Phifer's broad range of Exterior Sun Control fabrics provides excellent reduction in solar heat gain for a more comfortable environment and less work for your air conditioner.

Exterior Sun Control fabrics are flame retardant and meet certain flame certification standards based on national and local requirements. Check the flame certification standards requirements for your project to verify compliance.

GREENGUARD Certification ensures products have met some of the world’s most rigorous and comprehensive standards for low emissions of volatile organic compounds (VOCs) into indoor air. Phifer was the first manufacturer in the window treatment industry to achieve GREENGUARD certification for SheerWeave interior shading fabrics and has since had a wide range of fabrics GREEGUARD certified including Exterior Sun Control products. Certification is completely voluntary and ensures that the highest industry standards are being applied to maintain indoor air quality for the health and safety of building occupants.

Phifer Incorporated's entire line of Exterior Sun Control fabrics is lead free, meeting and far exceeding several window covering industry testing standards for hazardous materials. Exterior Sun Control products comply with RoHS/Directive 2002/95/EC, the US Consumer Product Safety Commission Section 101 and ANSI/WCMA A100.1-2007 for lead content. According to the Environmental Protection Agency, certain levels of exposure to lead, which can be found in everything from painted toys and furniture to soil around a home, can result in a variety of health effects. Even low levels of exposure can be harmful to children. The lead-free stamp marks another confirmation of Phifer's commitment to remain environmentally responsible.

Phifer sun control fabrics are the only shade fabrics in the world to include Microban protection. Microban antimicrobial protection works continuously to inhibit the growth of bacteria, mold and mildew that can cause stains, odors and product deterioration.

Printing unique colors, patterns, logos and graphics on exterior shading fabrics opens a whole new opportunity for product applications.

I did my research on solar screens, solar blinds and window tinting for a few weeks in search of the most energy efficient choice for my new home. It was very apparent that solar screens would be the most energy efficient choice. I had a few online quotes from companies in the area but was having a hard time having anyone come out. Then I found Southwest Solar Screens and sent an inquiry email. Nik responded in a timely fashion and was at my home in Cedar Park the next day. The quote was so affordable I couldn't believe it!! Needless to say I was thrilled!! Screens were installed on my house in 7 days and the results were immediate. No heat coming off the windows at all!! I can't wait to see my electric bill in a month. Nik and his assistant were polite and professional. The craftsmanship of the screens are great. If I am ever to purchase a new home in the Austin area I will be a repeat costumer for sure.

These guys are awesome! I have had them install solar screens on two houses and wouldn't consider using anyone else. They are prompt, professional, and do excellent work. I have also had them do some custom sliding door screens that worked out great! If you're in the Austin area, look no further that Southwest!
