Cooler Temperatures

Retractable solar screens in El Paso can make your indoor/outdoor spaces cooler by limiting the amount of direct sunlight (and heat) that reaches your windows or outdoor spaces. This can translate to reduced energy bills!

wind control - southwestern home products

Wind Control

Our solar screens provide excellent wind control as the fabric is fully captured in the vertical side rails, the bottom bar, and header box. This allows the screen to stay in place as the wind blows.
