Blackout curtains, a valid alternative to shutters
The blackout curtainsthey are known asguards, guarantee maximum privacy and are designed forfilter the lightwhich comes from the outside just as shutters and roller shutters would.

There is no shortage of products on the market to ensure, depending on the need of the moment, a targeted management of sunlight. Some awnings are able to provide a dual function: darkening the environment by totally blocking the entry of light, or partial shielding from the sun's rays that offers shading and soft light. In this case, the user can control the degree of solar shading with an electric control that can be optimized with an automatic control device.
Theblackout and filtering curtainssee the combination of two fabrics. A fabric capable of obscuring the light and a second fabric that ensures shading and privacy, protecting the interior of the house from the sun, heat and prying eyes while allowing filtered sunlight to penetrate. The transparency of the second fabric allows those inside the house to look outside but those outside will not be able to look inside the house.
How theblackout curtainsdouble fabric?
