Commercial Window Coverings and How They Help the Community

Sponsored Content provided by Fred Kumpel - Owner, Strickland's Home

From local gyms to aquariums, commercial window coverings do far more than provide a finishing touch.

To the untrained eye, commercial window coverings may appear to serve a simple purpose: they frame your windows and provide a stylish finishing touch. Yet, at Strickland’s Home, we understand that the proper window treatment can address a variety of important purposes, from light control and privacy to skin protection and even wildlife conservation. Here, a few ways commercial window coverings help communities on a daily basis in Wilmington, Wrightsville and Carolina Beach, and beyond.

At the Gym 

While it’s something we often take for granted when we hit the treadmill, look closely and you’ll notice that window coverings like roller shades not only provide light control and prevent glare, but also grant much-needed privacy. From the outside, you can’t see through custom-made, tightly-woven fabrics. But from the inside, you can easily view passers-by and your car in the parking lot. Our trade secret? Solar screen shades, which block out harmful UV rays and keep your exercise space crisp and cool, no matter how hot and humid it gets outside. For a comfortable workout, healthy skin, and a reduced energy bill,window shades can make all the difference.

At a Beachside Restaurant

Chances are, you aren’t examining the window treatments at your favorite oceanside restaurant, either—you’re busy taking in the view! But when sea turtle season comes around, window coverings are a must, as nighttime light pollution can confuse fledgling turtles and disrupt their course towards the ocean. If you’re looking for eco-friendly shades for your Bald Head Island or Topsail Beach home, we can ensure yours keep the light in come sunset withindoor and outdoor treatments. From sunrooms to golf course clubhouses, we have your windows covered.

At a Performing Arts Center

When it comes to the silver screen, ballet, and theater, window coverings serve oh so many purposes: Blackout shades keep out the light and heat, whilecustom-designed draperies evoke the right time period, style, and mood for a theater from mid-century modern to old world charm. Our designers craftlayered window treatments with light-blocking fabrics, intricate trim, and accessories for playhouses, movie theaters, and even film sets. 

At the Courthouse

For civic offices and buildings like the local courthouse, roller shades provide adjustable light control and privacy, key for legal proceedings. What’s more, additional fabric window treatments like classic draperies and Roman shadesprovide an air of solemnity and professionalism.

At the Museum

If you’re displaying irreplaceable historical records, artifacts, and artwork, light and temperature control is of the utmost importance. While preservation and storage methods are key, window treatments come into play as well, especially in order to prevent fading and warping of aging papers and fabrics. Beyond this, blocking out glare and outside traffic allows the museum to remain a quiet, educational space.
