External Sunscreen Fabrics

External sunscreen fabric

See our range of external sunscreen fabrics below.

Helio 86 and Helio 92 are perfect textile choices for essential solar protection combined with openness to let in more light. The fabric makes a significant contribution to building’s heat management by cutting out up to 86% of the sun’s rays, whilst still providing great visibility to the outside.

Helio 86

Colourways: Available in 9 trend colourways, with matt and metallic finishes the Helio 86 range compliments any building exterior and its surroundings.
Composition: Recyclable textile using Texyloop technology (woven polyester basecloth with PVC coating).

TV Visible Transmittance

The visible transmittance measures the percentage of visible light coming through the fabric. A low figure shows a very efficient fabric. (The Tv is identical whether the blind is placed inside or outside the building)

OF Openness Factor

The Openness factor measures the proportion of holes in a fabric. This parameter is important to calculate the degree of visibility through the fabric. The Openness Factor is expressed as a percentage. A low OF shows that the fabric is a very close weave. This factor is determined with light rays therefore it varies slightly with the colouring of the fabric.

TS Solar Transmittance

This factor measures the proportion of solar energy transmitted through a fabric. It is expressed as a percentage and for the fabric alone. A low figure indicates a good filtration of solar energy by the fabric.

RS Solar Reflectance

This factor measures the proportion of solar energy reflected by the fabric. It is expressed as a percentage and for the fabric alone. A high figure indicates a good reflection of solar energy by the fabric.

AS Solar Absorbance

This factor measures the proportion of solar energy absorbed by a fabric. It is expressed as a percentage and for the fabric alone. A low figure indicates a low absorption.
