Our Premium Solar Panel Tracks are a contemporary alternative to vertical blinds and provide a versatile solution for covering sliding glass doors, patio doors and large window expanses. The solar shade fabrics are available in 1%, 4%, 5% & 10% openness so you have complete control in terms of light control, solar heat gain and the quality of the view out. If there are other windows in the same room that you’d like to coordinate in the same material, we offer Premium Solar Shades in 1%, 4%, 5% & 10% openness as well.

Solar Shade fabric is a great way to reduce solar heat gain, reduce solar glare, reduce UV erosion/exposure and diffuse incoming natural light for varying degrees of daytime illumination. A low openness factor (1% to 3%) provides great solar heat reduction but the view out is mediocre. A high openness factor (5% to 10%) provides a good to excellent view out but at the expense of the fabric's solar reflection and heat reduction capabilities. Dark colors reduce solar glare better than light colors and regardless of the fabric's openness, dark colors also provide a better view out.
Note: Solar Shades are not sold as privacy shades - as well as you can see out during the day neighbors or people passing by will be able to see in at night when the interior is lit up.
Note: All solar shade fabric is the same color on the street side as it is on the interior.
Cord Tension Pulley Cord traversed control used with the cord tensioner device supplied, eliminates the looping cord and ensures easy operation.
Baton (Wand) Draw A color coordinated baton is attached to what is called the lead panel. Via a special track the lead panel controls the opening and closing of the entire blind.
Split Draw You can choose to have all panels stack left, stack right or you can split the panels so that 1/2 stack on each side - this reduces mounting depth and allows for a more unobstructed view out.
Valance Options Sliding Panels do not come standard with a valance. However, you can upgrade to a 6" valance for a small surcharge. You can also customize the valance by adding scallops.
Scalloped Valance You can add scallops to the valance or hem - scallops are available in 6 different styles and come standard with gimp or decorative trimming.
