Outside / Surface Mount
Inside /Surface Mount

The application is more forgiving with measurements. The critical measurement on this is unit width noting that the fabric will be 1 3/8″ narrower than the overall unit width.

The shade will be recessed mounted and will fit into a predetermined space with framing on all sides. The top mounting width area is critical for this application


The total width of the unit from outside of end cap to end cap. The fabric will be typically 1 3/8″ narrower than the total unit width. This measurement is more critical and should be within 1/8″

The total height of the shade from the top of the mounting bracket to the bottom of the hem bar when fully extended.

For inside mounts: This measurement is taken from the very top of the opening to the bottom.

For outside/surface mounts: From the top to the bottom of the area you are looking to cover. Keep in mind that the top roller section will be 2″ to 4″ tall.


This measurement is taken from left to right at 2″ down from the top of the opening. Keep in mind the fabric width will be 1 3/8″ narrower than the unit.  If you will end up with side light gaps, we offer optional blackout/side tracks. PLEASE NOTE: We will take off 1/8″ from your measurement provided to insure fit.


measure the opening you are looking to cover and add a minimum of 2" to the width for complete fabric coverage

No Blackout Tracks (add $0.00)
Blackout Tracks (add $0.00)

Blackout/side tracks are typically used for inside mount applications when the side window frame is less than 1 1/2″ thick to avoid direct light leaking past the side edges of the fabric. The fabric will be typically 1 3/8″ narrower than the unit width you order.  The other popular use for these tracks are when an opaque fabric is selected and you are trying to block of light glowing from the sides of the fabric.
Open Roller (add $0.00)
Fascia (add $0.00)
Cassette (add $0.00) The fabric wrapped around the aluminum roller clutch is exposed (if manually operated, pull chain is exposed as well). Open Roller is ideal if the roller will be hidden behind an existing fascia, recessed mounted or if the look is desired. The fascia is a painted aluminum extrusion that snaps onto the end brackets to hide the fabric roller and provide a clean, finished look. The fascia cover the front and most of the bottom of the roller tube, the top remains open. For surface or outside mounts, we offer matching side covers to give the fascia a “wrap around” appearance. The cassette option replaces the straight front fascia width a full wrap around extrusion with only an opening for the fabric on the bottom. The front of the cassette is typically covered with a panel of matching fabric to the shade. This gives the appearance of a continuous look without light gaps around the roller tube section
Transparent Fabrics   These are the most popular fabrics we offer. They provide for both light and heat filtering while allowing you to see through them even with very tight weaves such as 5% or less openness.  

Blackout Fabrics:   Blackout fabrics are referred to as, "Privacy Fabrics" as they provide complete light blockage or illuminated glow with limited or no view to the interior or exterior of the room. The openness range of these fabrics extend from 0% to 1%. These fabrics provide the maximum light blockage available.

Light Filtering Fabrics:   These fabrics which often offer a design element to the fabric, will also filter the sun's light and heat, but because of the fabric design, these fabrics will diffuse or distort your view - not allowing you from the inside or others from the outside to see through them.

Retractable Window Shades
As the seasons change, so does the position of the sun in the sky. Also changing throughout the year are the sun’s “personalities” – from warming rays in the winter, to the unwanted heat and damaging UV rays in the summer.

Fortunately, products like retractable awnings, screens, and shades are great ways to optimize your control over the sun! Our retractable rolling shades are a great way to keep your home naturally light while minimizing the sun’s undesired effects such as heat gain and glare.

Retractable shading products take up very little space. They are easy to use when you need to, but are also easy to condense down to sizes that won’t affect your space when not in use. These solar shading fixtures, because of their custom nature, can be crafted to specifically fit the area or space you have to work with.
Options to Fit Your Budget
Because there is a certain amount of flexibility into these options, you can tailor your retractable window shade configuration to fit your budget. Different sizing, materials and options make it possible for the homeowner to tailor their retractable sun shades to their home.

Installation options, fabric choices and other options can make a big difference in the look, feel and affordability of your retractable window shades. We give you a way to customize your order so you can get the most for your money and create the cool, comfortable home you’ve always wanted while staying in budget.

Our retractable interior mounted roller shades and exterior mounted screens give you a huge variety of ways to stay more cool and comfortable. And depending on how they are installed, your sun shading products might even decrease your utility bills!
