Retractable Solar Sunscreens


Exterior Retractable Sunscreens and Retractable Solar Screens are the most effective solution to reduce the temperature inside any room by stopping the heat and UV rays before they reach the glass. Drapes, interior blinds and window tinting do not prevent this because the suns damaging rays have already hit the glass, entered the room and have been converted to heat. Windows and glass doors are the biggest source of heat generation in your home. Blocking the sun before it hits the glass is the main objective of any exterior shading system. Shading the outside of your home with a Retractable Sunscreen or Retractable Solar Screen can reduce the temperature by as much as 25 degrees on a hot summer day and as a result will save you money on your energy cost savings. Our Retractable Sunscreens and Retractable Solar Shades are available in custom widths from 3’ to 26’ wide and custom heights from 2’ to 16’ high. We also have 3 standard powder-coated hardware colors, white, cream or brown for you to choose from and have 25 custom hardware colors available to suit even the most discerning pallets’. Using fabrics that block 80% to 100% of the sun’s rays, we have many fabric choices sure to suit your life style.

GORE® TENARA® Sewing Thread

Unaffected by Sunlight

Your Awning Fabrics are only as good as the thread we use to sew them. All our Sunbrella Awning Fabrics are sewn with GORE® TENARA® Sewing Thread that’s three times more durable than the industry standard, bonded polyester. Bonded Polyester loses 60% of its original breaking strength within the first three years yet, our thread still has 100% of it’s original breaking strength after 10 years. Now you can be rest assured that your awning seams will last as long as your fabric. GORE® TENARA® Sewing Thread maintains its strength even after regular exposure to UV sunlight. UV resistance is built into the thread, and is not a coating or additive that can wear off.


GORE® TENARA® Sewing Thread remains flexible and strong in extremes of hot and cold. It won’t absorb water and it resists acid rain, salt water, pollution, snow and freezing.

Using GORE® TENARA® Sewing Thread tells our customers that they are buying a premium product built to last with durable seams and a brand that’s backed by more than 25 years of experience from the company that invented it.
