Relaxing outside on your patio is always a pleasant way to spend time with family and friends, but all New Jersey homeowners know that the beating sun can occasionally hamper a good time. Multiple products and structures block the sun's rays effectively, but most of these solutions address light coming from above — so what about the low-angle light in the morning and evening?
Horizontal sun shades are a creative way to block distracting rays as the sun rises and sets. These structures are similar to traditional awnings, but they pull out from the side rather than overhead. New Jersey homeowners can trust Liberty Door and Awning for affordable rates and fast installation for retractable horizontal shades.
What Are Retractable Horizontal Sun Shades?
Retractable horizontal sun shades are innovative structures that allow homeowners to protect their outdoor living spaces. Most commonly found on patios, decks and porches, horizontal shades consist of two wall or floor-mounted posts, one of which holds a roll of durable fabric. When the sun rises in the morning or sets in the evening, homeowners can pull the fabric out of one mount and attach it to the other, creating a temporary light-blocking barrier that ranges from three to 13 feet tall.
Horizontal sun shades are available in multiple post styles and numerous fabric varieties, from opaque colors to loosely woven screens. These shades are easy to install and even easier to use, often featuring a handle on the side of the fabric and a caster along the bottom for a smooth glide.
Benefits of Installing Horizontal Retractable Shades
Homeowners looking for an efficient way to block out angular sunlight in the morning and evening will find relief in horizontal sun shades. Install a retractable shade on your property to benefit from:
- Targeted sunlight protection: The best solution to any problem address the issue as precisely as possible. Overhead awnings are excellent for midday use, but horizontal shades effectively fulfill the need for low-angle sunlight protection.
- Improved privacy: Horizontal shades shield homeowners from distracting glares, and they also serve as barriers between you and your neighbors. With your horizontal shade engaged, you'll enjoy greater privacy any time of day.
- Tailored designs: Retractable horizontal shades offer the perfect combination of style and utility. Every model comes with multiple options for frame and fabric color as well as materials and opacity. You can find sun shades to complement any home style.
- Seamless operation: Engaging a horizontal shade is fast and easy. Simply pull the fabric by the handle and hook it to the vacant post. The sun changes positions quickly, but you'll be able to manually activate your shade the moment you need it.
