Sun Screen Shading devices

Sun screen shading devices are used if you are looking for a system that offers you shading from brilliant sunlight or glare reduction.

Our customers have different reasons for wanting to restrict or manage the amount of sunlight entering a building. In southern, sunny states, excess solar gain may result in very high cooling costs. Well-designed sun screen shading devices can substantially reduce building peak heat gain and cooling requirements and enhance the natural lighting and the holistic quality of building interiors. Depending on the orientation and location of the fenestration system, a well-designed shading device may reduce yearly cooling energy costs from 5% to 15%.

In northern, cold states, sun entering south-facing windows can be a very positive contribution to passive solar heating. But in all climates, proper control and well diffused natural lighting will reduce the glare, improve the building environment and enhance the visual comfort for all occupants.

Our solar screen systems are similar to the function of a standard rolling window screen.

However, the weave of the solar screen is a bit heavy and denser. Available in 20%- 5% openness the solar screens are applied to the exterior of your doors and windows for optimal shading and efficiency. Of course, you could opt for screening or curtain systems from the interior to block the sunlight but, as Bob Vila states, once the sun’s energy has entered the structure, it will continuously warm up the interior. That is why our exterior applied shading devices are ideal solutions for environmentally conscious homeowners who want to control the intense heat, glare and contrast from the sun light that can enter their home.

Also perfect for homes on a lake or beach, sun screens by Hawkeye can eliminate the painful glare that often accompanies the brilliant morning sun reflecting off calm waters. As the morning sun moves across the sky, your screens can then be rolled up completely out of the way, so you can enjoy an unhindered and breathtaking view.

If you want to control that morning glare or add a sun screen shading device to your home, call Hawkeye Windows and Doors today!
