Kauai Exterior Solar Shades

Extend the living space of your home and connect with nature comfortably. With the addition of Exterior Solar Shades, your lanai can also be protected from intense sun, excessive heat and harmful UV rays. Exterior solar shades also block the sun before its rays reach the glass panes and impact the interior. Have them mounted directly outside of your home's window frames for an inconspicous look.

Since these shades tend to be larger and installed in higher, harder-to-access areas, they pair perfectly with a motorized lift. The light streaming in to your patio can be controlled with the touch of a button.

One of our favorite aspects of solar shades is the level of privacy they provide while maintaining a degree of your view, depending on which level of visibility you choose.
 


Motorized Insect Screens

How Retractable Insect Screens Work

Sun & Insect Control

Sealed with SHY Zip® zipper technology to keep out mosquitoes. The Oasis 2900 system, manufactured by Insolroll, seals all four sides of the screen when lowered, providing on-demand insect protection. Retractable Insect Screens can be fully retracting when you don’t want a screen. They can be completely up, completely down, or at any point in between - all at the press of a button. When bugs are not a problem, enjoy the open air, but when dusk falls and mosquitoes come out, put your shades down.  Be comfortable, with a full view of your outdoor surroundings AND without being bothered by bugs! These shades also provide a level of UV protection and relief from the heat of then sun.


Kauai's Roller Shades

The Beautiful Simplicity of Roller Shades

Simply put - Roller Shades are awesome. They are an ideal treatment for Kauai and let me tell you why. They are nothing like the roller shades of yesteryear that would go slamming up to the top when released.  In these modern times, the cordless roller shade may be released and it will slowly rise up to the top, or be adjusted to whatever height you desire. Motorization is also available..you can even use rechargeable batteries that only need to be rotated every 2 years, under normal use. Motorization is ideal for those hard to reach windows and in commercial applications. There are a wide variety of materials that can be used in this practical application. Many mold and mildew resistant materials look as if they are made of natural fibers, leaving you with a treatment that can weather the climate and fit in with the decor. This style of material can also be used in a sliding panel application for sliding doors, which allows you to coordinate with the rest of your space.
