FAQ

Q: What are the benefits of solar screens?

A: Provides protection against sun rot and fading. Reduces glare, provides daytime privacy, while still providing full vision inside out. Lets in soft light, and breezes, with the window open, but keeps bugs out. The chart below shows a window with Brown SunTex installed. In midsummer as much as 230 BTUs can fall on each unprotected square foot of glass. With SunTex installed, up to 80% of the sun’s heat and glare is reflected, absorbed and dissipated before it strikes the window.
