Types of Solar Shades

Solar Shades are manufactured with a variety of openness factors. Openness refers to how tightly the fabric is woven together. A higher openness factor means that the fabric is woven looser. You will have a greater view to the outside, but it will not provide as much shade. A lower openness factor means that the fabric has a tighter weave, so it will provide more shade. However, it will also be more difficult to see through the fabric to the outside. 

Cleaning Your Fabric

To clean your solar shade fabric, remove dust regularly with a vacuum cleaner or compressed air.  You can also clean it with a sponge or soft brush and a solution of mild soap and water.  Then rinse with clean water and leave the solar shade down until it’s dry. 


Our solar shades have a lifetime warranty on the cassette, roller tube, drop bars, and tracks.  Cables, rods, mounting brackets and end caps are covered for twelve (12) years from the date of sale should they become unserviceable due to a manufacturing defect.  Fabrics from the Craft-Bilt fabric collection are covered for 12 years.
