Patio Shades

When it's time to enjoy the warm weather with family and friends, there's no better place to do so than on your patio. However, if there's no shade on your patio, that relaxation can be done under a scorching sun. To keep this from happening, canvas shades for patios are becoming more and more popular with consumers everywhere. Known for their durability, unique design options, and ability to greatly cool their surroundings in a matter of minutes, patio shades are one of the most popular trends in home design and decorating today. If this sounds like something you'd love to add to your patio, here are some additional benefits these shades offer.

Insect-free Zone

If you happen to live in an area where mosquitos or other insects are prevalent, patio shades can make all the difference when it comes to enjoying some quality time on your patio. By using zip tracks to hold the fabric in place, all unwanted insect guests can be kept out, leading to a very comfortable evening on your patio.

Wind Resistance

Along with insects being a patio pest from time to time, wind can also be an unwelcome visitor. Therefore, Rollac canvas shades for patios are designed to be wind resistant to speeds up to 80 miles per hour. Along with this, by using the unique zip track technology of Rollac, the patio shades can resist wind gusts no matter what position the shades are installed. And by covering up to 235 square feet, the shade's fabric can maintain the proper amount of tension needed to keep the fabric taught and free of wrinkles.

Installation Options

Since all patios are not the same, Rollac canvas shades for patios offer a variety of installation options. These include surface mount, jamb, and in-wall. While surface mount is the most common choice for pre-existing buildings, all three options can be used on numerous types of surfaces and buildings. Therefore, it's always a good idea to discuss your needs with a trained Rollac representative prior to making a final decision. For many customers, in-wall installation is popular, especially if they are building a new home or other structure. With this option, the shades have a very clean look, since they can have most of the installation hardware concealed inside the wall.

Colors and Fabric Patterns

When it comes to choosing colors and fabric patterns for Rollac canvas shades for patios, the sky is the limit. Whether you want a subtle color and fabric pattern, or instead decide to go for bold choices that reflect your personality, the choice is up to you.
