Sunlight invigorates the workplace, but can also decrease productivity with glare and over-heating spaces. Regulate daylight in commercial spaces with a shading solution designed to optimize comfort and lower energy costs. Systems can also be automated and integrated with other controls for additional savings and comfort.
Shades block and reflect direct sunlight during the day to reduce the demand on air conditioning systems during the summer. Certain fabrics are dual-sided with a white or silver backing to deflect more sunlight. In colder months, lowered shades can provide an insulating barrier to keep the building warmer. By automatically adjusting electric light levels in response to daylight, electric lighting needs can also be reduced.
When selecting a Lutron shading system, you have the choice of technology, control, and fabric. With hundreds of fabrics to choose from in different opacity and color, a conference room can have sheer fabrics for a meeting but blackout shades for an A/V presentation. Bottom-up shades can offer privacy on the first floor with a dim-out fabric while higher levels use a dual-sided fabric to create a uniform appearance from the outside while deflecting more daylight for increased energy savings.
