The entire range of fabrics, which totals over 90 choices, is split into 3 shading categories, Standard shading, Dim-Out, and Black-Out. As their names suggest these fabrics have varying solar properties providing different levels of solar and heat control and hence energy saving. Each fabric in the range is individually labelled in the pattern books for you to inspect the exact properties, the information provided includes; able to clean with a damp sponge, suitable for moist conditions, reflective coating, fire retardant, suitable for computer environments, and the measure of lightfastness.
The entry level is called Novoshade and has a selection of different colours to choose from, you can also have this range in ASC - Active Solar Control - which provides light and heat control. ASC is a pearlised coating on the reverse of the fabric which improves the solar properties, reducing heat build up in the warmer months and helping save energy when it is cold outside. There is a transparent and a semi-transparent range that will give style and design without compromising light, this is not suitable for conservatories with a temperature issue. Then there are also Jacquards, an imitation crush and a real crush, and a cellular option for the best solar properties with no visible holes.
