Screen shades are a popular window covering option that combines sheer style with excellent UV protection. Screen shades serve a very important purpose of blocking harmful UV rays from damaging your flooring, furniture, and other items inside your home. Depending on the openness level you choose, screen window shades allow you to maintain the view out your window while still blocking the sun. As your local Hunter Douglas dealer with showrooms in San Francisco and Marin County, we provide a full line of screen shades to our residential and commercial customers.

Openness Factor with Screen Shades
Offered with a multitude of options and an opacity range from very sheer to semi-sheer, the fabrics in the Designer Screen collection enhance your décor while allowing you to enjoy your surroundings. The openness level of screen shades affects the amount of light and privacy the shade provides. A 1% openness level, for example, provides is a more obscured view versus a 5% openness level which allows more light and a clearer view. The lower the percentage value, the tighter the weave. The openness value of your screen shade doesn’t affect its style. They all have a clean sleek look with a variety of fabric colors and fascia housing in bronze, silver, black, vanilla or white.
Motorized and Manual Lifting Systems for Screen Shades
For the ultimate in convenience, we offer the PowerRise 2.0 with Platinum Technology motorized system that allows customers to operate their screen shades with a touch of a button or through the innovative Platinum App for use with Apple mobile devices. Other lifting systems include the standard clutch system with a continuous cord loop. Pulling gently on the cord causes the clutch to rotate the metal roller tube, which raises or lowers the shade and holds it in place. For enhanced child and pet safety, cordless lifting systems that use the bottom bar or decorative pulls for operation are also available for screen shades. Motorized lifting systems are gaining in popularity for screen shades.
