Window Screens and Solar Screens
Solar Screens are a window screen mesh that is specially designed for sun control. It is the most effective way to control the sun’s heat and glare by stopping it before it ever penetrates your glass window. Much like a big shade tree, an exterior solar screen will help reduce your energy costs, increase your air conditioning efficiency, will help reduce glare and fading of home furnishings and floors. At Allstar Solar Screens we use Phifer Suntex fabric for all of our solar screens. The Phifer Suntex solar screen fabric is extremely durable, mildew and pet resistant. All materials come with a 10 year warranty and comes in a variety of colors.

Reduce Cooling Energy Costs
Solar screens installed on exposed windows can reduce the cooling portion of electric energy costs as much as 30-35% on a typical home in a warm climate. In many cases the ‘payback’ period can be as short as 1 year.
Protection from Fading and Glare
The UV rays blocked by solar screens can help protect your valuable home furnishings such as furniture, drapes, floors and paintings. Solar Screens are also reduce any glare spots you might see on your televisions or computers.
With solar screens on your windows, it is very hard, if not impossible for people to see into your home during the daylight hours. Much like dark sunglasses, even though people can’t see in, outward visibility can be excellent, especially with the darker colors available.
Type of Solar Screen
At Allstar Solar Screens we have solar screens that are available in either 70%, 80% or 90% heat rejection fabric. The higher the protection the less openness you will have. An 80% fabric for example is 80% woven closed and 20% open. This allows the fabric to reject heat while still allowing clear visibility to the outside. Allstar Solar Screens offers a variety of colors in material and in frames.
