Building with Shades of GreenInsolroll® Shades of Green logo

All of Insolroll’s Solar Screen Shades conserve energy, by decreasing cooling costs and allowing passive solar practice as well as allowing maximum use of natural daylight in a building to decrease the need for artificial lighting. This makes them an inherently green choice. A number of our solar screen fabrics are also green in terms of their material content; we have GreenGuard Indoor Air Quality Certified fabric choices, PVC-Free fabric choices, Cradle to Cradle Silver Certified fabric, and fabric that is both recyclable and made from recycled content.

High performance solar shade fabric collection

High performance solar screen fabrics have been engineered to provide the highest visual and thermal performance available regardless of color. Both light and dark colors provide excellent glare control, heat control and view-through.

SilverScreen Performance chartThe Silver Sweet Spot

Typical solar screen fabrics can provide effective glare control with dark colors, or energy efficiency with light colors, but not both.

SilverScreen and EnviroScreen provide energy efficiency (low Shading Coefficient) AND effective glare control (low Visible Light Transmission), regardless of color.


SilverScreen metalized fabricSilverScreen solar screen fabric has a highly reflective, fine layer of aluminum vacuum-formed to a PVC-coated fiberglass solar screen fabric (5% +/- openness). It provides excellent view through and excellent heat and glare reduction in all colors.

KoolBlack Technology

Mermet KOOLBLACK fabricEnhances the energy reflectivity of dark colored yarns by increasing their Near Infrared Reflection (NIR). Dark colored common screen fabric provides excellent view-through and glare control, but it also absorbs the heat energy from the near infrared wavelength. A dark fabric with KoolBlack™ Technology allows more solar heat to be reflected, and both the fabric and the room stay cooler, making its energy efficiency comparable to light colored fabrics.

Exceptional glare control, comfortable view-through and elegant streetside aesthetics while

“Built-in” shades installed in a site-built or extruded pocket

Solar Screen Shades in Recessed Pocket

In new constructions situations, shades can be installed in a cavity above the ceiling, either in an Extruded Shade Pocket or a Site-built Pocket. When the shade is lowered, no hardware or roller is seen at all, and when the shade is raised, it disappears out of site into the pocket.

See detail drawings of Extruded Pocket and Site-Built Pocket

We have 2 pocket options for installing and concealing shades:

shades for natural lighting control

  • Extruded Shade Pocket:  5″ x 5 1/2″; ideal for grid- and drop-ceilings; in 2 colors.
  • Site-built Shade Pocket, with Access Flap and Hanger:  Built at the time of construction, this is a cavity into which the shade roller is installed. Access Flap & Hanger Accessories provide easy access to the shade roller when necessary. Allows shades to be recessed at the top on angled and arched windows for the cleanest possible look in such a design. Available in white.
