Screens with Sun Protection
While there’s nothing like coming indoors to a cool home on a hot day, there’s also nothing quite like the feeling of dread you get when opening your monthly energy bills and seeing the cost of cooling your home.
Whether you live in a warm, sunny climate year-round or live in an area blessed with hot summers (and warm spring and fall months, too), many homeowners are challenged with heat gain and sun exposure through windows in their home. This can cause higher utility costs when trying to keep a home cool and can cause certain spaces to be uncomfortable.
This is where Phifer sun control screening can help, making it a far more economical and sensible choice compared to conventional screening:
These savings don’t just apply to folks who live in an area with warmer temperatures. Phifer also offers products that yield substantial energy savings, no matter what the season. Our SunScreen® reduces solar heat gain in the summer, helping keep your home comfortable.
Sun Protection Screening: for Indoor and Outdoor Use
Beyond savings on energy costs, not only is Phifer solar protection screen ideal for use in windows, doors and patio and porch enclosures, but our sun control products are also great for use in retractable exterior shades and systems. Our sun protection screening products provide a barrier against most pesky insects making their way into your home, as well as offer an added layer of protection from the sun’s rays overheating your home, or fading your curtains, rugs, and furniture.
Phifer sun protection screening offers added benefits, including protection from glare and harmful UV rays. Sun protection screens also guard against the fading of rugs and home and porch furniture, keeping your furnishings looking fresh and beautiful longer.
For rooms in your home with westward facing windows, sun control screening not only protects you from glare inside your home from the peak hours of noon until sundown but also prevents solar rays from substantially increasing temperatures in that room.
Phifer’s SunTex® 80/90 screen blocks 80 to 90 percent of the sun’s heat and glare, while our SunTex® 95 and Super Solar Screening + offer greater UV protection and protect furniture from fading.
Not only is Phifer solar protection screen ideal for windows, doors and patio and porch enclosures, our sun control products are also great for use in retractable exterior shades and systems.
Phifer's Innovative Screen for Sun Protection
Phifer products are made in the USA -- and have been for more than 60 years. We have a long history of excellence and innovation when it comes to screening. We understand that different people and different homes have different needs. Our sun control screen is engineered with this in mind.
Our sun protection screening is made from tightly-woven fabrics that block solar rays from breaking through. Our screens are designed to absorb and dissipate 80 to 95 percent of the sun’s heat and glare before it even reaches the glass on the doors and windows of your home. This prevents heat gain and temperatures rising to uncomfortable levels -- and making your air conditioning units work harder!
In addition to savings on energy costs, most Phifer solar screening products are infused with Microban®, making them resistant to mildew, stains and odors. Durable and able to withstand the excited paws of pets, Phifer sun protection screening offers excellent daytime privacy in addition to sun control and is GREENGUARD® Gold Certified, offering better in-home air quality.
