CoolSun Skylight Shades are constructed from high quality shade material know as Suntex, and blocks up to 90% of heat and harmful UV rays. The shade material is manufactured by Phifer, a company that has been making a variety of screen products for indoor and outdoor applications since 1952 and is a leader in solar screen fabrics. The Suntex product is specifically designed to repel heat. This is the same material used for windows providing effective heat reduction. CoolSun Skylight Shades use a marine grade bungee cord sewn into the outside perimeter to insure a snug, secure fit around your skylight. CoolSun Skylight Shades are constructed from one piece of material to ensure a long lasting, durable product. The bungee system is fastened together with a stainless steel clip that will not rust or degrade and is a fixed length based on the submitted size of your skylight. There are no sewn perimeter materials that can tear during installation.
The Suntex material is infused with Microban, an antimicrobial protection used to inhibit growth of bacteria, mold and mildew that can cause stains, odors and product deterioration, for a longer lasting material and will not wash off or wear away for the lifetime of the scree/cover. The screen is extremely durable and is also used as a pet guard. Also, it is GREENGAURD certified.
