An unprotected skylight can generate intense heat and glare. Skylight FlexShades are the ideal remedy. Inconspicuously recessed into the skylight opening, a Skylight FlexShade provides solar and UV control to protect people and furnishings. The Shading Company recommends lighter color fabrics and hardware to absorb less heat. Venting space between shade and glass highly recommended. Choose motorized or crank skylight shades, both are a breeze to install and are engineered to be durable and reliable.
