Control the Sun from the Outside – Exterior Solar Shades block the sun’s heat, add privacy, and save energy for any business

Studies show that the most efficient way to block the sun’s heat is from the outside. Retractable Solar Shades block the sun’s heat, before it heats up the glass, reducing your energy bill. They also minimize glare and protect your furnishings from damaging UV rays, while adding privacy and ambiance.

Exterior Shades for restaurants


One of the greatest benefits of commercial solar shades for business owners, along with increased comfort for your patrons, is a reduction in energy costs. When placed over glass windows and doors, exterior solar shades reduce solar heat gain and block 78% - 99% of UV rays from hitting that glass and heating it. This reduces the load on your air conditioners while still keeping the interior of your business at a cool, comfortable temperature.
