Do Solar Screens Really Work?

July 11, 2022

If you are wondering, “Do solar screens really work?” you are not alone. Instant weight loss pills, anything from the “as seen on TV” store, or an anti-aging cream all seem amazing. There are things in life that seem too good to be true. Certainly, you’ve doubted if a new product could deliver on all its promises. You may feel a similar hesitation when it comes to solar screens. After all, a product that can block the sun, protect against insects, and create privacy nearly sounds too good to be true as well. So, do solar screens really work? The answer is a resounding YES, they really do work! SummerSpace® Solar Screens are effective and incredibly useful for enhancing your outdoor enjoyment. Keep reading to learn more about what makes our FlexShade® screens so special.

Bye-Bye Bugs with the Built-in Zip Retention Channel

Bug sprays and fly swatters can only offer a limited defense against bothersome insects that like to join the party. For an effective way to keep bugs at bay in your outdoor space, there are SummerSpace FlexShade screens. The Zip Traditional and Zip XL screens utilize a built-in Zip retention channel. This unique and intelligent design means when the solar screen is extended, it seals to the side of your structure, preventing insects from entering. Goodbye bugs, hello comfort. 

Solar Screens Reduce Heat Transfer

In addition to creating a bothersome glare, UV rays from the sun can make the temperatures soar in your outdoor space. As the heat index rises, being outside can become unbearable. Enter FlexShade screens. In fact, SummerSpace solar screens can block up to 90% of solar heat transmission and can lower energy costs by up to 60%.  Reduce heat gain, block unwanted solar glare, and keep your outdoor space comfortable all season long with SummerSpace.

SummerSpace Screens Have Proven Strength and Durability

SummerSpace FlexShade screens are high quality and extremely durable. But you don’t have to take our word for it. We put our screens to the test to prove it. The FlexShade solar screens have been wind tunnel tested up to 90 mph, exhibiting their strength and superior design. 

Solar Screens Custom Made for Your Space

A custom-made solar screen can provide custom effectiveness. Our Zip XL solar screens can be customized to fit your outdoor space up to 25-feet wide, while the Non-Zip screens can fit spaces up to 11-feet wide.

Additionally, you can choose the design and look of your screen system. Choose from six powder coat frame colors and a large selection of mesh screen colors, opacities, and design options.
