E-Z Install Skylight Shades

Fixed Panel Shade – No Installation Tools Required
E-Z Skylight Shade is a fixed solar shade panel that fits inside the skylight opening using spring tension rods at each end to secure it. Custom manufactured to your exact specifications, these shades can be made using transparent woven or light blocking fabrics. Kirsh Spring Tension Rods are hidden in permanently welded pockets at the top and bottom and lock the panel into position. A third filler flap pocket closes up any extra gaps in the height. There will be a gap of about 1/4″ on each side of the fabric panel. Larger units may require an intermediate pocket for additional support.

Maximum Dimensions: 48″w x 72″h

E-Z Install Skylight Shade Description

NOTE: The surfaces that the tension rods will be pushing against must be parallel to each other for the rods to stay up. No drilling, brackets or special installation tools are required to install this simple, low cost solution to control heat, glare and fading. The panels do not retract. Skylights require at least 2” of space between finished shade and glass to avoid thermal heat buildup.

This system uses the Phifer SheerWave 4000 Series.  SheerWeave 4000, 4100 and 4400 are the only sun control fabrics that use DOW’s unique ECOLIBRIUM Bio-Based Plasticizer. ECOLIBRIUM is an eco-friendly solution that lowers greenhouse gas emissions.

These solar shade materials are woven from heavy duty, color fast, non shrinking yarns. They are available in 3%, 5% or 10% openness factors depending upon the light reducing requirements. We recommend 10% openness to retain the open feeling of a skylight. Colors closest to white reject heat the best. Light blocking materials from our blackout collection are also a popular option.
