Sun, as we know is far more than a light source. Sun exposure is required for the synthesis of Vitamin D in our skin, but there are also non-beneficial components to it. It can heat you up, tan your hide, fade your furnishings, and damage your eyes. These downsides result in a need to find an optimal balance between healthy sun exposure and less healthy over-exposure. So, what are the five benefits of sun protection with retractable screens?
Sun Exposure – Striking the Right Balance
That is where sun control with the use of large door screens or wall screens is important. The mesh, we utilize in our screening systems can give you the following 5 benefits:
- Glare Reduction: Reduce glare coming into your living space so your eyes are comfortable with the amount of light you have for reading, watching sports, doing a task at hand or entertaining friends.
- Furnishings Protection: Screen Logic can reduce sun damage (fading) to furnishings significantly and provide a longer life of your fabrics, flooring, and woodwork.
- Air Circulation: The screen cloth effects not only light, but also has a side benefit relative to air movement. If you want your area to have a lot of air circulation then utilize a lighter density cloth. If you have a prevailing overabundance of air movement, that can reduce with a denser cloth in your screening.
- Heat Reduction: Sunlight produces a lot of heat in what is called passive solar gain. This gain can overheat your living space. The relative temperature of the room can be reduced several degrees if that direct sun is reduced or almost eliminated from striking the surfaces of a room thanks to the right screens.
- UV Protection: That streaming light into your patio area can look beautiful; however, it can cause significant damage to skin. One in five Americans will develop skin cancer by age 70. Each year over 5.4 million cases of nonmelanoma skin cancer are treated in the U.S., according to SkinCancer.org. The “openness factor” of screen cloth can be manipulated to the tastes of the client and the level of UV reduction being sought to protect you from those harmful rays.
