Did you know....

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.

Solar Shades:

  • Block harmful UV rays that cause skin cancer by 94%
  • Reduce indoor temperatures by as much as 15 degrees
  • Can cut utility bills by as much as 33%
  • Reduce heat gain by 55-65% during direct sunlight (southern facing windows)
  • Reduce heat gain by 72-77% during direct sunlight (western facing windows)
  • Protect furnishings and carpets from sun damage
  • Are the most efficient way to bring shaded comfort to decks and patios
