Exterior Sun Shades for Windows


Blocking the sun on the exterior of a home or business before it enters a window is the most effective way to reduce heat gain.

Oasis® 2700 Exterior Window Sun Shades keep homes cool!

Exterior window sun shades  roll down to block the heatOasis® 2700 Exterior Sun Shades with solar screen fabric are the perfect window solution for extreme sun exposures.  Utilizing a European concept, exterior solar shades mount on the outside of the windows and block up to 97% of the heat and UV rays before the sun enters through the window.  Exterior sun shades roll down when you need heat protection and roll up when you don’t.

Energy Efficient Exterior Sun Shading for Windows and Patio Doors

Blocking the sun before it enters the window is twice as energy efficient as trying to reflect the heat back through the window like interior window treatments.  The bulk of the heat is either absorbed by the screen and then dissipated or reflected to the outdoors.  Exterior Solar Screen Shades are custom made for windows up to 120″ wide x 120″ high.

Exterior Sun Shades are Like Sunglasses for Windows

Passive Solar Control with Exterior Window Sun Shades

Efficient shading is even more critical in passive solar applications with extensive south-facing glass.  In some climates you may prefer to have shades retracted to maximize solar heat gain in the winter.

High Performance Interior Solar Screen Shades may be a better office glare control solution

Oasis 2700 Exterior Sun Shade Solar Screen Fabric Collection

It's easy to find the perfect fabric for your exterior sun shades, because Insolroll has a large collection with varied textures, colors and fabric openness. All of our Oasis® fabrics are made from either  PVC-coated fiberglass or polyester mesh, which gives them durability for the outdoors. A broad range of openness provides options for a balance between heat and glare control and view-through to the outside.

Color and openness (or density) affect the solar performance qualities of a fabric. Light colored fabrics are more effective at heat reduction, while a dark colored fabric is more effective at glare reduction and affords the best view-through. Most fabrics are tested by their manufacturers to determine their solar performance, and this data is helpful in choosing the fabric that best meets your needs.
