Patio sun shades and solar shades effectively block the sun from patio and outdoor living areas while still allowing the view. Today’s patio shades are designed to be architecturally pleasing, complementing your home’s exterior as well as providing protection from the sun’s heat and glare, and even golf balls and insects. 4 distinct models of Oasis® Patio Shades provide solutions for patios, pergolas and porches made of wood, brick, stone or stucco, and look good doing it.

Patio Sun Shade FAQs
Where are Insolroll shades made?
Insolroll shades are made right next door to us in Louisville, Colorado! They also feature many fabric choices that are woven in the USA.
What are the best ways to shade a patio?
Fully retractable Oasis patio shades provide protection from heat, glare, UV, and golf balls when you need it, but you can also roll them up to enjoy your open-air patio when you don't. With 4 distinct models to fit your particular patio, and fabrics for sun management and view-through, privacy, light-blocking, insects and protection from weather, we've got solutions!
Do patio shades block golf balls?
They sure do! Insolroll's Oasis 2800 and 2900 patio shades can protect your patio from errant golf balls. When a golf ball strikes the outside of the shade, the force of the impact is spread across fabric panel and the golf ball falls to the ground.
Can you see through patio sun shade fabric?
Yes! Different solar fabrics provide differing levels of view-through related to fabric weave (or openness) and color. Here's a link to our Oasis 2800 fabric options.
