Oasis® 2900 Patio Insect Shades
Oasis® 2900 Patio Insect Shades provide sun protection and & keep the bugs out!
The Oasis® Patio Insect Shade does both—blocks the heat and UV rays and seals out insects with an exclusive track system that literally zips you inside, safe and comfortable on your patio at dusk. We have fabrics exclusively for insect protection that provide minimal sun protection, and we have a whole array of fabrics that provide top shelf sun protection AND seal out insects! And you can still see the sun set because the screen doesn’t block the view.
Our top-of-the-line retractable patio insect shades keep fabric taut in breezy conditions
Solar screen shades won’t flap around in the breeze with our ShyZIP captured edge system that spreads the wind stress across both tracks keeping shades taut in windy conditions. We have tested our shades in the down position if very breezy conditions. The captured edge system has prevented the fabric from blowing around and provided a wind break on the patio.
Note on high winds: If the shades are down, they can be retracted in windy conditions. We do not recommend rolling any patio shade down in high wind conditions.
Oasis 2900 Retractable Insect Shades roll down at the touch of a switch
Imagine the convenience of converting an open air room into a screened in porch in 10 seconds! Fully retractable, Oasis® 2900 Solar Insect Shades are the perfect solution, maintaining your view when lowered, and retractable to any level as needed. When the sun or insects are not a problem, raise your shades and enjoy the open air once again. That’s the beauty of Oasis 2900 Patio Shades- on-demand insect, heat, glare control and privacy.
All Oasis 2900 Patio Insect Shades are motorized for easy operation. Shades can be programmed individually or as a group. Insolroll can even provide an interface module for connecting shades to an iPad or home automation system.
Oasis 2900 for windows, folding glass walls, and garage door openings
Insolroll Oasis® 2900 Solar Insect Shades are available up to 19′ wide in a single shade. Making wider shades makes this product an ideal solution for shading patio areas, windows, doors and garages. Outdoor living lifestyles continue to evolve, bringing new ideas for residential and commercial architecture. Folding, retractable walls of windows allow for very large openings to the outdoors and join the traditional lanai as a modern lifestyle enhancement. Garages and spaces with garage style door openings are another perfect application example. Sometimes, conditions are just right to keep these openings open, but sometimes, sun protection and insect protection are needed to make it possible to enjoy these spaces.
With growing concerns about West Nile disease and now Zika virus, insect protection may be just as important as sun protection and we feel we’ve got the answer zipped up.

Motorized shades for easy, convenient operation

Motorized operation is convenient, efficient, and compatible with Insolroll’s Simplified Building Controls and Home Automation Integration Systems. Motorization offers trouble-free operation of oversized or hard-to-reach shades. Convenient control options allow shades to operate individually, in groups, or automatically. No more dangling cords, ensuring a clean appearance and eliminating child-safety issues.
Insolroll utilizes IQM quiet motor technology in all Oasis 2900 shades. We use an 110 volt AC tubular type directional motor that has been the industry standard for over 50 years. These motors are available with directional wires for hard-wired control or with built-radio controls and include built-in limit and thermal overload switches.
Oasis® 2900 Patio Insect Shade system hardware
5″ x 5 1/2″ Extruded Aluminum Headbox
Our Solar Patio Insect Shades come with a durable and attractive 5-sided aluminum headbox. Hardware is available in 3 colors (white, tan, & bronze) to coordinate with any patio design or color scheme. Its function is both fabric protection and attractiveness. For new construction patio applications, a hidden shade with a “built-in” appearance may be desired. Learn more about our Exposed Bracket/Pocket option (link to exposed bracket tab).
Fabric edges zipper-captured and secured
The Oasis® 2900 features fabric side edges that are zipper-captured and secured in a side track. Proven and patented ShyZip technology keeps the fabric taut and in place, and seals out insects. The bottom edge of the fabric has a metal bottom rail with an enhanced 1″ gasket strip which provides a better seal on uneven surfaces such as concrete.
How the Oasis® 2900 Patio Insect Shade stops insects
The Shy-Zip system is uniquely designed to keep fabric taut and in place, enhancing the functionality of the shade system and making it possible to seal insects OUT. Fabric edges remain in the track, and are heat-sealed to the zipper edge, so there will never be fabric fraying.The bottom rail uses a large, 1″ pliable gasket strip, which is very effective at sealing uneven surfaces on a concrete patio or garage floor, or a floor surface that has texturing or is not level. The bottom rail also seals and protects the fabric edge, so again, there will be no fraying. The system is designed to be durable, and provide many years of service.
Insolroll utilizes time proven SHY Zip technology to seal the edges of the shade. SHY Zip is a product of the SHY Co. Ltd. of Japan, distributed exclusively in North America by its authorized sub-licensees.
Specialized fabrics for insect control
TuffScreen and TuffScreen NoSeeUm fabrics are specifically designed to keep insects OUT when the shades are fully lowered. Both fabrics feature very small apertures to stop smaller insects, with NoSeeUm having an aperture small enough to stop the biting midges known as “NoSeeUms” found if coastal Florida and the Caribbean. Although they stop insects from entering, TuffScreen and TuffScreen NoSeeUm fabrics provide excellent view through.
“Built-in” options for Oasis® 2900 Retractable Insect Shades
Exposed bracket for pocket mount or wall mount
Insolroll has developed an exposed bracket system for the installation of Oasis® 2900 shades into a site-built pocket in a new construction scenario. This can be done if you are building a new home, or a new patio structure. A recessed space, or “pocket” is built into the ceiling of the patio structure, and the Oasis® 2900 shade is installed on exposed brackets inside. When the shade is fully raised, it is completely out of sight.
Oasis 2900 side tracks are easy to detail into masonry columns. U-track can be supplied during construction to create a void for our ShyZIP side track.
U-track for recessed side track applications
For applications with masonry and other uneven surfaces, Insolroll’s U-track can be built into columns to house the side track with a clean fit.
