Solar Screens

From Europe to the Western United States, solar screens have become the latest rage in shade protection and energy savings. We are working hard to influence all designers, specifies, architects and builders in the U.S. to incorporate these systems in home and business’s of the future. Present buildings and homes offer some challenges, but every completed job so far, has gone beyond what we or our customers had expected. By blocking the sun’s rays, yet maintaining your view is a win-win situation. Your motorized shades can be installed to work independently, in concert with other shades or function automatically with sun and room temperature sensors – how cool is that!

Interior shades
Designed as the light duty shade, it avoids the exterior elements and works very well when outside applications are not possible or practical. Operation can be by manual pull chain or a battery powered motor. Interior mounted shades will not only reduce your cooling costs and manage ambient light, but will also manage the sun’s damaging effects on you furniture, carpets and valuables.

Exterior shades
These can stop up to 90 percent of the solar heat rays, and can even offer a 100% block out shade. You maintain almost total non-glare visibility, while enjoying your patio or home interior area during the sunny months of the year. Stopping the sun’s rays before the glass makes it superior to interior shades. All exterior systems are operated by motorization. These can be programmed to operate independently or by group. The hardware offers 5 powder coated colors. The side guides are offered in either cable or track to hold the screen in place at all times. Depending on what we can attach to, usually dictates what option to use.

E-Zip Screens
They can turn a totally open porch into a screened- in- porch at the touch of a button. There is a large selection of mesh material to choose from to seal out insects, give sun protection and help maintain temperature. The fabric is secured on the sides and rolls into a storage cassette at the top, so once set in the open position, insect access is virtually impossible. They also act as a protective buffer from the elements and can stand up against winds up to 80 mph. It’s like having your own “on demand “room.
