SunTex is a unique woven mesh that can block 80 - 90% of the sun's hot rays before they enter your windows.  Ideal for use as a shading fabric on windows, doors, and porches.  SunTex is also pet resistant.

SunTex Exterior Shading fabric is made of strong vinyl-coated polyester.  Developed originally for use in outdoor furniture, SunTex is mildew and fade resistant and needs only an occasional cleaning with mild soap and water.

This is the most often requested fabric by customers of Shade Screens by JaysonSuntex offers the most energy savings.  The SunTex shade fabric is available in your color choice of Black, Brown, or Stucco.

Additional Benefits:

  • Extremely durable....also pet resistant
  • Excellent outward visibility

  • Reduce heat loss in the winter
  • Good ventilation
  • Protects against fading and sun rot
  • Provides daytime privacy

                                                                            The Solar Optical Properties are used 
                                                                            to calculate the shading coefficient. 
 
                                                                            The Shading Coefficient represents the 
                                                                            percentage of solar heat gain that is transmitted 
                                                                            to the interior through the glass and shading system. 
 
                                                                            Darker colors provide maximum glare 
                                                                            reduction and visibility.
