Solar Screens Block UV Rays in Style

Solar screens — also called screen shades — offer two major benefits:

  • Blocking the sun and its harmful UV rays
  • Maintaining your view outside.

Solar screens mount on the inside of your window are made of a single layer of light fabric used with a traditional roller shade bar that blends well into almost any décor. At Window Products, with showrooms in both Southbury and Branford CT, we offer a variety of high quality solar screen shades.

Residential and Commercial Uses of Screen Shades

Both residential and commercial customers enjoy the style and function of solar screens. For residential customers, screen shades are perfect for kitchens and living areas where natural light is welcome but needs to be muted without reducing the view. Screen shades are also popular for commercial customers such as office buildings or restaurants, typically with a 5% openness factor.

Solar Screen Design Options

Available in two styles, Hunter Douglas Designer Screen Shades have a simplistic design that is full of style and function. Like all Hunter Douglas window coverings, screen shades are designed with expert craftsmanship and precise functionality. The traditional roller screen shade is made with fabric that easily rolls up and down.

Motorize Your Solar Screens

For the ultimate convenience, we offer the PowerRise 2.0 with Platinum Technology motorized system that allows customers to operate their screen shades with a touch of a button or through the innovative Platinum App for use with your smartphone or tablet. The most common lifting system for roller screen shades is standard clutch system with a continuous cord loop. Pulling gently on the cord causes the clutch to rotate the metal roller tube, which raises or lowers the shade and holds it in place. For enhanced child and pet safety, cordless lifting systems that use the bottom bar or decorative pulls for operation are also available for screen shades.
