5 Reasons to Get a Balcony Shade Screen

August 25, 2022

A balcony is an attractive and beneficial extension of your home. It’s a quaint spot where you can take in the sunset, enjoy a bite of lunch, or sip a cup of joe in the morning. Maximize the coziness, beauty, and use of your balcony with a sunshade screen! Here are five reasons to get a balcony shade screen right away!

Keepin’ It Cool on Your Balcony

The tranquility and relaxation found on your balcony can come to a screeching halt if the sun leaves you feeling H-O-T! A toasty heat index can quickly send you back inside and prevent you from enjoying your outdoor space. By installing a FlexShade® Shade Screen on your balcony, you can enjoy cooler temperatures and feel comfortable outside even on the hottest of days.

In addition to keeping your balcony cool, FlexShade screens can keep your home’s interior cool. By blocking UV rays from entering your balcony’s windows or doors, shade screens effectively prevent solar heat gain. This can result in significant energy savings and less wear and tear on your HVAC system.

The Perks of Privacy 

Since a balcony is an elevated section of your home, it can more easily catch the eye of neighbors or others nearby. Even if you have a privacy fence around your property, it often does not shield your second-floor balcony. However, our FlexShade screens can give you the privacy you desire on your balcony. Both the Zip and Non-Zip shade screens do an excellent job of inhibiting the inward view and providing a sense of seclusion. Customize your FlexShade screen with a variety of mesh colors, designs, and opacities to meet your privacy and view-through preferences.  

Shade Screens Give You Options 

Having FlexShade screens on your balcony gives you options for maximum enjoyment and use. When the sun is intense and bright, you can lower the outdoor shade screen to protect and cool. Then, when the weather is more comfortable, the sun has set, or you just want to take in more of a view, you can quickly retract the FlexShade screens into their headbox. 

Protect Yourself and Your Home with a Balcony Shade Screen

According to the American Cancer Society, the sun’s UV rays have a long list of negative effects on your body, including damage to skin cells, premature wrinkles, sunburn, inflamed corneas or cataracts, and even a weakened immune system. Limiting your exposure to the sun with a balcony shade screen, especially during the hottest parts of the day, can greatly reduce UV exposure. FlexShade shade screens are capable of blocking UV rays from entering your balcony by as much as 99%!

Additionally, having a balcony shade screen prevents UV rays from damaging your balcony and home interior. Prevent the sun from fading, warping, and causing other damage to your home with SummerSpace®
