“Shades and Life” Everything you wanted to know about shades.
Rolling window shades reflect light and heat from the sun, reducing the amount of energy required to cool the building. Motorized window shades can automatically adjust to compensate for the changing shade requirements throughout the day. Rolling shades can contribute to LEED points and credits.
Solar Control. In addition, shades can reduce or eliminate uncomfortable glare for workers, while still allowing ambient sunlighting and view-through to the outside.
Environmentally Friendly. The construction of window shades has become friendlier to the environment as well by including PVC-free fabrics and lean manufacturing processes. Our supplier is a member of the U.S. Green Building Council (USGBC), the nation’s foremost coalition of leaders from every sector of the building industry working to promote buildings that are environmentally responsible, profitable and healthy places to live and work.
Custom Built. Each rolling shade product is built to order. Fabric, hardware and operating mechanisms are specified to satisfy functional and aesthetic criteria—Bay Screens and Shades builds each unit for an exacting fit.
The Most Operator Options. We offer the broadest variety of operator styles in the industry. Options include bead chain clutch, crank, spring roller, and motorized roller-operated shades.
Unmatched Fabric Choices. Our spectrum of fabric colors and styles is unmatched. Woven mesh fabrics offer protection from heat, glare and UV rays, while maintaining the view. Soft translucent textiles offer designer appeal. And our opaque fabrics eliminate all visible light. Combine them with a room darkening side channel system, and you will achieve total blackout. All fabrics are fire retardant.
