Abstract A method for the evaluation of sun shades and blinds for offices was developed. The light transmission and reflection factors of 29 different blinds or textile curtains were measured with a new spherical photometer under various conditions of natural lighting. In addition, illumination levels and luminance inside the offices were determined. Impairment of the view of the external environment was assessed on a five-point scale. Heat transfer through the various kinds of blinds and curtains was measured. The results are presented in tables.
