Solartex Solarshade

Solartex Solarshade - the radiant heat barrier for window insulation solution for Residential and Commercial buildings 
Solartex Solarshade is window insulation solution and a durable material made from a fine aluminium reflective foil laminate bonded onto a kraft paper, The foil paper laminate is then passed through a perforating machine creating 2mm diameter holes for allowing light to penetrate but not heat.   Solarshade stops radiant heat and controls internal climates by: 


  • Allowing light to penetrate (perforated surface area is 11% and reflective foil surface is 89%)
  • Stopping 85% of inward heat and NO Glare  
  • Not harboring mould
  • Reducing air-conditioning costs and overall internal energy costs.
  • Retaining external views from inside the home or office.
  • Improving daytime privacy from outside as it is impossible to see in.
  • Colour Finishes: available in aluminium foil on both faces. 
  • Some applications include glass, windows, greenhouses, atriums, skylights. Solarshade can be applied directly to the surface of the glass or can be fixed in a screen.
