Whether your concern is privacy while you relax on the porch or simply that the afternoon sun is so intense that relaxing on the porch is not an option, our porch blind may be your answer.
Porch Shades are designed for use on screened porches, sun parlors and open verandas. Porch shades are intended to protect your porch from the intense rays of the afternoon sun or from blowing rain and inclement weather. The porch shade provides privacy from the street traffic, as well as add a touch of tradition and elegance to your sun porch.
Interior roller shades that combine vinyl materials are rated for outdoor use on your deck or porch. If the sun is depriving you of the ability to enjoy your outdoor space, this product may be the answer. Shades can be built up 108″ wide and 108″ tall and can reduce the heat on deck surfaces by up to 15 degrees. Their sleek design allows the roller shade to roll up and contract into a small 4″ diameter preserving your view when not in use. Peachtree has developed a locking mechanism to secure these shades at the bottom to keep the shade from swinging wildly when the wind blows.
While it is not marketed as a product to eliminate water and rain, the double layers of screens do provide a significant reduction in water entering the living space. The unique locking mechanism is designed to keep the solar roller shade controlled in times of breeze or higher winds. It should be raised if a more sever storm is approaching.
Picture Example 05 demonstrates that while the roller shade is effective in blocking the sun and harmful UV rays, it still provides a generous view of the outside. Different fabrics can be selected to allow less or more view based on the customers needs. Picture Examples 06 & 07 provide an outside looking in view. Lighter colored shades like white reflect more of the sun’s rays and can provide ultimate privacy in the daytime.
