Solar shades may look like the classic tropical window shades you remember, but these window shades are woven of an all-weather polyethylene fabric that keeps out about 88% of the sun's heat and glare, yet allows light breezes through.
By using solar shades, you help reduce indoor temperature, while still allowing some light to filter in so you can keep an eye on the "goings-on" outside. Plus you'll love the breezy, decorator touch these window shades add to your home.
These roll-up solar shades are a great choice for patio enclosures, sunrooms, even outdoor porches. The roll-up window shade hangs inside or outside your window, raises and lowers with a beaded pull-cord, and clutch-locks at any height. Weather-resistant mounting hardware is included with each window shade.
No express delivery.
Benefits of Roll-Up Solar Shades:
The product material does as it claims. The heat and sun reduction is excellent. the product is lightweight but sturdy.
The slight down side is the installation process. A slight bit more than just hanging. However overall excellent.
Haven't hung these yet, but they seem great. We ordered 6 for our 3-season room and will install them in the spring of 2010. They are exactly as pictured and advertised. The only reason I gave 4 stars out of 5 is because we haven't actually used them. We opened each box and the shades checked out fine. The raising/lowering mechanism seems to function properly too.
Easy to install, came in a few days.
Keeps the sun out but the light in. Put them end to end, easy to change pull chain.
Wind featrure hooks are a good idea.
Our shade worked out perfect. Love it!!
We purchased two of the solar shades for our patio to help block the setting sun. They work great! We had to buy additional hardware to hang them securely. Because we don't have a railing on our patio, we also had to buy ties to secure them to the ground when lowered so they wouldn't blow around.
the shade works great for my sun blazing deck. the shade brings the heat way down. My girl friend loves it and that makes me happy;)
These shades were exactly what we were looking for to stop the beaming sun on our porch without making us feel closed in since you can see through them.
Very nice, quality shade. I only have 1 complaint - when ordering, it tells the (strange) names of the colors for the shade, but doesn't match a picture of the colored shade with the name, so, in our case we guessed between 2 names and unfortunately picked the wrong one. Still a nice shade for a nice price though!
Sturdy, durable, easy to install, adds a decorative touch as well as a useful energy saver.
I like the look and it works great. The install directions are a bit lacking and then screws that some with it are useless they kept breaking.
Received shipment promptly. Good value for the price. Installed easily. Works exactly as described.
The was a perfect inexpensive way to combat direct sunlight to our patio. The rollers work smoothly, it's easy to operate and it definitely keeps the direct sunlight out. The color contrast compliments the patio enclosure. I would highly recommend this purchase.
This product is constructed very nicely and was easy to install. The price was reasonable too. I was very satisfied with this product
Just as advertised. Thanks for a great product!
From quality to appearance to value this is an outstanding product.
Our shade arrived and within 30imutes my husband and I had it installed on our porch.
This was the most inexpensive/elegant solution to sun streaming into my house through the rear sliding glass doors. Other options could have cost up to $500. Installation was pretty easy after I figured out how to switch the cord to the other side. Breezes flow through but the sun is blocked. I can feel a 5 - 10 degree difference immediately when the shade is down. I would like to have had an 8 foot length available.
Needed a shade for my outdoor kitchen which faces due west. The evening sun is very hot in Texas but this shade dies the trick, blocking the direct heat and providing some relief. As the kitchen has a constant breeze and a 6x8 shade catches a lot of wind, I am using some removavle hooks on the backsplash of the counter to hold the shade in place. The shade comes with metal loops on the bottom rail so these easily catch the hooks. Works great and easy to install.
the shade does as was advertised - the east morning sun is eliminated and my room is cooler through out the day - it was easy to install and pulls up/down smoothly
We really enjoy our solar shades! We are the envy of the neighborhood. We live in a condo and the shades match our decor perfectly. They really come in handy during the morning sun and great at night when we want a little privacy on the patio. We would recommend this product to anyone who wants shade from the sun and privacy from the neighbors.
The product was delivered quickly and the item was perfect and installed easily. We are extremely happy with this purchase. Thank you, Sky Mall!!!
My fault for not investigating deeper, but the item did not fit my intended application.
I needed the LENGTH to be 8' Feet, not the WIDTH. Otherwise the quality and mechanics were Exactly what I was needing...hated to send them back. Customer service and the return was smooth.
Excellent and practical item for our back porch.
Easy to up, good sun shade ( I am in Arizona ), look rich and tidy and roll up and down with ease. I shopped around a lot before I happen to see these and I am totally satisfied.
I have installed these yet but they look like they will meet my needs for the front screened in porch that faces west.
We originally ordered 4 Roll up shades just to block the late day sun on our screened backporch. We liked them so much, we went back and ordered more for the sides of the porch just for the look. They look great and friends have commented on how how nice they are. Had an issue with one shade when received as the pull was manufactured backwards, yet my husband was easliy able to fix it.
The quality of this product for this price floored me. I just wish i didn't have to return it. I need a 7 x 6 shade and this only came in three sizes. You can bet I will be ordering this in a heartbeat if it ever comes out in the size I need.
I received the shade and the metal rod was bent in 3 places. Also missing end caps for bottom rail. Please send to me
Shade roll up mechanism is poorly designed and will probably not last the summer.
Would not recommend.
I purchased my first one a few years ago. Still in great shape and working order. Will be ordering more.
It was as expected...works good to block Western sun into my home office.
I bought one to see how it would work and Iove it. Works great and good price. Also easy to install. I am buying a second one.
Easy to put up. However they do not kept out the late afternoon sun
as well as I would wanted Helps a little but still lets a lot of sun into the house.
Three individual shades. They do not all go up evenly. Probably would not purchase again.
Excellent product and value. Hard to find 48 inch width blinds and these are perfect. Easy to install and allos some light through, which is also great.
Easy to install, east to use
The solar shade has increased our enjoyment immensly when relaxing on our front porch. We canstill see the beautifal Colorado sunsets but don't have the glare ogf the sun to contend with as the sun goes down.
We are happy with the shade. Easy for my husband to install. Would have been too difficult for me to do. End caps come off too easy. Already lost one. Would like a 10 ft shade offering as it would fit our space better. However, the 8 ft works fine.
It is too big! I need the 6 foot width.
I like the shade but felt it was hard to install there was very little mounting adjustment.
The roll-up shades are great! I have tried several options to filter the sun coming into my west-facing windows and these are the best yet. They roll up very easily, and they roll ALL the way up--nothing bulky at the top.
We ordered three of these shades. It has taken us forever to get something we could lower so we could sit on our front porch in the afternoons without being blinded. They went up easily and are exactly as described. They even have loops to secure them in the down position in case of wind etc. They aren't for storm protection but are definitely sun shades.
