What are clear vinyl shades?

Our clear vinyl shades allow the warmth of the sun to fully penetrate an interior space while creating a barrier against the elements. This makes them the perfect choice to insulate your outdoor space and extend your living area through the seasons. They are great either for residential or commercial use. Combined with safe, outdoor heaters, these shades make otherwise too chilly areas warm and cozy.

Heavy-Duty Construction Clear vinyl shades allow you to enjoy your patio, porch, gazebo, pergola or lanai, in the cold weather, or when it is just plain unpleasant outdoors. The virtually see-through material allows undistorted visibility, maintaining a comfortable outdoor feeling. It also provides a protected area for plants. Our vinyl is double polished with a glossy finish which prevents it from sticking to itself in the humidity. Stain and moisture resistant, it has passed the rigorous 200 hour UV and Weather Test for temperature, snow, and rain. In fact, our heavy duty clear vinyl shades can withstand temperatures down to 0°F without cracking.

Shades can be raised and lowered by a crank or they can be motor controlled with the touch of a button. Optional timers and sun/wind sensors are also available to automatically raise and lower your shades. Every shade is custom manufactured to exacting standards with a variety of options that are designed fit to your needs.

North Solar Screen clear vinyl shades are constructed with superior components designed to last outdoors. They will not rust, corrode, or mold. Shades are mounted on heavy walled rollers to prevent sagging. The material is secured to the roller with a spline and sealed on the ends to prevent sliding. Sonic welding for larger dimensions ensures that shade seams will not come apart. To protect against the wind, at the bottom, a heavy duty chrome plated stainless steel weight bar rides up and down on a sturdy cable system. Side rails with extruded aluminum housing in 6 matching colors are also available. Every part of these shades has been engineered to exceed your needs for outdoor use.
