Why Mecho Fabrics Outperform the Competition

  • Through extensive research, Mecho established guidelines and recommendations for the use of our shadecloths, and now offer the broadest range of shadecloth color and density of any company worldwide
  • Polyester core fabric shades retain their original shape and form, particularly if the shades are quite large
  • Polyester core fabric allows for a sealed-cut edge, with a protective bead

How to Choose Between Shadecloth Colors

  • Color will directly affect heat gain (shading coefficient), brightness, and glare
  • Light colors are more reflective with lower heat gain and shading coefficients, but with a higher percentage of daylight and solar transmittance
  • Light colors are brighter when sunlit which causes high surface brightness and may transmit excessive, debilitating light onto computer screens and work stations
  • Light colors are difficult to see through due to surface brightness and higher reflectance and transmittance characteristics
  • Light colors tend to reflect more of the interior light back into the space
  • Darker colors provide a better view through the shadecloth to the outside
  • Dark colors absorb light and heat, and are less energy efficient than lighter colors
  • Dark colors  transmit less light and have a lower surface brightness, which lowers reflectivity and provides excellent glare-free environments
