Solar Shades in Bradenton & Sarasota, FL

Imagine if you could maintain your beautiful outdoor view while gently filtering and diffusing the light entering your window or lanai. When you don’t want to block your view but want to control the amount of light and heat that enters a room, solar shades are the solution! Artistically crafted from an open weave, mesh material, solar shades are perfect for rooms that tend to be bathed in sunlight. They reduce the glare on your television and computer screens and provide a stylish way to protect your valuable furnishings from harmful UV rays. Often referred to as solar screens, sun shades or “sunglasses” for your windows, these well-designed shades can also be mounted outside on a porch or patio. Exterior solar shades are constructed with resilient PVC-covered polyester fabric that can be easily wiped down for cleaning.

Solar shades are energy efficient with a touch of flair. This classic style has a dramatic impact, creating the perfect ambiance through the regulation of solar energy. They block solar heat to keep temperatures at a comfortable level and protect furniture and carpets while providing a simple and streamline fit for any décor. They capture a unique feel and create a lasting visual imprint. The impressive collection of fabrics is available in a wide range of colors and styles at many levels of openness factors.

The choice of color and style can turn a room into a bold statement or perfectly complement a traditional style:

Dark color fabrics - provide excellent glare control and are excellent for emphasizing the outside view. They also reflect less heat than light fabrics, absorbing and keeping it at the window until it dissipates.

Light color fabrics - provide more effective heat control than dark fabrics, reflecting heat away from the room. They also let more visible light through, reducing the transparency of the outside view but leaving the room feeling very bright and cheerful.

High performance reflective fabrics - provide ultimate heat and glare control through a silver, reflective backing on the exterior that still allows for a partial outside view.

The choice of openness determines the clarity of your view. The higher the openness factor and the darker the fabric, the clearer your view.

Modern solar shades are now enhanced with extraordinary operating systems, featuring cordless, clutch operated or motorized. With the press of a button or a slight pull motion, these shades can be raised, lowered or stopped at any level. Creating daytime privacy while preserving your view of the outside has never been easier.
