Protect Your Austin Home From Insects With Solar Screens

Spring and summer in Austin, Texas are some of the best seasons to enjoy the outdoors. However, with the warm temperatures and increased humidity, comes an influx of insects, including mosquitoes, flies, wasps, and ants. These pests can quickly turn your outdoor living spaces into unpleasant environments. Fortunately, solar screens for patios and other outdoor areas are an effective solution for protecting these areas as well as the interior of the home from insects. In this post from the Texas Rolling Shutters & Screens blog, we’ll discuss how outdoor areas can be insect-free and more enjoyable with solar screens in Austin, TX, and the surrounding areas. 

What are Solar Screens?

Solar screens from Texas Rolling Shutters & Screens are exterior screens made of durable Mermet mesh fabric designed to block a significant amount of the sun's rays while still allowing for ventilation and more evenly distributed natural light. They are commonly used in hot and sunny regions like Austin to reduce heat, glare, and UV rays that can damage furniture and cause discomfort indoors and outside. Solar screens also offer additional benefits such as insect protection, increased privacy, and improved energy efficiency by reducing the amount of solar heat that enters the home. 

How Can Solar Screens Reduce the Presence of Insects?

Solar screens are an effective barrier against insects. They provide a physical barrier that prevents insects from entering outdoor living spaces. As a result, homeowners can enjoy their patios, decks, or other outdoor living spaces without having to worry about insect bites or stings from flying pests like mosquitoes and wasps.

When it comes to insect protection, solar screens from Texas Rolling Shutters & Screens have a special feature that prevents insects from entering outdoor areas not found in competitor solar screens. Learn more about the innovative Tucson Adjustable Bottom Bar below. 

What Is the Tucson Adjustable Bottom Bar? 

The Tucson Adjustable Bottom Bar was initially developed to adapt our solar screens for patios located on slopes.

However, it also offers an extra level of insect protection that other solar screens do not provide. The bottom bar on our solar screens creates a complete seal from the starting point of the screen to the ground, effectively closing off outdoor areas. In contrast, other solar screens typically feature a seam made from the same material as the screen itself, which doesn't prevent ground-dwelling insects from entering. This means that our solar screens provide an additional layer of insect protection for homes and businesses not found on competitor products.
