Solar Shades for any Home

Great classics never die, they just keep reinventing themselves. Solar window shades and roller shades are one of those timeless products that just get better all the time. The plain white roller shade of old has gone by the wayside. In its place are beautiful fabrics, colors and textures designed to give even the simplest window a beautiful new look.

Sun protection for your home

Once only used in commercial settings, solar shades (also called solar screens, solar window shades or just screen shades) have become a standard for residential properties as well. Typically, solar shades are woven to let the sun in and to let the homeowner view out. Solar shading reduces glare, offers UV protection and helps to keep energy bills in check.

A clean, modern look for your windows

The roller shades of days gone by are nothing like today's shades, which offer a fusion of modern design and technology. Made from unique woven fabrics, they diffuse and control light from sheers to fully room darkening. The new clutch roller system allows for smooth reliable operation and added safety.

Combining two window shades in one headrail is a great way to control glare during the day with a screen shade and the ability to lower a blackout or privacy shade in the evening. This is a great system for waterfront homes as well as other high traffic areas.
