Screen Material Options for Retractable Outdoor Shades and Screens
Our custom retractable patio screens and shades can be made with a variety of different screen materials. Depending on the purpose of your outdoor living or dining space, our custom screens and shades can be made with an insect mesh or solar mesh.
Insect screens are going to primarily keep bugs and insects out of your Austin home or business, while still blocking some of the harmful UV rays and sunlight. With an insect screen, a looser weave is used allowing for more airflow and light to pass through. Bug screens are flexible enough to be able to be installed almost anywhere outdoors. Enjoy your outdoor space with enhanced privacy and free from pesky bugs with our high-quality patio screens and shades.
Solar screens are meant to keep heat and sunlight out of your patio, resulting in great energy savings. Depending on the material selected, our screens are guaranteed to provide at least 90% UV ray protection and up to 97% UV protection. Our solar screens use a tighter weave with more dense materials allowing for better heat and sunlight protection. Solar screens are ideal for outdoor areas with direct sunlight exposure to prevent excessive heat and harmful UV rays from entering your space.
We carry a line of durable and high-quality screen fabrics from SunTex® with various colors to suit every style. We offer the SunTex 97, 95, and SunTex 90 as options for your screen fabrics. You can select from the type of UV protection you’d like and the openness factor of the weave.
