What Affects Performance?

Two of the most important factors that can boost the energy efficiency and comfort of your building are fabric choice and operating system. Together, we call this your “Shading System.” We use Lutron’s tool, The Performance Shading Advisor to choose the optimal shading system. This tool allows us to input project specifics to offer you the best combination to achieve the performance metrics you need. It also allows you to understand what results you’ll see based on shading position–so you know just how important the operating system you choose will affect your building’s performance.

 

The Three Elements You Need Most

When we analyze your project specifics, we provide you with the optimal combination of fabric specifications to deliver the highest potential for those three elements. We generate a report to show the energy efficiency and comfort that’s possible. Not only that, but Performance Shading Advisor is THEIA compliant. THEIA is a performance shade fabric specification that guarantees your openness factor, such as 1, 3, 5, and 10%, within .75% of the specification. Lutron is unique in this guarantee. This compliance strongly controls standards to provide the comfort and energy expectations of your building.
