The Importance of Solar Shading & the Eclipse Experience

When a warmer than usual spring is predicted, that means you’ll be spending more time outside as the sun becomes stronger. It’s hard to believe with the temperatures we’ve had so far, but that is what the national weather is reporting. So be ready with solar shading from Eclipse Shading Systems®. Expanding your outdoor living space on the front porch or the back deck with retractable awnings will provide relief from the heat of the sun as well as protection from the sun’s dangerous cancer causing UV rays. With so much to select from in awning fabrics, you want to pick one that has an ultraviolet protective factor (UPF) of 50 or higher. That’s why we use Sunbrella awnings fabric from Glen Raven for many of our retractable awnings. Sunbrella fabrics will block up to 97% of ultraviolet rays of the sun, keeping your skin protected.

solar shading from EclipseYour deck or patio will absorb the heat of the sun and its rays will also be absorbed, passing through windows, walls, and doors unless you have adequate solar protection. Eclipse custom-made retractable awnings have the perfect combination of the most effective shading fabric, durable frame-work, and innovative advanced technology – both in our exclusive Advanced Belt Technology and the use of somfy motors and electronics. Add style and function to your home. Along with your new shaded summer living space, awnings will keep temperatures down indoors and help you save on energy costs, protect your family from harmful UV rays, and prevent fading of indoor carpet and upholstering. Eclipse shading systems are the best retractable awnings you can buy.
