PATIO SOLAR SCREEN SHADES
Summer is right around the corner! Which means more time to enjoy our patios and outdoor kitchens! If you are looking for a way to make your space more comfortable, exterior solar screen shades can help. The sun’s heat can make your patio or outdoor kitchen too hot to fully enjoy. Bugs and mosquitos can also make your patio space just as uncomfortable. Exterior patio shades can help with both.
SOLAR SCREEN SHADES CAN HELP WITH THE FOLLOWING:
- SOLAR SHADES CAN BLOCK HEAT AND GLARE
With temperatures near triple digits during summers months, blocking the suns heat and UV rays are very important. Solar screen shade material can absorb and dissipate 65 – 95% of the sun’s heat. This means less sweat and more relaxation! Less heat is a good thing in the summer. Especially when trying to enjoy the outdoors. Nothing is worse, when you are trying to relax and the sun’s bright rays are blinding! Sunglasses help, but they can only do so much. With exterior patio solar screen shades, the sun’s direct heat and glare are both blocked!
- WILL MAINTAIN YOUR VIEW
Exterior patio shades come in multiple opacities or openness ranges. Depending on the openness factor of the material, you can control the percentage of the UV blockage. Our most popular fabric is 3% or 5% openness, which blocks 97% or 95% of the sun’s UV rays. Even with this great amount of UV and heat blockage, the material is still open enough so that you can maintain your view to the outside through the shades. The solar shades will offer good privacy during the day. Another application that we love to recommend is installing an exterior shade on the outside of large windows, or on sliding doors. This will prevent extreme heat, direct sunlight, and the suns UV rays from entering your home, patio, or sunrooms.
Solar screen shades can be motorized, which allows for easy and smooth operation. Solar screen shades can easily operated from inside your home with a remote. Motorized solar shades can also be very impressive feature to show off when you entertain! Check out the beautiful motorized solar shades that Made in the Shade Austin Installed. Even if there are multiple shades, one remote can open are close all your shades at once.
- BLOCK WIND AND STOP INSECT
Exterior shades are not usually recommended for fighting high winds or inclement weather, but it does limit wind coming through during cold months, and the ShyZip product comes with a wind rating of 50-60 mph. This system uses side tracks and a zipper system to seal the edges and pull the material tight. In addition to blocking wind. My least favorite thing on the planet is a mosquito. When trying to enjoy the outdoors. We have a great solution! Insolroll’s retractable insect screens are sealed on 4 sides to keep bugs out. Patio space that could be wide open or closed to prevent bugs and heat or even be totally private when needed is something to consider. We certainly love them and they would add more function and fun to your space.
