The most efficient way to block the heat of the sun is from the outside - before it has a chance to heat the glass windows and doors! Exterior solar shades can block the sun's heat while still providing visibility to the outside.
Betterliving Solar Shades pay for themselves year after year by reducing energy costs and protecting your furnishings from harmful UV rays that may cause fading. They also add privacy to your outdoor living space. Fabric is available in a wide variety of colors, weaves, and styles.
Motorized options for joined solar shade units include common operators which control all joined shades with one push of a button, or separate operators to give you flexibility to adjust each shade independently.
Solar Shade Options:
Solar Shade SERIES I – The fabric travels down a track.
Solar Shade SERIES II – The fabric travels down a track with a zipper design to completely close off your porch or patio from insects.
Shades can be made with acrylic exterior awning fabric, PVC coated polyester or fiberglass screen. Polyester and fiberglass screen is available in 5% to 40% openness to control how much light you want to enter your home.
Many Color and Openness Options
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.
COMMERCIAL SOLAR SHADES
Solar shades add sun protection, weather protection and privacy to your place of business. Solar shades can also be used to advertise your business by adding an imprinted logo or service information.
Exterior shades glide along stainless steel rods, cables or tracks professionally installed on your building
With select fabrics, a unique zipper system provides 100% black-out and bug protection from the outside
Motorized options adjust each shade independently or zoned together
Control the amount of light with three fabric styles: solid acrylic fabric, fiberglass mesh, or PVC coated polyester
