Saving On Energy Costs With Solar-Shade
Window screens made with any of our solar-shade mesh
options, can significantly block the heat from getting in and keep
your room cooler. Plus, these solar meshes are see-through to the
outside, while drawn curtains are not.
Any way that stops the sun before it gets through the glass is
seven times as good at keeping you cool as blinds or curtains on
the inside. Exterior solar shade screens absorb and dissipate a
large percentage of solar heat and glare before it reaches windows
and doors; this keeps the window glass and home interior cool.
This method of cooling is considered to be superior to glass
tinting, which filters the light along with the UV rays. Solar
screening works by reducing the volume of light without filtering.
As the glass filters sunlight through the tint, it will maintain
heat, which dissipates into the house, making sun control screens
more effective than glass tinting for energy savings.

numerous additional benefits of solar screens. Namely...
Health Benefits of Solar Screens:
There are countless studies that show the damaging affects of UV
rays. These rays are attributed to everything from pre-mature aging
to skin cancer. The EPA recently stated "Scientists have
found that overexposure to UV radiation may suppress proper
functioning of the body's immune system and the skin's natural
defenses." Typically, solar screens block all but
10 - 35% of UV rays.
