  • Many homeowners in the Bay area have invested a lot to make their homes beautiful. And they probably want them to stay that way. That’s why one important line of defense is against damaging ultraviolet (UV) rays. At Blinds & Designs serving Marin County, we carry the full line of Hunter Douglas window fashions, including products designed to protect homes against the harmful effects of UV rays. Read on to learn more!

    UV Rays

    UV rays are an invisible form of radiation from the sun. And, with prolonged exposure, they can do some serious damage to the artwork, furniture, and flooring in our homes. Over time, UV rays can break down the chemical bonds in those objects, resulting in a bleached or faded appearance. But it doesn’t have to be that way. And what’s even better is that you don’t have to give up style for protection. Many of the Hunter Douglas window fashions that protect against UV rays come in a wide variety of colors, styles, textures, and fabrics. Some options include:

    • Designer Screen Shades, which can block up to 99% of harmful UV rays and are especially good for patios and sunrooms. Designer Screen Shades help to preserve your view while complementing your décor. Plus, they’re now available with the eco-friendly GreenScreen Sea-Tex™ fabrics, which are made from reclaimed ocean plastic.
    • Silhouette® Window Shadings, which can block 95% to 99% of the sun’s harmful rays. Available in 36 different material and color options, Silhouette shades feature S-shaped vanes designed with two sheer fabric layers that allow you to maintain your view while still protecting your drapes, furniture and more.
    • Pirouette® Window Shades, which can block up to 81% of harmful UV rays, while offering simple sophistication for your home. A classic window treatment, Pirouette window shades feature uniquely designed and soft horizontal fabric vanes that can be easily maneuvered to control light and sun.
