The Blindsgalore Solar Screen Collection is the perfect way to reduce sunlight glare and damaging UV rays while still preserving a clear view to the outside.  The 3% Openness Solar Screen is composed of polyester yarns and PVC-coated fiberglass that work to reduce glare while still allowing you to capture nature’s beauty.  Customize your solar screen with a variety of mount, roll style, lift, bar and valence return options.

Note: To operate properly, the solar screen delivered to your door will be up to 1½" narrower than the actual ordered with, as light on both sides of the screen is essential to the design of roller shades.  If you do not wish to have any light seepage on the sides of the shade, consider ordering the solar screen as an outside mount.  See our measure and order guide for more information.

step 2

Select a mount option:

What are my mount options?
Inside

Inside

Inside mount blinds will fit within the window casing for a clean, custom look.  Enter the actual size of your window casing, NOT the size of your old blind.  We will make the necessary deductions to make the blind fit properly.  Make sure your window meets the minimum inside mount specifications, or flush mount specifications if desired.

Outside mount blinds will be installed on the wall above the window, covering the window entirely.  Enter the size you want the finished product to be, including the desired overlap.  The ordered height will include the hardware for blinds and shades.  This option is required if your window is not deep enough to install the blind as an inside mount.

step 4

Select a lift option:

What are my lift options?
Continuous Cord

Continuous Cord

A continuous cord loop and clutch assembly that provides the mechanical advantage needed to raise large shades.  Cord loop remains the same length, regardless of shade position.

Roller provides convenient spring action to retract and lower shade.

Note: shades with a spring roller will be made with the fabric up to 1" narrower than the width ordered, creating a 1/2" light gap on each side.  For best light control, select an outside mount and/or standard roll (instead of reverse roll).

step 5

Select a roll style option:

What are my roll style options?
Standard Roll

Standard Roll

Fabric rolls off the front of the shade, hiding the fabric roll.  The fabric on a standard roll shade comes off the back of the roll, which exposes both the roll and the back of the fabric.  Reverse roll shades may offer less light control because the fabric hangs further from the window glass.

Fabric rolls off the back of the shade, allowing the fabric to hang closer to the window for optimal light control.  The back of the fabric will be visible on the roll.

step 6

Select a bar option:

What are my bar options?
No bar

No bar

Optional colored hem bar adds a finishing touch and is available in the same colors as the large cassette valances for a coordinated look when ordered together.  Please Note: If you chose not to upgrade to a colored hem bar you will receive a standard solar shade wrapped weight bottom bar.

step 7

Select a valance option:

What are my valance options?
No valance

No valance

This optional valance is a curved sleek, aluminum-extruded, valance available with all lifting mechanisms.  The cassette valance is just under 3 1/2" tall and 3 3/4" deep.  Available in different colors.

"Excellent service"

on November 10, 2013

Quick shipment, excellent product.  The only complain I have is that 3% allows in too much Texas sun.  So I will go 0% next time.

"Very Happy"

by Manders77 from Lansing, MI on October 20, 2013

We ordered this for our kitchen.  We have a large three pane window, and a great view but it would get bright during the day.  We did not want to put traditional blinds or drapes in.  This was the perfect match.  It allows me to still see the view, but use my laptop.  The screen itself is very sleek and attractive looking.  We ordered Silver with the matching cassette.  Delivery and customer service were great.  The only thing I can say is a slight detraction is that I wish that they had a slightly darker grey color as an option, in between the Silver and the Charcoal.  Looks great, though.  The price was a good value.  Very happy!

"Exactly what I needed."

by Blinds fan from Illinois on August 25, 2013

I wanted to get rid of the blinds in the kitchen.  These are perfect for my kitchen.  Blocks the west and south sun but still lets light in.  Easier to care for than blinds.
