What Does the “Openness Percentage” Mean for Solar Shades?

Article Headline: What Does the “Openness Percentage” Mean for Solar Shades? Article Description: Solar shade fabrics are generally referred to in the context of “opacity” and in percentages of “openness.” Solar shades (and exterior solar shades) operate like roller shades, and are known for providing excellent UV ray blockage (and privacy), while still allowing a view to the outside. Openness indicates the tightness of the fabric weave, which is an indication of the percentage of light that can penetrate through (e.g. 1%, 3%, 5%, etc.). Low openness means a more tightly woven fabric, with less visibility through the shade and a higher opacity. Higher openness percentages indicate a looser fabric weave, and therefore, greater visibility.
