-UV Screens-

UV roll-up screens, also sometimes called solar screens or sun screens, are a type of retractable window treatment designed to block ultraviolet (UV) rays from the sun. They are made from a woven mesh fabric or a special UV-blocking film that allows light to pass through while filtering out a significant portion of UV radiation.

Exceptional Talent
  • Used for:

    UV Protection

  • Time to deploy:

    It will take 1-5 min to protect each opening

  • Areas protected:

    Windows, Patios, Garages, and Lanai

Here are some key characteristics of UV roll-up screens:

  • Function: Their primary function is to block UV rays. This can help with:
    • Reducing heat gain inside your home, keeping it cooler during hot days.
    • Protecting furniture and other belongings from fading caused by UV exposure.
    • Offering some level of UV protection for people in shaded areas beneath the screen (though sunscreen is still recommended for direct sun exposure).
  • Material: They are typically made from a mesh fabric or a UV-resistant film. The mesh allows for some ventilation while still blocking UV rays. The tightness of the weave and the specific film used will affect the level of UV protection and visibility through the screen.
  • Retractable design: They operate on a rolling mechanism that allows you to easily roll the screen up and down as needed. This provides flexibility – you can enjoy the full view and sunlight when desired, and then roll the screen down for UV protection when needed.
  • Visibility: UV roll-up screens come in various levels of visibility. Some might be slightly tinted but still allow for a clear view, while others might offer more privacy screening with a bit less visibility.

Here are some additional benefits of UV roll-up screens:

  • Energy efficiency: By reducing heat gain inside your home, UV roll-up screens can help lower your air conditioning costs.
  • Glare reduction: They can help cut down on glare from sunlight, making it more comfortable to be in a room with bright windows.
  • Easy maintenance: They are generally easy to clean and maintain.

UV roll-up screens can be a good option for:

  • Homes with lots of windows that get direct sunlight
  • Sunrooms and patios
  • Conservatories and greenhouses (depending on the level of UV blockage needed for plants)

They are important to distinguish from other types of screens:

  • Hurricane screens: Designed to withstand strong winds and debris during hurricanes, not primarily for UV protection.
  • Bug screens: Focus on keeping out insects while allowing ventilation, and typically don’t offer significant UV protection.
