Custom Pergola, Trellis and Deck Sun Shade Solar Screen Covers lower temperatures as much as 30 degrees.

The advanced solar radiation filtering with high air flow creates a natural cooling effect that gives "living in the shade" a whole new meaning!

Covered PergolaThese temperature dropping screen mesh covers are designed to fit perfectly to the overhead area of your pergola, trellis or deck structure. Shade covers are sized to exact specifications with grommets positioned to fit structure. 

Covers for a pergola or trellis are generally attached on top of the structure and held securely in place by means  of the grommets on the edges. Grommets are Trellis by Trellis Structures positioned to match your structure, The use of common fender washers and wood screws (or metal screws for aluminum frames) makes attachment a quick and simple process.

An attractive alternate method of mounting is hooks placed into the framework and then lacing rope through the grommets.

underside mount pergola shadeFor underside mounting or for easy removal and reattachment,  the use of the marine style twist lock grommets is often desired

When mounting the cover on the underside of a pergola or trellis, additional twist lock grommet rims are inserted in center portions of the screen tarp and aligned with the rafters. This keeps the screen from "drooping" in the center.

ProTectOverhead Sun Shade Solar Screens combine high air flow  with advanced technology UV inhibitors that neutralize high frequency solar energy. This creates less solar heat and a faster escape route for hot air to flow up and out. As hot air escapes, the cooler ground level air rises and creates a natural air conditioning effect. A pergola or trellis will easily become 20% cooler underneith.

Upward airflow is essential with overhead solar shade screen. Without it your pergola, trellis or deck becomes similar to standing under a canvas tent. We suggest two weave densities and percentages of UV protection: 60% and 80%. The 60% is available in black or white. The 80% is available in a variety of colors.(90% and above should never be used on a flat overhead structure due to density.)

All ProTectScreen Mesh Tarps:

Retain flexibility and shape year after year. UV protected for long life and fade prevention.

Will not mold or mildew. Will not become brittle with age and tear or puncture.

Virtually indestructible. Impervious to hail stones, golf balls, wind blown debris. Up to 200 lb ball burst strength.

PolyCB2Screen Mesh Covers are made to the exact specification of your pergola, trellis or overhead deck structure. A solar screen pergola cover will provide 80% more shade than standard pergola construction does. When a trellis becomes a walkway or just a place to sit in the shade, a solar sun shade cover will add coolness beyond belief.
