In order to enhance the dweller�s comfort the MirroFilm shades are used, controlled with the Mechoshade Home System. 0600 Series MirroFilm is a transparent, light filtering and heat insulating material, consisting of layers of tinted and clear polyester film with a deposit of pure reflective aluminum in the core. Washable and fade resistant MirroFilm can be used on DualShades® to create a two-layer insulating roller shade ideally suited to clear tinted or H.A. glass conditions. The color of the shade cloth is 0606 Smoke (gray). Darker colors provide a better view through the shadecloth to the outside, absorbing light and heat. They transmit less light and have a lower surface brightness, which lowers reflectivity and provides excellent glare-free environments for CRTs and work stations.
Old radiators are replaced with new baseboard style radiators, placed near the high risers.
