Interior Solar Screen

Interior solar screens are most commonly roller shades and these can be purchased as custom shop fabrications or by dimensional specification off the internet.

Performance of various solar screen fabrics is a combination of openness factor and color. To learn more about this relationship, try this “View-Through Simulation Tool.”

There are currently no consistent thermal performance standards for solar screens. This website lists manufacturers offering a 10-year or more warranty on their products.

NOTE: All corded window covering products sold or manufactured in the US must comply with the new ANSI/WCMA Standard, A100.1-2012 “American National Standard for Safety of Corded Window Covering Products.” Be sure to only purchase products that are labeled as complying with this standard.

If you have existing corded products that do not comply, free retrofit device kits are available through the Window Covering Safety Council.
