How solar screen shades work

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
