Solar shades are fabric window coverings designed to reduce glare and direct sun light and heat while preserving the view to the outside. Solar sun shades come in a variety of styles, colors, and weaves.
Made of a single layer of light filtering fabric rolled on a traditional roller shade barrel, these shades blend well into any decor. Solar roller shades are perfect for kitchens and living areas where natural light is welcomed but needs to be muted without disturbing the view. People love solar screen shades because they preserve the view, minimize direct sunlight, and take up very little window space when open.

Solar sun shades are designed to maximize both views and natural light while minimizing the heat and glare of sunlight. Using the same roller design as standard vinyl and fabric roller shades, sun shades use a variety of textures and weaves to minimize natural light without completely blocking it. This allows you to continue to enjoy the view outside your window even when your shade is closed.
Whether it's a view of a city skyline or your backyard, solar screen shades can help minimize direct sun without blocking the landscape. When privacy is also needed, solar screens can be combined with other window treatments, such as horizontal blinds or drapery.
Each solar shade has an openness factor that relates to the tightness of the weave and the corresponding shade percentage it provides.
A shade's openness factor is indirectly proportional to the amount of shade it provides: The lower the openness factor, the higher the amount of light blockage. For example, a 3% openness factor provides 97% light blockage. Since sun shades are designed to give you greater control over the amount of light you let in and still give you an open view, each has a different openness factor that provides a specific degree of shading. For example, a shade with 5% openness gives approximately 70% shade where as the shades with a 14% openness factor gives you about 60% shade.
Lift types refers to how you will raise and lower your window coverings. Blindster.com offers two lift types for your solar screen shades.
Cordless Spring Roller: Our cordless lift option allows for easy up and down operation and is an important safety consideration for homes with small children or pets. Cordless window treatments also offer a clean, uncluttered look to your room.
Continuous Cord Loop: Another really nice window shade option is the continuous cord loop. These beaded chains feed back into themselves, preventing any cords or chains from dangling or lying on the floor. Simply pull on one end of the chain to raise the shade and gently pull on the other to lower it. The continuous cord loop is the best lifting system for people who like to have precise control over the rise and fall of the shade.
