Solar & Insect Screens
Exterior Solar Shades are the best defense against the heat. They started in Europe as a way to keep buildings cool. Because they absorb the solar radiation before it passes through and needs to be reflected out, they keep the interior much cooler. Darker colors on the exterior absorb more light and are therefore 10% more effective than light colors against the heat. The tighter the weave, the more sun they block and therefore the cooler you are on the inside. These shades are also great for shading and protecting your lanai. Expand your comfortable living space and even gaurd your windows from the errant golf ball - all while maintaining your view! For those of us living on Kauai, we know how precious a shady place to relax and enjoy the view can be. Solar shades can help to make your lanai experience a pleasurable one. A wide selection of fabrics, hardware and finishing options are provided by our trusted manufacturers.
Simple & Efficient
Classic solar shades are a lanai staple in the islands. These shades can be manually controlled or motorized. They come in varying weaves, which allow you to choose how much sun to let through. They can also be helpful in deterring light winds and rain.
For windy and commercial spaces, we recommend shades with guide cables or built in track systems. Hand cranks are a cost efficient choice for controls and motorization is also available.
This motorized application is like adding on an addition to your home - it may become your favorite spot to hang out! The simple press of a button creates a mosquito free sanctuary.
