Retractable Privacy, Sun and Light Wind Protection
Horizontal Shades are unique shading solutions that are pulled from the side to create retractable privacy and sun protection. They’re ideal for east or west facing exposures, where the morning or evening sun casts glare onto your outdoor living area.
While most shade products protect from the overhead sun, these side shades block the harsh rays of the angled morning or evening sun. They'll also block a slight breeze. When combined with an awning or canopy, they can be used to create ultimate shade and privacy.
Horzontal shades are also a great solution for terraces and balconies with close neighbors. They can create a fabric wall when you both want to enjoy the outdoors. To create instant privacy and shade, simply pull the fabric from its side cassette and hook it onto either a wall or floor-mounted post. The fabric glides along a bottom caster for easy operation.

A secure-lock braking systems for safe and convenient operation.
Available heights from 46 to 96 inches and available projections up to 13 feet.

Our Solar Shade Fabrics
View our collection of solar shade fabrics below. Our solar shade fabrics come in a variety of color options and several openness factors. The Openness factor refers to how much light travels through the fabric. A higher openness factor allows in more natural light and preserves your view to the outside. A lower openness factor creates more privacy and shade.
