Lou Martin & Associates of San Antonio, Texas, is offering three new window shade styles for business aircraft. One of these is a bulkhead shade system that can close off a cabin compartment to allow greater privacy, or open to permit a feeling of roominess. The shade can be customized to include artwork or a company logo and comes in a variety of sizes.

Meanwhile, a dual mechanical shade has both a black-out fabric and a sheer fabric. The sheer fabric blocks ultraviolet light and heat while the black-out choice provides complete darkness. And Lou Martin’s Venetian shade includes a faux wood blind that can be incorporated with the pleated blind for complete darkness.
