Invisible Screens are GREEN
Interior Environments Are Enhanced By Installing retractable Screen Systems.
There are a number of factors analyzed during the LEED certification of a project that contribute to the quality of the interior environment. Several can be improved through the use of Invisible Screens’ Products:
INCREASED VENTILATION: The proper use of retractable screens can reduce or eliminate the need for air conditioning during warm days, allowing for the specification of opening windows in the building’s design to increase natural air ventilation.
INDOOR AIR QUALITY: All aluminum extrusions are powder-coated. There are no solvents, fumes or volatile organic compounds (VOC’s) involved in this process. The powder is non-toxic and 99% of overspray and unused powder can be collected and recycled.
DAYLIGHT AND VIEWS: Invisible Screens’ complete product line by design can be extended to block unwanted sunlight and solar gain through windows and doors opening without blocking views and allowing a higher ratio of glass to opaque building materials in projects without creating inherent light and cooling management problems.
Retractable Screens with Solar Black mesh reduce Thermal Heat Gain & Increase Energy Performance. This product can reduce solar gain up to 90% – by stopping the sun’s rays from ever touching the glass. This is far superior to simply using thermal-pane glass and/or window tints and coatings.
Creating natural ventilation and reducing heat flow through screen systems throughout the house. Retractable Screens can stop the sun from hitting the glass – the very best solution to stop unwanted solar gain through windows and retract away, virtually disappearing when they are not in use.
Cross-ventilation occurs when you open a door or window on each side of the house and the air pressure pulls the fresh air in and the stale air out. To optimize cross-ventilation, close the retractable screens on both sides on the house, and let nature take care of the rest.
