Up Shade System Overview go
to prior page
Up Shade System is designed to block bright sunlight glare, eliminate
damage being caused by ultra violet rays and stop the heat generated by solar
radiation. The system is comprised of a high technology solar shade screen that
is held securely in place without hardware fixtures.
system is primarily designed for home and office windows, doors and
skylights. It is particularly
valuable when trying to shade arch windows and any non-rectangular shaped
window. However, it is also very popular among RV and boat owners.
PolyCB2 MX-90 is a special fine weave solar screen mesh that will
not obstruct your outward view. This screen mesh is cut to the shape
and size you request when ordering. The resulting panel of screen is then
prepared for mounting by embedding suction cups (or attaching re-closeable interlocking pads for special

rays are able to pass through the mesh producing a comfortable
"soft" light permeating an interior area and allowing an
unobstructed outward view. An added advantage is the privacy it provides from
the outside looking in.

suction cups are embedded, appropriately spaced, around the edges to enable
mounting directly to the glass surface. This eliminates the need for fixtures,
hooks or other mounting apparatus. The suction cups are a special formula

maintain a seven pound pull force. Lift tabs at the lip of the cups allow for vacuum
release for easy removal.
to suction cups is the PTI Dual Grip pad pairs. These clear colored re-closable
pads (similar to Velcro) are approximately one inch in diameter and hold the solar
screen closer to the glass than the suction cups. This is a great advantage
for use on sliding windows and sliding glass doors where the clearance
prohibits suction cups from passing the frame.
|The pads are
fused to the solar screen at the same locations as where the suction
cups would have normally been placed. Their mating pads, which you affix to the
window (or for that fact, any surface desired), are backed with an ultra high

dimpled glass, scratched glass or anywhere that suction cups will not hold.
exact size and shape specifications are met when cutting the screen into a
final solar shade panel. Because the PolyCB2 screen mesh is welded at every
cross point of the fine weave, the edges will not unravel or fray. This gives
good clean edges to the finished solar shade panel.
shade panels can be left in place for an indefinite period of time or can be
easily removed and rolled up for storage. If suction cups are used for
mounting, removal will leave a clear glass surface behind. If the Dual Grip
pads are used, the small clear colored pads will remain affixed to the glass
at intervals next to the frame.
