E Screen Color Selection

NOTE: Darker screen colors offer better transparency (view-through) and enhanced glare control. On the contrary, the lighter colors diffuse more natural light. Learn more about the Thermal and Optical Performance of Fabrics.

Openness Factor

This is the percentage of open holes in a solar shade, otherwise known as weave density. A shade with a high openness factor allows more solar transmittance and better view-through. This would also indicate the percentage of visible light that passes through the fabric unobstructed. The openness factor does not determine visibility, glare or thermal control all by itself. Openness is inversely proportionate to UV blockage.

*Available when specifying 3/4" or 1" material thickness. Not available for Tableaux Metal™.
