Motorized Screens

Weather Protection

One of the great attributes of a motorized screen is that it can be manufactured or configured for a wide variety of uses and needs of consumers.

One of the most requested uses and needs is weather protection. Whether it is to provide shading to block the sun’s heat and glare or provide wind, rain and winter elements protection to keep your outdoor living area dry and protected, SunPro Motorized Awnings & Screens has the perfect solution for the job. A side benefit of any of these solutions, when used in conjunction with our sidetrack system, is they all provide superior insect protection.

​Energy Savings

Phifer’s broad range of SheerWeave® fabrics provides excellent reduction in solar heat gain for a more comfortable environment and less work for your air conditioner. Allowing diffused natural light in, SheerWeave may also reduce the need for additional interior lighting for added savings.

The Safe Use designation provides assurance that our products are compliant with some of the most stringent standards for chemical content in the world, including RoHS, REACH, ANSI/WCMA A 100.1 -2007 and US Consumer Product Safety Commission Section 101 for lead content. According to the Environmental Protection Agency, certain levels of exposure to lead, a toxin that can be found in everything from painted toys and furniture to window blinds, can result in a variety of health effects. Even low levels of exposure can be harmful to children. The safe-use stamp marks another confirmation of Phifer’s commitment to remain environmentally responsible.

Phifer sun shading fabrics have been independently tested for their effectiveness in preventing sun damage to the skin and eyes as required by MIF standards.
