Available Fabrics

Our two most commonly used fabric options are 5 and 10 percent openness. They offer 95% and 90% protection based on openness. We use mainly darker colors to absorb the heat and absorb excess light passing through the fabric. More absorption equals more protection and a clearer view through with less glare. Mermet fabrics come in two styles: Natte and Satine. Natte offers the conventional 2×2 basketweave pattern, while the Satine offers a decorative twill weave pattern.

Square Handheld Radio Remote

Our magnetic wall-mounted base provides you with a convenient place to store your remote.

Remotes are available as single-channel or 15-channel. Single-channel remotes operate on one screen or one group of screens. 15-channel remotes can operate up to 15 screens, each individually as well as simultaneously.

Hub Connector

The Hub Connector can be programmed to operate your Solution Screens.

The Hub Connector is perfect for the smart home as it integrates easily with your Echo or Google Home.

INCLUDED

The Connector Mobile App

We are proud to offer a free app for controlling your screens or shutters from your phone! The app allows you to create a different scene for how you like to use your solution screens, including a timing function for preprogrammed operation at set times.

LiTouch Safety Drive

The Solution Screen has become even more reliable through the use of the all new LiTouch Safety Drive. The LiTouch Safety Drive is added to Tucson Signature Series motors and allows the screens to travel down without concern for obstacles or resistance. This specialized system will wait if resistance is encountered and continue down when free.

Exterior shading systems are twice as effective when compared to interior heat insulation products.

Great local family owned DFW business. They took the time to show us amazing options and demonstrated onsite functionality that ultimately set them apart from the competition and earned our business. The shutters are beautiful and block out the western sun completely. We are so pleased we are going to have them install indoor shades to darken the bedrooms.
Bob P.
I would absolutely recommend Blinds Brothers. First of all, they are a locally owned family business that is great to support. They were professional, trustworthy, and got the job done. They do high-quality work and I’m extremely happy with the results.
