Keep the sun out – and save on energy costs!
If your only sun protection is inside your home – you’re losing the energy battle! Long popular in Europe, exterior solar shades block the heat of the sun before it has a chance to heat up the window glass…while reducing glare and protecting your furnishings.
Solar Shades are installed on the outside of your windows, and operate with a remote control from inside the house, store, or building. Choose see-through shade fabrics, or opaque acrylics that block the view. Exterior solar shades keep the beautiful woodwork of your palladium windows in full view inside the house, while shading the glass.
Exterior Solar Shade Design
Protect your home from the sun with motorized solar shades that help you control the sun from the outside. Motorized, retractable shades block the sun's heat – paying for themselves year after year in reduced energy bills and protection of your furnishings from harmful UV rays that may cause fading. Solar shades are custom designed for your home or business with translucent or opaque fabrics in a wide variety of hues.
Exterior Solar Shade Products
Several models and operating systems are available for exterior solar shades, and whole house walls can be operated with a single remote control. Cassolet style shades can accommodate awning windows, and guide options include cables, rods or tracks, with or without side zippers. Aristocrat exterior solar shades are powered by Somfy Motors, the world's leading manufacturer of specialized motors and control systems for shade products.
Solar Shades may also be mounted on the inside of the house to block out the sun, but they are much more effective when mounted outside the windows to prevent some of the heat hitting the glass windows, which will in turn let off heat inside the home.
