Which openness factor is best?

Which openness factor is best? Each type has a different use; that’s why they make so many.
Blackout Fabric: 0% openness
      • Opaque fabric prevents daylight transfer through fabric
      • No view when fully lowered
      • Applications include boardrooms, training rooms, laboratories, and auditoriums
      • By adding side and sill channels there is a complete light seal (contact us for details)
      • Some rooms benefit from a dual shade, blackout and open (again, contact us for details)
Semi Opaque Fabrics: 1-3% openness
      • Allows minimal daylight transfer through fabric
      • Limited view

      • Applications include lobby and open office design
