Our most popularly used solar screen fabric options can be found in 5 and 10 percent openness. Based on the openness, they provide 95% and 90% sun protection.

Our fabrics come in two main styles: Natte and Satine. Natte offers a standard 2x2 basketweave pattern, while Satine offers a unique and decorative twill weave pattern.
