Product Details

Innovative Openings' Solar Screen shades control glare and heat entering into a room while allowing view through to the outside world. These shades feature a modern design and are perfect for upgrading dated blinds or adding subtle and sleek window treatments to newly built homes.

The solar screen fabric is specially woven to allow some light to come through the fabric. The openness percentage indicates the percentage of surface area on the fabric that that is open space between the woven strands. 1% openness lets the least amount of light and view through. 5% openness lets the most amount of light and view through. Similarly, lighter fabric colors reflect more light, giving a glowing appearance and allowing less view through the fabric. Darker colored fabrics absorb more light, allowing for clearer visibility through the fabric. Keep this in mind when selecting fabric types for each room.

Choose from beaded chain, cordless or battery motorized options for operating your shades. Motorized roller shades are also compatible with smart home automation systems, allowing you to control them with just a tap on your smartphone or through voice commands. Say goodbye to tangled cords and manual operation!

Installation is a breeze with the easy installation instructions. Simply mount the brackets and snap the shades into place. No need to hire a professional or spend hours figuring out complicated instructions.

Upgrade your window coverings with the Light Filtering Roller Shades and enjoy the perfect combination of style, privacy, and convenience. To order your custom roller shades, follow the measuring instructions and select the fabric, hardware and operating options that best fit your need. Please note, each window may have slightly different measurements, so measure each window separately to ensure a perfect fit. If you need help, please schedule a virtual consultation and our team will be happy to assist you with product and measurement questions.
