Solar Screen Mesh Options – San Antonio, TX
The Shading Company’s wide range of mesh options help you make any space a more comfortable and attractive living environment. You can choose from mesh types that provide insect protection, solar heat control, natural ventilation, or increased privacy control.
And the technical bit? The mesh openness factor determines the amount of heat, light, and air that enters a room. A more open fabric allows the breeze and heat to enter the living space, while tighter meshes block more sunlight and keep the space cooler in the summer and warmer in the winter.
Ideal where insects are a problem, this mesh type reduces up to 55% of UV rays. Insect mesh also features a higher openness factor, which gives you more ventilation and visibility to the outside.
Mesh types in this category reduce heat and glare by up to 75% as well as keeping insects out. Solar mesh is perfect for keeping your home cooler and protecting your carpets, drapes and furniture from fading.
Available in multiple colors, this mesh type blocks up to 90% of UV rays. Thicker weaves provide extra solar protection and added privacy.
Motorized Retractable Screen Control Options
We’re very happy to partner with Somfy Systems to provide lots of screen automation and control options including remote controls and devices that respond to environmental conditions.
Don’t worry if these options are confusing – we will help you choose controls most applicable to your screening needs.
Solar Powered Motor
Forget the wires – a solar panel can be mounted on the screen’s housing which converts the sun’s energy into electrical power.
The harnessed electrical power is stored in a special Nickel Metal Hydride (Ni-MH) battery which powers your motorized screen.
The result? A maintenance-free and environmentally friendly alternative to keep your electrical bill down!
This wireless sun sensor is powered with an integrated solar cell to automatically lower a screen based on the sun’s intensity.
The wireless and compact design makes it an easy addition to any screen that creates a comfortable space for you to enjoy any time.
Motorized screens powered by Somfy seamlessly integrate with home automation systems so that you can control lighting, HVAC, AV, and security systems with one device.
Control your motorized screen(s) with Somfy’s TaHomA – a Total Home Automation system. TaHomA allows users to control, schedule, and monitor a variety of products, and efficiently optimizes the interaction of natural and artificial lighting, as well as heating and cooling, according to users’ personal preferences, which saves time, energy, and money.
Cable Solar Screens – San Antonio, TX
Made with the same parts and quality as the track mounted solar screen system, the primary difference is that cables are used along the sides instead of a side retention track system
Whether you are a minimalist, or looks really do matter, Rainier’s Cable Screen System is a great alternative to the track screen system.
There are situations where a side retention track system just doesn’t work, architecturally speaking. If your home has (for example) a big glass window wall, you’ll want a minimalist profile and it doesn’t get much more minimal than a thin stainless steel cable.
The cable guide system preserves your outdoor view, allowing you to better control your interior lighting. This screen system is best used in conditions where only light winds are the norm. Enjoy a cool breeze without worrying about the damaging rays of the sun!
