Under regular everyday use, SecurShades let natural light in while keeping heat out in summer and retain heat in winter.

Motorized shades can be programmed to raise and lower during certain times of the day to optimize energy efficiency and create a hands-off solution to operate shades in the classroom.

Building Management Systems can synchronize window shades with HVAC systems to provide the ideal environment.
