Drawing the Curtains

Turn off that light!

In today's modern lives of business, blackout shades are a blessing; however, they began as a saving grace during WWII. Blackout material originated during WWII in Great Britain to conceal light from the German planes. According to BBC, Blackout curtains' stopped light from rooms showing from outside. There were no street lights either. The idea was to stop lights from towns guiding enemy planes to drop bombs. German pilots were given the go-ahead to bomb buildings if they saw light. WWII has ended and blackout shades have evolved into more economic uses that include saving your customers money.

Reasons for Blackout Shades
Blackout shades have three main functions
  • Reduce energy costs
  • block light
  • and help noise reduction
Blackout Shades Reduce Energy Costs
Are west-facing or southwest rooms challenging to work with? Blackout shades can retain heat during winter and maintain light while keeping out heat during the summer. Increase energy efficiency with timers or sun sensors controls to give homeowners the greatest amount of flexibility and get the best use of their space.

Blackout Shades Block Light
Blackout shades can create the ambiance of night for those that work at night and sleep during the day or those that live in a big city and have to sleep with a streetlight outside their bedroom window. They are also a must-have for media rooms giving a theatrical experience. Blackout shades even help reduce the glare on television screens. These present an excellent way to help get your client's windows ready for the next Super Bowl!
Help your client’s get their man cave ready for Game Day!

Blackout Shades Block Noise
Are the neighbors having a party? Is there a bad thunderstorm? Are you tired from sleep deprivation? It’s possible to block sound from neighbors, a busy road, or the train that travels through your neighborhood. Blackout shades will not completely soundproof a room; however, they will drastically reduce noise levels, which are helpful for a baby’s nursery and a nap time life saver! Have you ever wondered why your child wakes up at the crack of dawn on weekends? Blackout shades from BTX will help eradicate this problem and parents might regain an hour or two of  much needed sleep.

Summer is right around the corner, so there is no better time to find ways to cut energy costs while enhancing Game Day or regaining your sleep pattern. It's unbelievably simple, just let BTX know what you're looking for and we will help you out!
