The low winter sun is here and it is causing issues in most homes that consist of large glazed features such as sliding and bi-folding doors, conservatories and glass room extensions. One issue is light glare, this is caused by the sun making direct contact with the glass which can cause quite a distraction and sometimes disrupt your daily routine. If you are in a working environment this is certainly something you want to avoid; when the sunlight hits the computer screens or any digital displays this can be a nuisance as the light can cause glare that makes it difficult to see. For those homes that comprise of a lot of glazing, such as glass room extensions and conservatories, are vulnerable to solar heat gain. This is caused by the sun’s solar rays being magnified by the glass causing a heat build which can cause discomfort. So how can we combat these issues?
The obvious choice would be to draw the curtains or blinds? This will restrict your scenic views and by doing this you are limiting the light and creating a dark atmosphere. From previous blogs we have mentioned how natural light is good for your health and lifestyle, so we have to ascertain a healthy balance that works for you and the home. How do we do this? With our Antiguan External Roller Blinds, they have been specifically engineered to combat the elements, especially the sun’s intense rays. The woven mesh fabric that is used for our shading systems have been designed to diffuse the light whilst enabling a view outwards, providing you with a healthy balance of light and resolving your light glare issues. When the warmer weather comes back around you will then have the most efficient systems to battle against solar heat gain, saving you money on energy bills and most importantly you are making a contribution to a greener planet.
When our External Window Blinds are combined with our innovative SMART Light Sensors you will never have to touch the remote ever again. As soon as the light is detected by the sensor the Twilight Mesh Fabric will be deployed to harmonise your space inside so you can carry on with your day. We even have a Tahoma SMART Home Hub which can be linked to an app so you can have full control from where you are in the world.
