Get true One-Way-View Privacy. Clearly see out while keeping others from seeing in. Privacy for your porch, patio, balcony or sunroom area. PTI Sun Shade Solar Screen.

PTI  solar shade screen mesh (80% and 90%) is woven and formulated to provide high daytime privacy from outside viewing. And you, from the inside looking out, have a clear view to the outside.

How does it work? Privacy on your porch, patio, balcony or within your sunroom is acquired by the combination of ambient lighting differential and the solar screen's reflective coefficient.** This combination makes the screen appear as a "solid" during daytime hours to outside viewers (more lighted area). Simply put,: reflected light beams are more predominate than the dimmer beams making their way through the fine screen mesh pores. Obviously, a dense material is more reflective. However, the more dense the material, the less you can see from the inside out! PTI has answered that problem.

To have a clear and undistorted view of the outside, from behind a solar screen that gives high privacy (and still retains it's solar protection), it is essential for the screen mesh to be of high porosity and to be constructed and formulated to provide what could be called, "selective radiation defusing."  The porosity gives passage to the visual light spectrum while a chemical defusing of the high frequency energy protects from radiation that causes molecular breakdown and creates heat.

Maintaining these essentials while decreasing screen mesh density is accomplished by weaving very small diameter extrusion coated highly reflective round strands into a given area ("round" increases the surface area for solar ray defusing by a factor 1.57 to 1). This provides an equal number of open spaces (pores) of proportionate size. The visual light from the brighter area passing through a high porosity "open" area is predominate to the eye and the vision is clear. The heat generating ultra violet rays are deflected and defused by the extruded coating of inhibitors on the woven stands.

** Lighter colors, due to higher reflectivity, provide greatest privacy when lighting on both sides of the screen becomes nearly equal. It is also noteworthy to mention here that distance away from the screen decreases the ability to see through.

Clearer visibility with see through privacy on your porch, patio, balcony or sunroom is inherent with all PTI Shade Screen Materials.

PTI advanced solar screen materials
outperform all other solar materials on the market in the areas of protection, view and privacy. By incorporating complex formulas derived from NASA inspired and affiliated research laboratories, PTI solar screen materials meet and exceed the essential requirements for privacy and clear view. What was good for outer space has brought "down to earth" results. You can truly "keep the view" and have privacy too!

ProTectSolar Screen Tarps, Curtains and Barriers can provide privacy where you need it and when you need it without spoiling your view.
