How solar screen shades work

How solar screen shades work diagram

Insolroll® Solar Screen Shades utilize a fabric mesh that reflects and absorb the harsh sunlight, blocking up to 97% of glare and ultraviolet rays. These PVC coated solar fabrics are incredibly durable and easy to clean.

  • Solar shade fabrics are woven to precise standards
  • Openness, or "density"- the amount of surface area of the fabric left open affects both view-through and performance
  • 3% - 10% openness fabrics provide excellent levels of view-through in combination with excellent levels of solar performance
  • Dark colored fabrics provide more glare reduction and better view-through
  • Light colored fabrics provide more heat reduction and diffuse interior light.
  • High performance fabrics provide excellent glare and heat reduction as well as excellent view-through regardless of color.

Innovative Openings offers complete measuring and installation service across the Colorado front range and mountain resort areas, including Denver, Boulder, Fort Collins, Breckenridge, Vail, & Aspen.

Fixed Skylight Shades & Angle Top Shades

Skylight Shades

Overhead window skylight solar shade
Skylights and overhead glass are a popular design feature in large buildings.


Skylights can allow enough heat gain into a big or small space to make it uncomfortably hot and bright. Fixed solar screen shades are the clear solution:

  • Daylighting
  • Atmosphere/ambiance
  • Control heat and glare
  • Protect skin, eyes and furnishings from damaging UV rays
  • Leave the view and connection to the outside

residential skylight with fixed solar screen shade
Residential skylight solar shades provide an easy solution to a hot problem.


  • Solar Shades are a low-cost alternative to expensive overhead shading systems for some of the hardest windows to treat
  • Maintain the connection to the outdoors
  • Spring tension rods secure fixed solar shades, making them easily removable for cleaning or if more sunlight is desired for heat gain in the winter months.

Fixed Angle Top Shades (Trapezoid Solar Shades)
