Our Solar Shade screens are made of a unique woven mesh that blocks 75% to 90% of the sun's rays before they enter your home. They also double as a screen for keeping insects out. However, the primary purpose of this fabric is to reduce the level of solar heat in the summer and save greater amounts of heat in the winter.

How many shutters or screens can I operate with one switch?
Special switches can operate up to two shutters. Somfy’s RTS or IGC technology could, virtually, operate an unlimited number of shutters with only a single switch! The technology could also be modified to control individual or groups of motors from multiple locations. This technology can be incorporated into most home automation and z-wave systems. 
When should I use a motor with gear override?
Motorized shutters and screens with gear override should be used in case of a power outage. They may also prove ideal for creating emergency exits.
