Custom Textilene® 80% Solar Screens

Our custom Textilene® 80% solar screens are factory made with Twitchell™ Textilene® 80 Solar Screen fabric. Twitchell™ is a world leader in solar screens.  The Twitchell™ Textilene® 80% solar screen mesh blocks approximately 80% of the suns radiant heat before it reaches the window in an outdoor application.  It can reduce your cooling portion of your electric bill up to 30%.  

Textilene® 80% Screen is typically used on the sides of the home that receives direct sunlight. We find that all color screen mesh works to shade from sunlight but the darker colors work best for outward visibility.  If your goal is to reduce heat in your house, you must screen the entire window.  

Here’s what one of our customers said about this solar screen; “Just a followup - the screens were perfect, the clips worked well. Thanks! We can already tell a difference in the coolness of our "hot side" of the house. Well worth the price and your service was excellent. Thanks!”

The Textilene® 80% screen mesh’s uniform weave design offers excellent outward visibility and good ventilation. The mesh allows natural light to come into your home and allows great outward visibility with some daytime privacy. People still might be able to see silhouettes.  It also provides enough light for your indoor house plants while providing enough UV protection to keep your drapes, blinds, furniture and flooring from fading. The fabric is also pet resistant.  Textilene® 80% screen fabric is woven from extremely strong and durable vinyl-coated polyester yarns.  The mesh was originally developed for outdoor furniture and is mildew and fade resistant and only needs an occasional cleaning with mild soap.  Textilene® has UV inhibitors to keep it from fading or rotting upward to 25 years in the direct sunlight with a manufacturer warranty of 10 years.

Textilene® 80 solar screen is available in a choice of six earth tone colors; black, brown, beige, dark bronze, grey and stucco.  There are five frame color choices and a wide selection of attachment hardware to meet most any needs.  For solar screens we recommend the heavy duty 5/16 x 1” or 7/16 x 1” window screen frame. These window screen frames are sturdier than your average window frame.  We also recommend cross bars for solar screens. This is a great screen choice for those looking for durable window screen.

It's to early to tell if the are going to keep the rooms any cooler but I really don't see how they will not. Before I installed them I placed one above my head in the hot sun and it felt as if I gone under a tent. I bought two and immediately bought three more for the front of my house because I like the way they look.

Advantages: Look great, well made. Fit perfect. I really like the security they provide. You can't see in the house. I would order more but I'm out of windows!!!!

Disadvantages: Freight for the long ones (70 inches ) was a little high and Fed bent the crossbar on all three. I bent it back(you cant see the crossbar when they are installed) I figured Fed would damage the next ones so I didn't report the damage. Very pleased.

I live in hot Central Florida and one side of my house gets pounded by the sun and is 4 - 5 degrees hotter than the rest of the house. These solar screens reduced the temperature by 3 - 4 degrees and allows you to comfortably be in that part of the house. I ordered the clips but reducing the width by 1/2 inch each side made the clips ineffective . Next time I will reduce the width by 1/4 or 1/8 inch. I ended up attaching the screens with industrial strength Velcro. Turns out this works great and the look is a lot cleaner than the clips.

Advantages: Cuts the glare and the heat. Screens look great and well made. Screens delivered within 4 days.

Disadvantages: Shipping is expensive . $130 to ship 3 screens is a bit much.

I was hesitant about the shipping fees but once they arrived it was justified. The screens were encased in a wooden frame and enclosed in heavy cardboard securely taped. They were perfect. Just popped 'em in and walla, they fit and looked great. The Textilene 80% is quite nice and the frame and material match our stucco and windows. They were a bit of an investment but I am hopeful they will hold up for some time and I didn't have to make them myself or worry about screwing it up.

Advantages: Greatly reduces glare and I would expect it should reduce heat from the southern exposure this summer.

Disadvantages: None

INSIDE APPLICATION: Lake of the Ozarks, MO. I ordered these screens for 8 transom windows above large picture windows and 3 arched windows above a door. The western exposure was killing my client. To put shades on the windows would have been $3,600 not including the arched windows above the door. Solar screens came and fit like a glove! Just set them up in the windows with a little invisible Velcro to hold them in and VOILA! Problem solved! White frames and white fabric matched the ivory Hunter Douglas Silhouette shades below perfectly. You can still see through the shades and comfortably sit in the living room without the blinding sun in your eyes. ALL 11 SHADES UNDER $500!!! Happy Client=Happy Designer!!

Advantages: Cost effective sun solution! Blends well with other window treatments in the room Can be removed in winter when you want the sun to warm the room. Stellar customer service. Quick ship. Thank you Amanda in Dallas was outstanding!

Disadvantages: Absolutely NONE! Wish I would have come across their website years ago!

We really like the solar screens we ordered. We have a loft room with 2 windows that face west and these really help block the sun/heat. I did not use the clips that came with and should have ordered the screens 1/2" smaller than window width instead of 1" but the window sticks in and holds just fine with a little opening on the sides. We never open the windows so not a big deal. We will probably order 4 more for the other windows. The tan color is great and they really do block the heat/sun!!

Advantages: Blocks heat/sun for sure! Look nice.

Disadvantages: Brick clips were not needed. Order width 1/2" smaller than window size and screen should fit right in place.

Very pleased with the product and customer service I received. Only thing which was not like the video was the clips. They do not clip on to the screen like the video but was still extremely easy to install. Highly recommend.
