SUN SHADES

Block the sun, not your view.

When you’ve got too much sun (looking at you, west-facing patios) a Sun Shade is the perfect solution. Sun Shades block 95% of UV rays, but keep great visibility, making your outdoor space usable again. Rolled up or rolled down, our sleek designs and fabric variety will keep your patio looking great.

  • Push-button retractable operation.
  • Amazon Alexa, Google Home, and other smart device integrations.
  • Automatic retraction and extension based on sun and wind conditions.
  •  Integration with existing home automation systems.

Other Considerations
  • When choosing a fabric and outward visibility is a concern, color is important. Choosing a light color will be harder to see out of than a dark one.
  • Sun Shades hold up well to wind. For the windiest applications or to create a full enclosure, we use specialized tracks and a zipper edge sewn onto the fabric. The zipper rides in the track and will not pull out even during extreme winds.
  • All components are replaceable. Fabric, cranks, motor, tracks, etc. 

Frequently Asked Questions

What is an on-site consultation like?

We like to bring samples to show how your Sun Shade operate and what it will look like in your outdoor space. A representative will generally show you colors of fabrics, metals, explain anything specific you might need to understand given your mounting situation and application. Once your representative gets measurements and you decide what you like, they are able to give you pricing on the spot. 

Typically, the whole process lasts around 30 minutes.

Privacy is important to me. What are my options?

Fabrics come in a variety of densities, starting at 65% light-blocking and going to 97%, or even full blackout. When the sun is up, you will get great privacy from anything 90%+ dense. When your area is backlit and it is dark outside later in the evening, a 97% fabric will allow for neighbors to see some figures and shapes, but not more detail than that. 

How do the Sun Shade components hold up over time?

Our Sun Shades are the industry standard for quality. We use thick-guage aluminum tracks and mounting brackets, weather resistant vinyl-coated polyester fabric, and durable epoxy metal coating. All of these elements mean your shade will look and perform like new for a long time. 

The only issues we have with these are generally manufacturing errors and are covered under warranty.

What is your lead time?

Our lead time varies throughout the season. Typically we expect around a five week lead time late in the spring and early summer. Mid summer through the fall is about a three week lead time, and other parts of the year we can run as low as two weeks out.
