Solar Screen Shades: All of the Benefits of Shades and a Great View

If you want the benefits of shades without blocking your view, you can have the best of both worlds with solar screen shades. These window treatments are roller shades made with high-tech fabrics which come in a variety of colors, prints, and weaves to control how much solar energy comes in. They prevent glare, filter out harmful UV rays, control heat, and provide privacy – all while still allowing for a quality view of the world outside.

High-performance solar screen shades are made with metallized fabrics which reflect sunlight and heat back outside while also creating a privacy screen. You can see outside, but passersby can’t see in. This window treatment is a great choice for a first-floor office space, a bank, or gym. If your downtown Wilmington bungalow is a little too close to the neighbors’ house, they make for a stylish contemporary window covering. For a far-too-hot sunroom, these reflective shades are must-haves.

Dark-colored solar screen shades allow you to prevent glare from the sun, making them ideal for your home office space, a summer movie marathon, or a poolside getaway. If you prefer a certain ambiance for your living room, library, or restaurant, solar screen shades can be woven for the perfect amount of shade all day long.

Light-colored solar screen shades allow more light in, yet still control for heat — a perfect pick for your sunroom on Topsail Island or screened-in porch on the Cape Fear River.
