There a several options of openness when choosing a solar screen for your windows. The most common openness factors are 3%, 5% and 10%.

Openness is easier explained like this: a solid wall has a 0% openness while a clear glass window pane has a 100% openness. In short, openness is the degree of visibility through the window measured in percentages.

Most all solar screens are designed to be used on roller shades, but can also be used on roman shades as well.

When you are choosing a solar screen material, it is best to view it during full sunlight in the window where you will be installing the roller shade. In some cases, you may have a need to install the solar shade on windows that will get little or no sun so as to continue the theme within the same area.

NB: It’s also important to note that no solar shade that has any openness factor at all will provide you with full or even adequate privacy in many cases. If your window is facing an area where there is little or no chance of someone looking into the room, then this is of course less of an issue.

Also, light that is filtered carries less solar radiation and thus less heat than full sunlight, but solar screens should not be considered for use where there is a need to reduce excessive heat in the summer months. A better alternative would be an interior shutter, blackout lined drapes or a cellular shade in either light filtering or room darkening materials.

I had some broken roller blinds at home, called Sam and they were picked up, fixed and delivered all on the same day!
Great service and would highly recommend.

Luke
We wanted cedar blinds for an angled window and that was no problem for Sam. His measure and quote were very quick and only one week later he installed them. They are beautiful and fit perfectly. Both his service and the blinds exceeded our expectations.
Sarah

This business has the best service. Sam came out the day after our e-mail enquiry, measured and quoted. The blind was ready in 2 days and was fitted and installed. We had some older cedar blinds that needed a professional clean. So they were taken away, cleaned and varnished within the week. So happy with the results. They looked brand new. Highly recommend.

Our family wanted new blinds for our bach. We chose Sam Reddy / Auckland Blinds as his company had supplied blinds for our home some 10 years earlier and they have proved excellent. Sam travelled the 100+ km to our bach , measured everything for the 17 blinds; left samples of the fabric for my mother and sister to choose colour and waited till that happened. Upon manufacture he and his mate installed the blinds on a Saturday morning when we were at the bach removing and disposing of the old blinds. They look excellent and perform exactly as we hoped . We are very pleased with our investment.

Sam did an amazing job with our blinds in our apartment! They were made and up very quickly. He has also stopped by a few times to check on them. Awesome service!

Absolutely amazing service. We ordered our blinds and within 2 weeks Sam and his team arrived and set up our complete home with our choice of white Auckland Blinds. The standard of workmanship, professionalism in managing the complete process and promptness of service will definitely ensure we make use of Auckland Blind services again!
