Solar Screens Available With Grid - Cross Bar Grid Paned Window Screen

Solar Screen With Colonial Grid
Solar screens have great benefits, and save homeowners money on summer AC bills, especially in sunny Austin. For those that prefer the look of window panes or crossbar separations, solar screens are available with grid patterns. Window grid patterns commonly used in the Austin area include colonial, prairie and horizontal bar.

Solar screens can be crafted to emulate different styles of paned windows including arched window radiating panes.

The idea behind the grid pattern added to the solar screen is to preserve the original window panes. For instance with colonial windows (seen here) the solar screen can duplicate the cross bars so that the look and feel of the original window is preserved, overlaying the same bar structure over the window with the solar window screen.

Below is another view of the solar screen with a colonial grid pattern. This is the outside view of the solar screen.
Solar Screen With Cross Bars Creates Paned Window Esthetic
Solar screens with grids can be utilized to create the paned window esthetic whether your current windows are paned or not.

Here I set the solar screen on my rock wall and took a close up through the screen. The solar screen has the look of the traditional colonial paned window from within or without.

Solar Screen Custom Grid - On A Budget

The grid addition to the solar screen is a custom add-on and is crafted to your individual window. For the homeowner on a budget, we suggest grids on the street facing windows and a simple divider or blank screens for the side and backside of the home.

Solar Screens Austin Example Density Combinations

Solar screen installations combine solar screen densities

Special windows like the high arched windows pictured at right or the round window below it, are hard to drape, and look better open, yet may admit too much light causing overheating and glare.

Arched, round and other specialty windows admitting too much light, glare, and causing solar heating are a problem for many homes in Austin.

Combining solar screen densities doesn't affect esthetics

Install denser solar screens on specialty windows and  lower density solar screens on the viewing  windows.

Combining densities, even on windows sitting right next to each other is possible with solar screens. Solar screen combinations allows homeowners to filter light from specialty windows without sacrificing esthetics.
