Outdoor Shades

We enjoy more than 300 sunny days a year here in Scottsdale, which means a lot of time is spent outdoors. Your time outside can be less enjoyable if it’s oppressively hot, but outdoor shades solve that problem. PSI Window Coverings carries premium quality Insolroll outdoors shades that help you to make the most of your outdoor living space.

Sunshades are not restricted to use only on patios and decks. You can use outdoor roller shades in many places, including:

  • Patio
  • Pool deck
  • Pergola
  • Balcony
  • Front porch
  • Gazebo
  • Sunroom or indoor pool
  • Sliding glass or patio door

Benefits of Patio Shades

The most prominent perk of having sun shades for your patio is the protection they provide from harmful UV rays and heat from the sun. The temperature under a shaded area can be up to 20 degrees cooler than the actual outdoor temperature. Sunshades also provide a buffer against windy days, so you can enjoy meals outside without holding down your tablecloth and napkins.

A shade screen for your patio can also reduce your cooling costs inside your home. When you stop the heat before it passes through your windows and glass doors, the interior of your home remains cooler. If you have a green thumb, outdoor roller shades can protect delicate plants from the harsh midday sun.

Adding a sun shade for your patio also enhances your home’s curb appeal and increases its value. Should you ever decide to sell, the additional square footage of usable outdoor space won’t go unnoticed by potential buyers.

Insolroll® Exterior Sunshades

Oasis® Patio Shade Systems by Insolroll have been raising the bar for outdoor shades since 1986. Since then, the brand has evolved to include several hardware systems to accommodate a wide variety of preferences and functionality. All Insolroll® patio shades feature premium high-performance solar fabric that reduces heat and glare while maintaining your view of nature. PVC-coated fiberglass or polyester mesh provide maximum protection with openness factors ranging from 3% to 48%. The openness factor determines your level of privacy and view through. A higher openness indicates more view through and less privacy, and vice versa.

Oasis® 2600 Patio Shades feature an exterior grade bead chain and clutch operating systems for durable, reliable operation for years to come. The Oasis® 2700 series can be equipped with a clutch and bead chain or motorized operation system. The Oasis® 2800 line is where it all began, and is available with a crank or motor operation and your choice of sidetracks or cable guide system to keep your sun shade in place in even the most adverse weather conditions.

Unlike patio shades purchased from a major retailer, Insolroll® shades are custom made to the exact specifications of your deck, patio, or other outdoor area. This means no pesky gaps or unsightly overlaps. You can also select the color and texture of your fabric to complement your home’s exterior and landscaping.

ABC Sun Control Systems

ABC Sun Control Systems offers outdoor sunshades for applications ranging in size from three feet to eighteen feet in width for individual panels. Some systems are able to be coupled for a wider capacity. The four available systems, President Motorized, President Manual, Universal, and Solette, come with your choice of screen. You can choose from several openness factors, opaque, or blackout to meet your light and sun control needs. Sidetracks, cable, or free hanging are options for fabric guidance on all systems, as well. Motorization is available featuring ultra-quiet, dependable Somfy® motors.
