Our Premium Light Filtering Solar Shade is innovative, attractive, and requires minimal effort to install and operate. Solar shades differ from roller shades in that the fabric base is a woven screen-like material that provides both UV protection and a view...but how much view? That is up to you! With our custom solar shades, you can choose between 1%, 3%, and 5% openness. As the openness increases, the fabric weave becomes more transparent, offering a better view of the outdoors.
