Solar Shades


Protect your home or sunroom from the sun with Betterliving’s motorized exterior solar shades that help you control the sun from the outside, providing privacy and shade.

The most efficient way to block the heat of the sun is from the outside –
before it has a chance to heat the window glass! Solar shades can block the sun’s heat while still providing visibility to the outside.

Roll up solar shades pay for themselves year after year in reduced energy costs and protect your furnishings from harmful UV rays that may cause fading. The perfect solution for you sunroom to block heat or add privacy. Fabric available in a variety of colors, weaves and styles.

  • Shades can be made from acrylic exterior awning fabric, or with PVC coated polyester or fiberglass screen. Polyester and fiberglass screen is available in 5% to 40% openness to control how much light you want to enter your home!
  • Motorized options for joined units include common operators which control all joined shades with one push of a button, or separate operators to give you flexibility to adjust each shade independently.
Solar Shades

Our Series I solar shades are available with various guide mechanisms, like aircraft cable, stainless rod or extruded aluminum channel. The extruded channel model is also available with a pop-out awning feature.

This model suits residential window shading including sunrooms and solariums but is also ideal for commercial sun control applications.

Series II solar shades feature zipper technology, to keep out pesky insects and control the weather more effectively. They also filter out more light than our Series I model.

Convert you garage or porch into a screen room with our Phifer Tuff Screen fabric. Automate your sun shade with our motor and remote control options.
