What is R-value?
R-Value is used as a measure of comfort in winter and indicates a fabric's ability to reduce the flow of heat through it. The higher the R-value, the better its resistance to heat loss or gain. A double honeycomb cellular shade (like our EcoSmart line) with its high R-value has superb insulating values which can result in substantial energy savings, year after year. More info on R-Value...
What is Shading Coefficient?
Shading Coefficient is important in hot weather and indicates a fabric's ability to reduce heat flow from the outside through a window shade to inside your home. A shading coefficient of 0.35 means 65% of the heat stays outside. On a hot day, heat coming in through your windows can raise room temperature by 15-20 degrees and make your air conditioning work two to three times harder. A lower shading coefficient translates into less heat gain, more reflected heat, and lower cooling costs for you. More info on shading co-efficient...
