Blocking the sun on your home before it enters a window is the most effective way to reduce heat gain and in turn, lower your energy costs for air conditioning. Sun shades roll down when you need heat protection and roll up when you don’t. Therefore, sun shades are the perfect window solution for extreme sun exposure. Solar shades can be mounted on either the outside of the windows or on the inside and block up to 97% of the sun’s heat and UV rays. Like sunglasses for your windows, solar shades enhance the view by filtering the sun and reducing unwanted glare. Solar shades can be utilized in two ways. On hot days, heat gain can be controlled by rolling down solar shades to block the heat. And in the winter, you may prefer to have shades rolled up tomaximize solar heat. Solar shades can be used alone on the exterior of your home or layered with draperies or valance treatments on the interior. They are perfect for the protection of valuable furnishings and interior finishes, including flooring, rugs, walls and pianos. Solar shades are custom made for windows up to 120″ wide x 120″ high.

Printed shades for residential applications make ultimate customization possible as well. Custom print patterns, printed art works, and photographs allow a homeowner to uniquely personalize their space with a one-of-a kind window treatment. Printing can be done on the interior or exterior of the shade.
