Interior Mesh and Black out Fabrics
Our Interior mesh fabrics can provide solar protection while still maintaining a view out of the window when the shade is lowered or in down position. In addition a number of close mesh fabrics and black out fabrics are available for room darkening and privacy. Our solar screen fabric collection offers stylish and modern aesthetics with high durability, made with the most technically-advanced coated yarn in the industry, they control glare and heat without disturbing the view. Available in a range of fabric and color choices, while offering unmatched design possibilities and all-day interior comfort.
Sunair® offers interior mesh and black out fabrics from all major manufacturers, and stock many of the main brands, and their most popular colors. Some of the brands we offer are Mermet E screen 1 , 3, 5, and 10% open, Alkenz 4000, Sunshadow 3000 & 4000 Net, and SierraSol / Mesa by Rollease. These fabrics offer you exceptional transparency, sun blocking capabilities, strength, and durability.
Generally, a more open fabric from 5 to 10% openness is ideal for both sun protection and visibility. On some applications where the sun is much stronger and sun protection and privacy is the main concern, a tighter openness like 1 or 3 % is more suitable. Black out fabric offer no light transmission at all and can offer complete room darkening with added optional black out tracks for the roller shade.

The unique light-filtering qualities of our fabrics help reduce the fading of drapes, carpets and other interior furnishings, while continuing to offer a view to the outside. You choose the openness factor you need by taking both the view you desire and solar control needs into consideration. Solar shades can be used for both commercial and residential applications, and can be either chain operated or motorized.
The solar optical properties are used to calculate the shading coefficient. The shading coefficient represents the percentage of solar heat gain that is transmitted to the interior through the glass and shading system. Darker colors provide maximum glare reduction and visibility. For complete technical information, current test results, performance specifications and larger samples, contact our Marketing Department.
