Skylight Shades

Glass skylights bring natural light and a sense of openness into a space. However, they can often produce unwanted heat and glare. In the warmer months, the heat they generate can add significantly to cooling costs. Skylight shades are an excellent way to control and regulate how much sunlight and heat is generated by overhead and out-of reach windows throughout the day. And motorized shading control systems make skylight shades more practical than ever. They eliminate the need for dangling cords, long cranks, ladders, or other cumbersome methods of manually operating the shade
Skylights have soared in popularity, and the variety of shade options and styles has grown along with them. Today skylight shades are available in styles including folding, or Roman shades, flat roller shades, sloped shades, pleated shades. There are even options for exterior skylight shades. They can be made in custom shapes, as well, giving designers and architects the freedom to create skylights in any size or shape, secure in the knowledge that a shading control system for it is available. And while motorized control systems can simplify operation, manual and crank operated units are easy to use and perfectly suitable for many locations. Manual units can also provide a cost advantage over motorized controls.
