Why set up solar screens in Austin?

It goes unsaid that Austin gets a lot of sunshine. With so many sun solutions on the market, how do you know what’s best for your home? Consider these unbeatable perks of installing a shade screen:

Weather Resistance Sun Shade

The fabrics that comprise our screens resist Austin’s weather and the stresses of heat and cold. That means that no matter the time of year or the weather, your screens are ready to protect you from the elements. Enjoy the sound of falling rain or catch a storm rolling through Austin from the safety of your patio. Sip coffee in the sun or soak up a cold front. You can do it all with a Shading Texas solar screen.

The solar screens we offer are also high-tension to create a rigid shape that doesn’t bend with the wind. The fabric’s weave is made for maximum support and the fibers are all of the highest quality. The Mermet fiberglass screen far exceeds the durability of standard polyester. Also, take advantage of our powder-coated extruded aluminum that is ready to ward off even the most inclement weather.

Austin’s Best Sun Protection

All of our screens furnish your home and outdoor areas with sun protection that is simply unmatched. Our shades can go up to 30′ wide with no seams or breaks – wider than any other shading company in the Austin area. If you’re looking for shelter on a small scale or you want to go big, Shading Texas has options.

Outdoor Patio with Retractable Sun Shades


Our solar screens are great at keeping homes cool and save on energy costs, but they are capable of so much more. They can also cover your patio or deck to open up areas of your home that are too hot or too bright to use. Take in the Austin breeze during the heat of the day with screens that let in the perfect amount of light along with a pleasant wind. Don’t stay stuck inside – get your outdoor areas covered and start relaxing outside with the help of your Shading Texas sun shade.

These sun shades are also great for keeping businesses cool. Raise productivity and lower overhead costs by putting in some sun shades at your company. Artificial lighting in a typical building comprises up to 40 percent of the energy used. Turning those lights off and letting in the natural light reduces strain on the eyes and eliminates glare from reflective surfaces. Reduced bodily stress combined with more comfortable temperatures means more energy for your employees and less energy on your bills.

When Austin weather gets to be harsh, you can retract your solar screens to prolong their life. Motorization lets you decide when to take advantage of your protection and when to keep them secure.

Shading Texas also has home automation options and timers that can lower and raise the screen shades at different times. Optimize your screens for the best shade possible – when you want it.


Shading Texas boasts the most effective privacy solar screens in the Austin area. If you want to keep onlookers at bay, a retractable privacy wall may be just what you need. A privacy screen from Shading Texas renders its protected area completely invisible day or night, depending on the openness of the fabric. Take back your privacy and get the most out of your Austin home with a retractable privacy screen.
