Uses for Window Covering
Window coverings are materials used to cover a window to manage sunlight, to provide additional weatherproofing, to ensure privacy or sometimes security or purely for decorative purposes.
Variety of Coverings
Window coverings are usually on the interior side of windows, but exterior solutions are also available. Types of coverings include: Curtains and drapes, window shutters, as well as window blinds like Venetian blinds and mini blinds.
Types of Window Coverings
Curtains vary according to cleanability, ultraviolet light deterioration, oil and dust retention, noise absorption, fire resistance and life span. Curtains may be moved by hand, with cords, by press-button pads or remote-controlled computers.
Many window blinds are made with slats of fabric, wood, plastic or metal that adjust by rotating from an open position to a closed position by allowing slats to overlap. A roller blind does not have slats but consists of a single piece of material.
