Major Solar Shade Manufacturer


Insolroll logo

Innovative Openings began manufacturing solar screen 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 set the Insolroll product apart in the industry.

35 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.

  • Dual Shades– 2 shades in a single window treatment combine solar shades and blackout shades or sheer shades and blackout shades
