Things to Consider When Buying Exterior Solar Shades

Relaxing and enjoying the outdoors is the main benefit of owning a patio. Unfortunately, strong winds and harsh sunlight can make it difficult to enjoy spending time outside. Our exterior solar shades serve as an excellent solution to this dilemma. They will help control heat, glare, and wind and turn your patio into a true outdoor room. Here are some things to consider when shopping for exterior solar shades:

UV Protection

We can provide you with a variety of exterior solar shades for your patio that meet different needs. Before buying your solar shade, think about the amount of sunshine and UV protection you want. We can offer 1%, 5%, and 10% percent openness solar screens. A higher percentage means increased sunlight for your patio, while a lower percentage means better UV protection and improved wind control.

Quality of Materials

When choosing your retractable screen, it’s important to think about the quality of the materials. Solar screens are cost-effective because they can help reduce your home’s cooling costs. The longer they last, the lower their life cycle cost. We manufacture our exterior solar shades from high quality material that lasts for years. In fact, we stand behind the performance of our screens and we offer a warranty of up to 10 years.


Your exterior solar screen should also be easy to operate and reliable. We can provide solar screens that are simple to use. For instance, our solar screens have pushbutton or handle operation for optimum convenience. They can also provide comfort with a full or partial retraction or extension. You can easily adjust the screen, depending on the weather. We also manufacture our solar screens according to exacting standards, assuring you of their reliability.
