Graber Solar Shades




Solar shades are the perfect solution for maintaining light and your view of the outside while protecting your home from damaging UV rays and reducing heat transmittance. Available in a range of materials from classic to contemporary, Graber’s Solar Shades offer protection and style for your home. Please note: Solar shades do not offer nighttime privacy and need to be layered with a second treatment where privacy is desired.

  • Select fabrics are GreenGuard Certified to be low-chemical and particle emitting fabrics, which provides a healthier indoor air quality.
  • Many fabrics are Antimicrobial and Fire Retardant rated. For further information, please contact customer service at 1-888-767-7856.
  • Select fabrics can be turned 90 degrees clockwise (“Railroading”) to accommodate wider windows. Fabrics may curl along the edges when railroaded. This is not a defect in the product.
  • The amount of UV ray blockage is the inverse of a fabric’s openness factor (i.e., a fabric with 10 Percent openness blocks 90 Percent of UV rays).
  • Upgrade to Cordless or Motorized Lift for a sleek look and improved child and pet safety.
