Ultraviolet (UV) rays can be very damaging—and not just to skin. According to the National Fenestration Rating Council®, damaging UV rays and radiation coming through windows will permanently fade a home’s floors and furnishings. If your home has windows that are not covered properly, your belongings will likely experience UV damage. At Shutter Guy in Charleston, we know our customers want to protect their homes, and our trained consultants are happy to help them find the right window treatments to do the job right.
Stylish Hunter Douglas Window Treatments
Nearly every Hunter Douglas window treatment filters out at least 75 percent of the sun’s damaging UV rays if installed over double-glazed glass windows—and some, when fully closed filter as much as 99 percent. Controlling UV rays doesn’t mean you have to totally block your view of the outside. For example, Pirouette® Shadings sheer fabrics gently filter out UV rays, glare, and brightness, protecting your furnishings and spreading the severe exterior light evenly throughout the room. Alternatively, Vignette® Modern Roman Shades are energy-efficient—they trap air and add an extra layer of insulation at the window to keep your home warmer in the winter and cooler in the summer. Vignette also protects your furnishings from fading with at least 75 percent protection from damaging UV rays.
