Block out fabrics
Block out fabrics offer the ultimate level of privacy day and night.
Block out fabrics provide 100% protection from the sun and provides almost complete darkness and allows sleep when the sun is up.
Block out fabrics also have superior heat control (especially with the use of white colour backing) providing protection from the summer heat and insulation all year round.
Translucent fabrics will let light through but at the same time provide day in day out privacy.
Translucent fabrics also provide solar and heat protection. Depending on the colour chosen, darker colours will allow less light through and absorb heat.
Transparent fabrics are fabrics which do not block vision, but still provide day time privacy.
Transparent fabrics also offer some solar and heat protection but less than that of other fabrics such as translucent fabrics.
