Dark colours absorb more heat and reflect less light, while light colours absorb less heat and reflect more light. The amount of energy savings for light and dark colour window shades are very similar when they are installed outdoors.
When it comes to maintenance, dark coloured shades are usually easier to maintain.
The necessity for automation for outdoor window solutions is higher than indoor window coverings. When integrated with a weather sensor, exterior window shading solution automatically reacts in real time as weather changes. Hence, offering optimal user experience and highest energy savings.
Automation also helps to prolong the lifespan of the outdoor window shades. For example, blinds will automatically retract in an event of very strong wind when no one is at home).
