Is there a screen that protects from the harmful rays of the Sun?

Summer is most definitely upon us here in Florida, and so are some of the not so "fun in the sun" dangers of overexposure to the sun's harmful UV rays. Fortunately, for those of us who have discovered the benefits of retractable, motorized, and hideaway screens, we've learned how to beat the heat while enjoying the great outdoors…..and we're doing it in style!

While some sun exposure is beneficial to your health by providing a natural source of Vitamin D to the body (which aids in the absorption of calcium and phosphorus - essential for healthy bones), over exposure to the sun is nothing to rest on your laurels about.

Dangers of overexposure to the sun (or Excessive Sun Exposure) include:

Deterioration of the skin, including premature aging and loss of elasticity.
Rashes, itchiness, and dryness.
Damage to the eyes.
Skin cancer.

Thankfully, our screens cut the danger down by more than half! When not in use, your retractable screen disappears into its housing, offering an unobstructed view of the outdoors. You're in control with a retractable screen. You decide when you want it, simply sliding it where you want it to go and leaving it hidden from view when you choose.
