Exterior Retractable Screens
Exterior Retractable Screens reduce heat gain, glare and fade. To STOP heat gain you must stop it OUTSIDE the glass. Once a light ray passes through glass it converts into a heat ray. You can push very little of it back through the glass. The rest of them remain inside your home until the outside temperature is lower than the inside temperature of your home. Hence the 'greenhouse effect'. That’s why every air conditioner ever made has an air handler or air return. If you don’t get those heat rays out no matter how much cool air you pump in you can’t cool down your home. So stop the light ray before it becomes a heat ray – outside of the glass.
Exterior Retractable Screens can literally make it 9-11 degrees cooler and more with virtually unobstructed viewing.
You can use them on Patios, Windows and Doors. Available in widths up to 20’ and heights up to 12’. If over 20’ wide the fabric needs to be split vertically and coupled at the roll tube.
All larger units need to be Motorized and preferably Automated. Smaller units can be hand cranked.
These units can be built-in during construction. Contact us to meet with you and your architect, builder or designer.
