Exterior Solar Shades make it easy to enjoy the benefits of Solar Shades year-round. Manufactured with exterior-rated components and fabrics, Exterior Shades are installed to the outside of your window or patio to block the sun’s rays before they reach your window, greatly reducing air-conditioning costs. Just like standard Solar Shades, Exterior Solar Shades maintain your view to the outside while protecting your interior from UV rays and reducing glare. Choose darker colors for a better view, lighter colors for better temperature control. Click Here to View Our Solar Screen Openness Guide.
