Commercial Roller & Solar Shades

Our commercial roller and solar shades allow Colorado businesses to control glare, heat, and UV rays while balancing natural light and a view of the outdoors. We’ve been designing and installing commercial roller and solar shade solutions for offices, restaurants, retail stores, hotels, hospitals, schools and more since 1980.

Insolroll Commercial Shading Systems

Innovative Openings began manufacturing solar shades and roller shades in 1983, having identified the significant energy impact and positive commercial environmental effects of this innovative class of window covering. In response to the shortcomings of the available product, Rick Pease and Dave Friedlander founded Insolroll Window Shading Systems with a mission to build high quality solar shading systems with the best available fabrics, and standard features and options that immediately distinguished the Insolroll product in the industry.

Over 40 years later, Insolroll is an award-winning, nationally known manufacturer, with a network of installing dealers across North America. Innovative Openings was the first of these dealers, and set the bar in Colorado for commercial solar shades.

Insolroll Brand Commercial Roller Shades

  • Solar Shades: Block the sun, not the view– control glare, heat and damaging UV rays, while maintaining a connection to the outside world
  • Blackout Shades: for audio-visual applications, room-darkening and establishing privacy
  • Decorative Shades: Insolroll offers textured, decorative fabrics with the fire rating and other commercial qualities you need. See below for commercial decorative fabrics.
  • Dual Shades: 2 shades in a single window treatment combine solar shades and blackout shades or sheer shades and blackout shades
  • Translucent Shades: light filtering shades with required commercial properties, for applications where privacy is needed but light flow is desired, and/or where the view is not an asset. See below for commercial translucent fabrics.
  • Patio Shades and Retractable Insect Screens: Exterior grade solar or translucent shades for outdoor areas so popular in restaurants, and increasingly part of the design plan for new construction in multiple industries. See below for commercial patio shade fabrics.

Commercial Motorized Shades

Motorized commercial shades increase energy efficiency as well as employee efficiency. Enhance customer experience with the ability to raise or lower shades without intruding on their space. Shades don’t need to be handled, prolonging life, and large, heavy shades can be raised and lowered with ease.

Insolroll motorized interior and exterior roller shades can be connected to apps or integrated with building control systems. Innovative Openings provides customized design, sales and installation, including free 60 day design, estimating and detailing services for builders, architects and interior designers.
