Pronema has chosen the best technical fabrics from a wide range of colors and latest trends, which can be applied on the various product types, for both indoors and outdoors.
Filter fabric blocks at least 90% of the light and makes it ideal for environments such as offices, warehouses and outbuildings, but can be used in domestic use too, where it can help protect an environment from too much heat and light.
Black-out fabric on the other hand, completely blocks the passage of light, so it is often applied in the absence of awnings or shutters of any kind, in situations like skylights, high up windows or large openings with limited access for example.
Visual wellbeing and health
The right lighting is a source of wellbeing both at home and in the workplace. Solar radiation is composed of visible light, infrared and ultraviolet rays. The effect of the rays when meeting matter (i.e. glass), varies according to the nature: some rays are divided, others pass through, some are reflected, and a part of them is absorbed.
In order to reduce the damaging effects of light in the workplace environment (reflection on monitors or glare), it is necessary to maintain a luminance within 500 candelas per square meter (1.000.000 cd/m2 can be detected when fully exposed to sunlight). Even domestic environments should be designed with the same parameters. In this way our eyes are constantly protected. Selected fabrics from Pronema have excellent properties of visible light filtering, which change depending on the type of fabric and also the color. The percentage of filtered light is expressed in TV. A fabric with a high TV value allows us to see well from the inside to the outside, but not vice versa.
Energy saving and thermal comfort
When choosing fabrics, certain factors should be taken into account: the percentage of sunlight that passes through (TS). This when low blocks more solar energy (heat). The percentage of solar energy reflected is indicated as RS, which the higher the percentage the more heat will be reflected. Fabrics can also absorb solar energy (AS). If the AS value is low the fabric repels solar energy well. Solar radiation is directly proportional to the total solar energy transmittance through glass. The “g” factor is the solar factor of only the glass, whereas the “g tot” factor is the solar factor of the combination of the glass and the solar shading type and characterizes the overall performance.
