Solar Shades

The most efficient way to block the heat of the sun is from the outside – before it has a chance to heat the glass on your windows. Solar shades can block the sun’s heat while still providing visibility to the outside. They pay for themselves year after year in reduced energy costs and protect your furnishings from harmful UV rays that may cause fading, especially to surfaces like leather. Whether you are looking to block heat or add privacy, choosing to install solar shades is the perfect solution.
