Cellular shades are best for energy efficiency because they trap air in the cells, keeping the warmth in and the cold air out in the winter. In the summer, they help keep the cool air in, and the heat out. They also absorb sound to make rooms more comfortable.
UV Transmittance: 0%
UV transmittance measures the effectiveness at preventing ultra violet rays from entering an interior. The percentage ratings indicate the amount of possible UV rays that actually penetrate the window covering into the interior.
Shading Coefficient: 0.30
Shading coefficient measures the heat going through the window when the shade is used versus the heat gain through a bare window. The lower the numbers, the less heat transfer and the cooler the room is in the summer.
Sound Absorption: 0.40-.045
AKA the Noise Reduction Coefficient, sound absorption is the amount of reflected sound absorbed by the shade. The greater the coefficient, the greater the sound absorption.
R-Value (Single Pane): 4.76-5.37
The R-Value rates the effectiveness of the window covering at preventing energy from flowing to the outside. The higher the number, the more insulative the product.
R-Value (Double Pane Est): 3.2-3.3
See above for Single Pane Description.
