Solar Screens Vs Integrated Blinds

Glazed Extensions and Solar Gain

The continued popularity of large sliding and bifold doors in modern design has resulted in an increase in the amount of glass used in British homes. More glass, naturally, means more exposure to the sun and a greater need for solar control.


Traditional British homes used solid doors, curtains, and net curtains to provide privacy.
