Extend your outdoor living space in cool comfort with a tension shade system. Quality shade protection for large decks and patios, glass roofs or pergolas, tension systems are the perfect solution for anyone wishing to spend more time enjoying the outdoors with family and friends. The sleek, modern shade limits the glare and heat of the sun, creating a soft, comfortable light underneath. Just push a button for shade when you need it and retract the fabric back into its protective cassette when not in use.
Tension shades systems can be mounted to an exterior wall or installed above or below a glass roof or pergola.
Exterior Solar Shades
When spectacular views call for wide expanses of glass, enjoy the view in comfort with energy efficient, exterior solar shades. These shades preserve your view to the outside while filtering 80-99% of UV rays from heating your window glass and bringing that heat inside your home. By keeping the interior cooler, they lower your air conditioning costs and continue to pay for themselves year after year. Exterior screens outperform interior blinds in reducing cooling costs and heat loss in winter, saving you even more.
Betterliving Exterior Solar Shades add privacy, protect interior furnishings from fading and eliminate sun glare. They are custom designed and manufactured with acrylic fabric, PVC coated polyester or fiberglass screen in a variety of colours and openness factor to control how much light and heat enter your home.
