Retractable Solar Screens

Protect your home from the sun without sacrificing your million-dollar view with our
motorized, retractable solar screens!
Our motorized solar screens block 90% of the sun’s UV rays, so you limit the sun’s damaging effects on your skin, furniture and floors. But unlike our aluminum rolling shutters, our solar screens let you take in that beautiful sunset view, while protecting your home!


They may be thin, but our solar screens are powerful, durable, and incredibly useful.

European Rolling Shutters Houzz

"Excellent products and service! Our bedrooms have a lot of windows and the sun exposure was generating so much heat it was unbearable. We already had window blinds, but they were no use. We had ERS install solar shades… they cooled the rooms 15-20 degrees. The difference was night and day…” – G W., San Jose, CA

Get Rewarded for Your Solar Screens

Retractable solar screens offer an immediate reward for smart homeowners.

The comfort of keeping out the sun’s heat in a simple and stylish way is worth real money to you. If you ever decide to sell your home, you’ll be glad to know that your exterior shading has actually increased the value of your property.

And even if you never sell your home, you’ll still reap the cost-savings benefits of a European Rolling Shutters set of solar screens.

A PAMA Energy Study also showed roller shades can reduce annual cooling energy costs up to 86% for homes in San Francisco.

The US Department of Energy also recommends solar shades as an energy-efficient window treatment (Source: Energy.gov).

By blocking heat from the outside, you’ll reduce your energy costs from day one with these solar screens,
something traditional window coverings don’t do well.
It’s an investment in your home that will pay off immediately.
