Solar screens are exterior, full length screens that cover the entire glass of your windows and doors. Solar screens reflect a portion of the sun's rays and absorb heat in the screens, then dispersing the heat back into the air away from the glass. The darker view from the outside offers increased privacy inside of your home, while the outward visibility is maintained from your view. Think of it in terms of sunglasses for your windows; a solar screen blocks the glare therefore the outward visibility is even better with a solar screen than without.
The benefit of solar screens range from protection from ultraviolet rays to energy cost savings. Solar screens protect your furniture and carpeting from fading due to sun exposure. During summer months and periods of extreme heat energy saving costs resulting from the installation of solar screens can be as great as 40%!
Solar screens come in many options. Frame colors, screening colors, and even frame design can be chosen to meet the look of your home or office. Let Bluebonnet Glass show you the many benefits of installing solar screens in our home or office today!
