Why Solar Shades?

  • Protect your interior décor investments from harmful UV rays
  • Reduces undesirable heat gain and lowers your cooling bills
  • Diffuses light, minimizing the glare on television and device screens
  • Utilize uniquely engineered, semi-opaque fabrics let you enjoy outdoor views, without sacrificing sun protection
  • Can be layered with drapery or combine with a roller shade in a dual shade for nighttime privacy

Solar shades are available in a wide variety of colors, patterns and openness levels. These levels (1% to 10%) determine the amount of UV blocking. One percent openness offers the greatest light filtering and blocking of UV rays, and a 10% openness maximizes your view, lets some sunlight in while blocking UV and glare. Your Gotcha Covered consultant will show you examples of each level so you can decide which percentage will best fit your needs.
