SunTex is a unique woven mesh that can block 80-90% of the sun’s hot rays before they enter your window. Perfect for outdoor blinds, exterior solar screens and sun shading applications, SunTex 80/90 fabrics can be used for your window screens, door screens, patio, motorized shade, patio shades, or canopy.


SunTex 80/90 screens are excellent for any of your DIY shading or screening projects. Whether it’s for your window screens, porch, privacy screen, or any other sun shading application, SunTex 80/90 can provide you with the style and durability needed for any project.

Exterior Shading and Energy Saving

SunTex exterior shading fabric is made of strong vinyl-coated polyester and is pet resistant. SunTex is mildew and fade resistant and needs only an occasional cleaning with mild soap and water. What you may not know about SunTex 80/90 is that it can help with energy savings by reducing the heating effect of the sun’s rays.

*TS - Solar Transmittance, RS - Solar Reflectance, AS - Solar Absorptance, TV - Visual Transmittance *SHGC = Solar Heat Gain Coefficient *1/4 CL = 1/4" Clear Glass, 1 HA = 1" Heat Absorbing Glass *Fabrics Installed Internally, Zero-Degree Profile Angle *Solar Heat Gain Coefficient (SHGC) shown calculated according to Office of Building Technology, State and Community Programs, Energy Efficiency and Renewable Energy, U.S. Department of Energy's definition of SHGC. SHGC represents the percentage of solar heat gain that is transmitted to the interior through the glass and shading system. If you are using glass whose performance is listed in terms of SC, you may convert to SHGC by multiplying the SC by 0.87.
