Exterior solar shades – Large
windows are great for bringing light into
commercial spaces, but the light also brings
higher air conditioning costs and exposure
to ultraviolet rays that can fade your interior.
Solar shades can block the sun’s heat and
UV rays when needed, while maintaining
full visibility to the outdoors.

shade going green
A hundred years ago, awnings were common on hotels,
office buildings and the grandest of houses for a very
good reason—they shaded patios and terraces for outdoor
comfort, and kept the building interior cool.
Today, rising energy costs have brought back a new
generation of shade products that feature technological
advancements in fabrics, electronics and engineering.
Not only do these products save on energy consumption
and protect you from exposure to harmful ultraviolet
(UV) rays, they look great and add value to your home
or business.
In fact, did you know that awnings and other shade products:
• block harmful UV rays that cause skin cancer by 94%
• reduce indoor temperatures by as much as 15 degrees
• cut utility bills by as much as 33%
• are the most efficient way to bring shaded comfort to decks and patios
Aristocrat® Awnings, Shades and Canopies combine American
and European fabrics and components to produce beautifully
crafted products truly worthy of their name – ARISTOCRAT.

The MOST EFFICIENT way to block the heat of the
sun is from the outside — BEFORE it has a chance
to heat the window glass!
Solar shades can add privacy and block the sun’s
heat while still providing visibility to the outside.
They pay for themselves year after year in comfort and
reduced air conditioning costs while protecting your
furnishings from harmful UV rays that may cause fading.
Save Energy!
These efficient, motorized exterior shades
truly protect your home from the sun.
• Exterior shades glide along stainless steel rods, cables or heavy duty
aluminum extruded tracks
• Control how much light enters your home by selecting from one of three fabric
types: acrylic exterior awning fabric, PVC-coated polyester or fiberglass screen in hundreds of colors and patterns
• Motorized options for joined units include shared operators which control
all joined shades with one push of a button, or separate operators to give
you flexibility to adjust each shade independently
• White, desert sand or bronze frames
