Retractable Patio Shades and Insect Screens


Have a structured area that you want enclosed occasionally, but that can be completely open other times? Patio sun shades are a great choice for you! With a variety of solar screens, translucent fabrics, and strong insect screens, the Insolroll Oasis line has just what you need. Solar shades in a dark fabric are great for blocking the glare from the sun, but still keeping the view. Lighter solar shade fabrics create more privacy, and reflect heat from the UV rays of the sun. Besides protecting you from UV rays and insects, Oasis patio shades can protect you from flying golf balls too, a threat many homes near golf courses face.
