A Mylar shade is a window shade used for commercial, residential, industrial, and control tower use. It is made up of three transparent layers of dyed polyester material. This material can come in different thickness measures including 3 mil, 4.5 mil, 5 mil, and 7 mil. Laminated between each two glare reducing sheets of dyed polyester is a thin heat-reflective aluminum coating.

By installing Mylar Shades on a window, you are:

  • Rejecting up to 99% of ultraviolet rays
