The Sustainable Drapery: Reducing Stress to Systems focuses on the five areas of stress that custom drapery can improve upon. These are: 1) The reduction of solar energy entering a space. 2) Dealing with excessive and annoying glare. 3) Lowering sound reverberation. 4) Providing desired privacy 5) Managing ambient light.
