UV rays can negatively impact the artwork, furniture, and flooring in our homes, mostly because of the chemical bonds in those objects. Over time, UV rays can break down the chemical bonds, resulting in a bleached or faded appearance. The unsightly result can be devastating for a homeowner.
Never Sacrifice Style for Protection
Luckily, Hunter Douglas offers numerous products that can help protect from UV rays, and they won’t detract from (and will often help) the style of your room. You can choose from a wide variety of colors, styles, textures, and fabrics. And these products will be custom-designed to fit your window exactly. Plus, many options are also energy-efficient, which helps you save money on your energy bills. Here are just a few you might choose from:
- Pirouette® Window Shades, which can block up to 81% of harmful UV rays.
- Silhouette® Window Shadings, which block 95% to 99% of the sun’s rays.
- Designer Screen Shades, which can block up to 99% of harmful UV rays, depending on the fabric and openness level you choose.
You can use Pirouette and Silhouette shades with a variety of operating systems, including top-down and cordless options as well as motorized systems. Designer screen shades can come with the custom clutch operating system, which offers smooth operation and the smallest light gap in the industry.
