The "Greenhouse Effect"

The sun's energy is delivered in the form of three rays;
Visible rays, Ultra-Violet Rays and Infrared Rays. The adverse effect of these invisible rays is glare, fading and heat. These rays are damaging to carpets, draperies, furniture & paintings, are sometimes successfully controlled with the use of interior window treatments. However, these interior shading devices do not block the infrared rays, which enter through the rooms in the form of heat.

Infrared rays from the sun are transmitted into the house in the form of short-wave radiation which is capable of piercing through glass. After the rays touch any surface, such as interior floors, walls, ceiling or furniture, these rays are absorbed and converted into long-wave thermal radiation which is incapable of escaping back through the glass. The thermal radiation (heat) is thereby trapped in the room causing the indoor temperatures to rise.

The Greenhouse Effect.

The Solution and How it Works

When solar radiation reaches an unprotected clear window, a small part is absorbed by the glass, but the vast majority is transmitted directly to the interior. The solution is therefore the use of an exterior shading system which would prevent the sun's rays from touching the glass directly. In other words the object is to intercept the solar radiation by an exterior solar shade that is outside the glass.

The illustration shows that by the using San Diego Mobile Screen Service's Sun-Pro & Patio-Pro Solar Shade systems, heat and U.V. are intercepted and controlled, with the fabric blocking between 89% and 96% of the total radiation.


Windows and doors are one of the largest sources of heat gain in your house. Blocking the sun before it enters your home is the main advantage of any exterior shading system. San Diego Mobile Screen Service's line of vertical drop shade products, the Sun-Pro and the Patio-Pro, are a revolutionary means of reducing the effects of sun damage. The use of either thermal screen or the opaque acrylic awning fabric, provides a wide variety of benefits including the reduction of damage to carpets, furniture, drapes as well as increased privacy. Designed for exterior applications, whether installed over doors, windows or patio structures, the Sun-Pro and the Patio-Pro are a favorite of architects, designers and homeowners to maintain aesthetic beauty while retaining the integrity of the home's design.

Exterior sun shades are the most effective solution to excessive temperatures inside the home by stopping the heat and UV rays before they reach the glass. Drapes, interior blinds and window tinting do not accomplish this because the damaging rays have already entered the room and have been dissipated in the form of heat.

Shading the outside of your home with a Sun-Pro or Patio-Pro can reduce summer temperatures by as much as 20 degrees on a hot summer day and result in substantial energy cost savings.
