The Benefits of Zebra Shades:
A Comprehensive Guide to Window Treatments

Zebra Shades are the newest kid on the block. These unique shades offer the best of both worlds when it comes to window treatments, both visibility and privacy alternatives with the heat rejection offered by traditional roller shades. By sharing the DNA of a lighter and darker shade, they offer a range of benefits that make them a versatile option for any business, school, hospital or home. In this article, we'll explore the advantages of zebra shades and provide tips for choosing the right shades for your needs.

Control Both Light and Privacy

One of the key benefits of zebra shades is how adaptable they are in controlling light and privacy. With their alternating sheer and solid stripes, they allow you to adjust the amount of light entering the room while maintaining privacy. By simply adjusting the shades, you can create the perfect level of light and privacy for any time of day.

Aesthetic Appeal

Zebra shades also have aesthetic appeal, pairing excellently with a modern interior design. The horizontal stripes add depth and dimension to any room, and the wide range of colors and patterns available means that there's a zebra shade to match any decor. Additionally, zebra shades are available in different styles, such as cordless or motorized, which adds to their versatility and convenience.

Energy Efficiency - Heat Rejection

Zebra shades help to aid the energy efficiency of the building they are installed in. Their heat rejection qualities reduce cooling costs in the summer and heating costs in the winter. The shades' double-layered design provides insulation that helps to keep your space comfortable year-round. In this way, zebra shades are carbon negative and help to lower the carbon footprint of a project.

Choosing the Right Zebra Shades

When choosing zebra shades, it's important to consider the size and style of the space along with functionality and project budget. Larger windows may be done with a single shade or may need more than one shade, depending on the size. It's also important to consider the type of control mechanism. Some zebra shades are available with a continuous cord loop, cordless, and motorized options, which provide added convenience and ease of use. Motorized shades can be battery-powered or wired into AC current.
