Exterior shades for homestyle comfort

If you want to cover the outside of your windows in an elegant and practical way, we recommend our range of exterior shades. These shades are offered with two system types. A cable system that is perfect when you don’t need to completely close off the outdoor space. The ZIP system, which holds the fabric inside its side channels, creates a barrier with the outside. For optimum performance, the opening for the ZIP system should have a four-sided, rigid, flat and right-angle surround. With our exterior shades, it's easy to improve your exterior living space!
