DaVita Inc, a Fortune 500 company, is a leading provider of kidney care in the United States. DaVita turned to Window Products Management (WPM) in 2011 to make various window improvements at several of their facilities in Southern and Central California that addressed both privacy concerns and energy consumption. The photograph provided on this page displays a unique roller shade designed by WPM that incorporates a 1 percent privacy shade at the bottom with a 10 percent view screen at the top. This innovative design provides DaVita’s patients with privacy while they are undergoing treatment and still allows them the opportunity of an outside view and natural lighting. The solar screen material provided excellent solar rejection with a 0.31 shading coefficient, along with good daylighting at 0.21 visible light transmittance. All of the roller shades are concealed under anodized aluminum fascia that matches the existing window mullion.
