Winter is a great time to install Verticool drop shades. Not only will they be ready in time for you to beat the summer heat, but you can also start enjoying your outdoor space now! The shades can block wind and other winter elements so you can get some fresh air when the house is too stuffy. SugarHouse offers two different types of drop shades: Verticool Exterior Drop Shades and Verticool Rope-Operated Drop Shades. Let’s take a closer look at each one of them.

Exterior Drop Shades

Privacy Screen 12Our exterior drop shades are available with either an electric motor or a manual that uses a crank that can be removed and stored. Guides on each side of the shade allow it to roll up and down properly and add stability. The guides can either be metal tracks or thin cables.

Here are some top features:

  • Wind sensor
  • Sun sensor
  • Home Automation Integration
  • 10-year limited warranty
  • Available in reliable and well-known fabrics such as Awntex and Textilene
  • Are infused with Microban® technology, an antimicrobial that inhibits the growth of stains and odor-causing bacteria
  • Offer excellent shading advantages without trapping heat or airflow
  • Our vinyl-coated, polyester-fiber mesh fabric stops 85%-95% of UV rays
  • A solution-dyed acrylic material, such as Sunbrella®, is also available. Because it blocks nearly 100% of the sun and visibility, this material is ideal for both shade and privacy.

Rope-Operated Drop Shades

Privacy Screen 17Rope-operated shades simply drop when the rope is released and raise by pulling on the rope. Cleats attached at the side and bottom of the screen secure the screen when it is extended or retracted. If you wish to install these drop shades yourself, they can be ordered as will-call/shipped items in standard or custom sizes.

  • Available in reliable and well-known fabrics such as Awntex and Textilene
  • Mesh-like, open-weave, vinyl-coated, polyester fiber material
  • Protected by 5-year limited warranty
  • Plenty of color options
  • Provides 70-97% sun protection while still see-through
  • Also available in Sunbrella fabrics, providing 100% protection but not see-through
  • Made to order in standard or custom sizes
  • Standard sizes – 48”-168” (4ft.-14ft.)
