Shades & Canopies

Solar Shades

Sun when you want it, shade when you don't

Protect your home from the sun with a motorized exterior solar shade.  A little help to control the sun, providing privacy and shade!

The most efficient way to block the heat of the sun before it has a chance to heat the window glass!  Solar shades can block the sun's heat while still providing visibility to the outside. 


They pay for themselves year after year in reduced energy costs of cooling your home or business.  In addition they protect furnishings from harmful UV rays that may cause fabric to fade.  The shade fabric is available in a variety of colors, weaves and styles.

  • Polyester and fiberglass screen is available in 5% to 40% fabric openness to control how much light you want to enter your home!
  • Motorized options for joined units include shared operators which control all joined shades with one push of a button, or separate operators to adjust each shade independently.
  • Exterior shades glide along stainless steel cables, rods or heavy duty aluminum extruded tracks.
  • Optional Valance designs available.
