Opacity: Screen opacity is the term used to describe how much light or view is blocked out by a screen and is expressed as a %. For example if a laser cut screen has opacity of 70% it will let 30% of the view or light through. This figure determines whether a screen is a privacy screen, decorative screen or both. Most patterns can be easily adjusted to suite your requirements at little or no extra cost. The images below demonstrate this principle, with the higher opacity screen being around 70% and the lower being about 50%.
