Conventional dark-colored shade fabrics absorb energy and increase the solar heat gain in the space, wasting energy and creating an uncomfortable environment. This limits the use of dark screen fabrics in green or sustainable building design where heat reflection is specified in a shading solution. The new KOOLBLACK Technology solves this problem by utilizing innovative heat reflecting properties that enable the dark fabric to reflect more solar heat.
In fact, KOOLBLACK Technology increases the energy efficiency of dark, solar-shade fabrics to levels comparable with light colors, reducing solar heat gain coefficients up to 23% and contributing to a building’s ability to earn LEED certification. It provides exceptional glare control and allows superior view through, comfortable work environments, and elegant street-side aesthetics while saving energy.
Constructed in a 2 x 2 basket weave pattern and available in a wide array of colors, the new Basketweave E Screen with KOOLBLACK technology offers an ideal cost-saving solution for commercial automated shading applications.
