Solar Shades offer excellent light control, not only With energy costs going ever higher, our window fashions not only have an effect on your energy costs, but also aids in energy conservation.

  • Flame Retardant – exceeds the U.S. commercial fire ratings.
  • Superior Strength and Dimensional Stability – yarns are 36% fiberglass and 64% PVC. They will not stretch, shrink or twist. Shades always hang flat and roll true.
  • Fade Resistant Yarns – color life exceeds all commercial requirements.
  • Anti Bacterial and Non Toxic Materials – Reject mold, bacteria and dry rot. Fiberglass is manufactured from all natural materials: quartz, sand, soda and lime. It is not affected by extreme temperatures.
  • Super fine yarns for maximum undistorted vision.
  • These shades are lead free.
  • They do not provide night time privacy
  • With a whisper of light and color, solar fabrics light-filtering qualities diffuse light, reduce glare and control solar heat gain yet maintain excellent outward visibility to make any room a more comfortable environment. Solar fabrics come in roller shades or as Roman-style shades and are perfect for large openings.
  • Solar shades reduce the fading of textiles and interior furnishing by significantly blocking harmful UV rays. While lighter color fabrics reflect light and illuminate the interior with just the right amount of light, darker fabrics provide a superb view to the outside and absorb light making them ideal for viewing computer and television screens. Using advances in polyester yarn development, a unique twill weave has been developed that allows a distinct two-sided appearance that remains neutral white to the outside while a darker color to the inside for superior visibility and solar heat reduction.
  • The openness of a fabric refers to the weave or mesh structure and determines the amount of heat and light that enters a room. Solar fabrics are offered in a variety of openness factors (1%, 3%, 5%, 10%, 25%) to allow optimal light in or to provide more privacy.
  • The simple yet beautiful weaves add a rich, subtle texture without taking away from the overall interior design scheme. A recently introduced novelty jacquard line offers an array of unique textures and rich colors inspired by nature. Simple, clean and classic, the aesthetic quality of solar shades allows them to be used in combination with other draperies and window coverings.
  • Made of vinyl-coated fiberglass yarns, our classic solar fabrics are durable and handle high-traffic applications with ease. A heavy-duty vinyl-coated polyester style can be used for outdoor applications. Solar fabrics meet or exceed flame retardant standards and are bacteria/fungal resistant.

MOTORIZED SHADES

  • Motorization is also an important option for hard-to-reach shades at skylights or transom windows. It can be an important option to facilitate operating draperies behind heavy furniture. It is an efficient option when it is necessary to operate a large number of shades or draperies simultaneously within a given space.
  • Motorization is also safe and reliable; all of our plug-in motors and controls are UL and CSA approved for safe operation, while utilizing very little electricity. Another extremely important safety factor for residential blinds and shades is that window treatment automation eliminates hanging cords, which can be dangerous around small children and pets.
  • Beach Bungalow Blinds uses only the most reliable products in window treatment motorization. Each system we provide uses a sleek, modern multi-channel radio-control remote control for shade operation. The advantage of radio-control is that there is no “point and click” at a stationary “eye”. The remote control can be operated from anywhere in the room

Favorite Holiday Pics!

So we’ve been on the hunt for some beautiful Holiday Window’s to share with you and help you get into the Holiday spirit! Like our facebook fapage to see more images. We’ve been posting new ones every day!

Plantation Shutters come in various colors but white makes a perfect match for any kind of decor! Only red and green needed here - the white was already there!

I love the way the red and green on the Cornice add the perfect touch to the window and balance out the colors in the room. The red holiday trimmings bring out the red in the window!

Holiday decor can be easier than you think - just take the colors you already have in the room and bring them out in your Christmas trimmings.

I like the perfect combination of Natural Woven Wood shades and Draperies in this one - great backdrop for the Christmas Tree! Simply Beautiful!

Here is another perfect example of taking the existing colors and matching the Holiday decor - this look is definitely well put together. Even the dog likes it!

Sometimes "Less" is not only "More" but it's the perfect touch! Just a little touch to the window adds beautiful Holiday spirit to the room!

We just had to share this last one - goes to show that you can create your own Holiday look that just right for you!
