Sun Control Screens
According to the Department of Housing & Urban Development, “A good way to keep your house cool in the summer is to shade it from the outside. 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.” Solar Screening blocks up to 90% of the sun’s harmful rays and can save up to 20% in energy cost.
Stationary Sun Control Screens
Our exterior sun control screens install similar to insect screens to help cool your home by reflecting, absorbing & dispersing solar heat & glare before it penetrates the glass in your windows & doors. Not only will they increase your level of comfort but they can pay for themselves over time with energy savings and increasing the life of your window coverings, carpeting and furnishings. They also provide more privacy. What is amazing is how good the outward visibility is. Honestly – you have to see it to believe it! Not only are sun control screens more effective than tint but they are also more flexible because they can easily be removed.
