Translucent honeycomb blinds provide complete privacy when closed, while still allowing light through.
Light level ratings
Each fabric has a rating to indicate the percentage of light that is:
R – reflected by the blind
A – absorbed by the blind
T – transmitted through the blind
The ratings vary widely from fabric to fabric. They can be helpful when choosing blinds for specific purposes. For example in an office there may be a requirement to reduce the glare from a window onto a computer screen, or darkening a child’s room without completely blocking out the light.
The T rating of a blockout blind will always be 0.
Although these ratings relate to light, they are also indicators of heat transmitted through the blind, as light converts to energy.
