Solar Shades

The perfect combination of appealing design and maximum performance without compromising your view.


Solar Shades

Exterior solar shades are an ideal way to cool your home’s interior and keep its furnishings protected from UV damage, without interfering with existing interior window treatments. When mounted to the outside of your windows, they deflect the sun’s heat and harmful UV rays before they enter your home. Because of this, exterior shades can be up to 40% more effective than their interior counterparts.

In addition, exterior solar shades are commonly used to enclose open porches and provide wind and weather protection in the winter months. Imagine that, with the touch of a button, you could completely enclose your entire porch or screen room with retractable fabric panels.
