Shadow-System offers a wide collection of various fabrics. It is over 400 patterns, both classic plain and decorative modern design, as well as technical / fire resistant fabrics. The offer includes fabrics with various light transmissions, from transparent fabrics, through semi-transparent, protecting against unwelcome sight, but providing the daily light supply, up to the blackout fabrics – blinding the interior completely. A separate group is fabric of Honeycomb type with honeycomb structure which makes the system cords completely invisible.
The choice of a suitable fabric to cover the inside against the sun rays coming through the window has a great importance. Apart from technical parameters that decide on the amount of sunlight transmission, its decorative aspect is worth considering. A fabric in a proper colour not only decorates a window, but is also a crucial element of the whole room decor. The Honeycomb fabric application will significantly improve the thermal and acoustic insulation of the interior.
Fabrics of HONEYCOMB type are pleated fabrics with a characteristic structure of a honeycomb. Due to a double layer of fabric application, the openings in the fabric needed for system cords , as well as the cords themselves are invisible. Such fabric structure has also excellent thermo-insulating properties, and therefore the room heats up less in summer, and the heat loss through the glass panes is much lower in winter. Thus, the fabrics of a HONEYCOMB type help keeping a comfortable air temperature and cost optimisation of heating and cooling the interior.
