Polar Shades Dealer Fresno, CA

Polar Shades interior window shades are made from high-quality textiles that come in a variety of fabrics, patterns, and designs. Polar Shades utilize natural, filtered light as a design element, helping to illuminate our customers’ spaces without letting in unwanted heat and sun glare.

How It Works

Polar Shades’ fabrics filter and diffuse damaging UV rays that cause interior flooring, furnishings and portraits to fade. Thanks to the solar-blocking technologies, the fabrics effectively reduce energy consumption by minimizing the amount of solar heat gain your home or business experiences. In return, you’ll enjoy lower energy costs.

Fabric Colors

Lighter fabric colors deflect the sun’s rays, reducing the amount of heat absorption that comes into a space. The end result is increased energy efficiency and cost savings. On the other hand, lighter fabric colors tend to lend themselves to greater possibilities for glare and reflection than their darker-colored counterparts. The textile fabricators have these thoughts in mind. The team has created various performance fabrics to optimize your living space.

The exterior (outward-facing) sides of the shades are characterized by lighter colors or aluminum finishes. These elements diffuse the light entering the room and eliminate the glare factor of lighter-colored fabrics on furnishings and fixtures within the room.

Optimal Performance

Outstanding fabrics allow Polar Shades to produce exceptional products. The performance fabrics are coated with aluminum, which provides greater energy efficiency than traditional sun control fabrics.

If you want to reduce the glare and reflection inside, while keeping an excellent view of the outside world, consider opting for darker fabrics. Besides absorbing light and heat, darker fabrics battle sun glare, making them ideal for places where you’ll have your computer or TV screen on display.

Interior Manual Shades are designed with a clutch system that is operated by pulling a continuous loop bead chain to effortlessly open and close the shade. Simply pull down on one side of the chain to raise the shade and pull down on the opposite side of the chain to lower the shade. Polar Shades’ multiple clutch sizes ensure that any size shade can be lifted with minimal effort. Interior manual shades are available with an optional 3 inch or 4 inch fascia in 5 standard colors as well as custom colors at an up charge. A curved cassette box that can be fabric wrapped for a softer look provides a beautiful designer look.
