Solar Heat

Keep Out 85% of the Solar Heat in Australia

Australia’s scorching summers can make any home feel like a furnace. With temperatures soaring, it becomes imperative to find effective solutions to maintain a cool indoor environment. At Sure Shade, we understand the unique challenges posed by the Australian sun. Our innovative shading solutions are designed to block up to 85% of solar heat, making your home a sanctuary from the relentless heat.

Understanding the Impact of Solar Heat

Solar heat gain is the increase in temperature in a space, object, or structure as it absorbs sunlight. In Australia, where sunshine is abundant and intense, managing this heat gain is crucial for maintaining comfortable indoor temperatures and reducing energy consumption. Excessive solar heat can lead to:

  • Increased Energy Bills: Cooling systems work overtime to combat the heat, leading to higher electricity usage.
  • Uncomfortable Living Conditions: Rooms can become unbearably hot, impacting comfort and productivity.
  • Fading Interiors: UV rays can cause furniture, carpets, and curtains to fade over time.

Sure Shade’s Innovative Solutions

At Sure Shade External Venetian Blinds, we offer a range of products specifically engineered to tackle the problem of solar heat gain. Our shading solutions are designed to blend seamlessly with the aesthetics of your home while providing maximum protection against the sun.

External Shading Systems

External shading is one of the most effective ways to block solar heat before it enters your home. Our range of external shading systems includes:

  • Retractable Awnings: These provide flexible shading options and can be extended or retracted as needed.
  • External Blinds: Available in various fabrics and styles, external blinds can block up to 85% of solar heat.
  • Shade Sails: Perfect for outdoor areas, shade sails offer extensive coverage and protection from the sun.

Advanced Glazing Solutions

Windows are a major source of solar heat gain. Our advanced glazing solutions help mitigate this by incorporating high-performance materials that reflect heat while allowing natural light to pass through.

  • Low-E Glass: Low-emissivity glass coatings minimize the amount of infrared and ultraviolet light that passes through without compromising on natural light.
  • Double Glazing: By trapping air or gas between two panes of glass, double glazing significantly reduces heat transfer.

Internal Shading Options

In addition to external solutions, internal shading can provide an extra layer of protection against solar heat.

  • Thermal Curtains: These curtains are designed with special lining to reduce heat transfer and keep interiors cooler.
  • Blinds and Shades: Our range includes blackout blinds, cellular shades, and more, all tailored to enhance your home’s energy efficiency.

Benefits of Sure Shade’s Products

Investing in Sure Shade’s shading solutions offers numerous advantages:

  • Energy Savings: By reducing the need for air conditioning, you can see a significant drop in energy bills.
  • Enhanced Comfort: Maintain a comfortable indoor temperature even during the peak of summer.
  • Protection of Interiors: Prolong the life of your furniture and other interior elements by shielding them from harmful UV rays.
