Saving On Energy Costs With Solar-Shade
Window Screens

solar mesh window screens

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.

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.

Typically, solar screens block all but 10 - 35% of UV rays.
