- 1. An Architects Guide to Sustainable Window Coverings
2. It is a window in a residential, commercial or institutional facility that is treated by a window covering to prevent the loss of heat in winter and to filter out solar heat gain in summer months with sustainable products and ideas.
What is a Green Window?
Indoor Environmental Quality
LEED for Window Coverings
5. Energy Reduction
Energy reduction through solar shading and window coverings may be quantified in two primary categories; reduction of solar energy entering a space and thereby reducing the amount energy used for cooling and reduction of thermal energy leaving the space and thereby reducing the energy required for heating.
6. Recycled Content
8. Indoor Environmental Quality
We have a full line of low VOC products that pass the GreenGuard Air Quality Certified and GreenGuard for Children and Schools SM standards
9. Keeping the Heat Out
10. 11. Solar Shades
12. 5% MScreen Fenestration Properties
13. Solar transmittance (Ts)
This factor gives the proportion of solar energy transmitted through the fabric. A low percentage means the fabric performs well at reducing solar energy.
Solar reflectance (Rs)
This factor gives the proportion of solar radiation reflected by the fabric. A high percentage means the fabric performs well at reflecting solar energy.
Solar absorptance (As)
This factor gives the proportion of solar radiation absorbed by the fabric. A low percentage means the fabric absorbs little solar energy.
Solar radiation is always partially transmitted through, absorbed or reflected by the fabric. The sum of all 3 equals 100. Ts + Rs + As = 100% of solar energy.
How does Solar Protection work ?
14. Visual Transmittance
Tv = Visual Transmittance is the measure of Glare
The number is a ratio of the amount of total solar energy which passes through the glass and screen combined.
M-Screen 5% White/White = 15This fabric reduces glare by 85%
M-Screen 5% Charcoal/Sky = 5This fabric reduces glare by 95%
15. Shading Coefficient
Shading Coefficient is the percentage of solar heat gain through a combination of glass and screen. Light colors have lower shading coefficients and darker colors have higher shading coefficients.
16. Shading Coefficient
M-Screen 5% White/White = .36This fabric allows 36% heat gain
M-Screen 5% Charcoal/Sky = .65This fabric allows 65% heat gain

20. Solar Shade Systems
21. MotorizedSolar Shades
22. Battery Operated
23. Dual Roller
24. Available in sizes 28' 9" wide and up to 30' tall.
26. SkyLightFlexShades are available up to a maximum unsupported width of 36". Larger units require one or more support cables, up to a maximum of 6' wide x 10' long.
27. Keeping the Heat In
28. The Measure of a products ability to resist heat flow is called R-Value.
29. 30. Duette Architella
31. Drapery as an Insulator
32. Roman Shade
33. SolarChoice Heaters
34. They work through natural convection. Heat absorbing aluminum is encased by a plastic vane. When the aluminum is heated by the sun a chimney effect is created. Cool air is drawn into each vane, heated and re-circulated back into the room.
35. The Workroom Conversion
Decorating with Fabric has successfully employed sustainable supplies, products and practices into its workroom and installation business.
36. Mission Statement
Decorating with Fabric is dedicated toward the efforts of creating a living & working environment that is energy efficient, healthy and productive. We are aware of our own footprint in the design, creation and installation of our treatments and strive to provide sustainable solutions that protect the environment.
