Sun Blocking Screen for Windows
What is Solar Screen Fabric?
Solar Screen is a special window screen mesh that is specially designed for Sun Control. It is the most effective way to Control the Sun's Heat and Glare by stopping it before it enters your window. Much like a big shade tree, exterior solar screen will help reduce your cooling costs, can reduce the load on your air conditioning and will help reduce glare and fading of home furnishings. Advanced solar screen fabric is extremely durable and pet resistant. We only sell material manufactured by Twitchell™ Corp.
What are Solar Screen Benefits?
Cools Your Home or Other Living Space. Solar screen on windows can cool problem rooms up to 15 degrees in warm climates making the home or other living area much more comfortable in the hot summer months.
Reduce Cooling Energy Costs. Independent Studies have shown that solar screen installed on exposed windows can reduce the cooling portion of electric energy costs as much as 30-35% on a typical home in a warm climate. In many cases the 'payback' period can be as short as 1-2 years.
Protection from Fading. The UV rays blocked by solar screen can help protect your valuable home furnishings such as furniture, drapes, floors and paintings.
Daytime Privacy. With solar screen on your windows, it is very hard, if not impossible for people to see into your home during the daylight hours. Much like dark sunglasses, even though people can't see in, outward visibility can be excellent, especially with the darker color (black, brown or dark bronze) Textilene® 80 Solar Screen.
Reduced Glare. Solar screen helps reduce the glare coming in through the windows. This benefit can be very beneficial in the family television, media room or home office.
How Does Solar Screen Do All That?
Solar Screen Material cools and protects by reducing heat and UV rays in 3 ways.
They Block the sun's hear and UV rays, Absorb the heat and Dissipates it with the airflow through the screen.
