Ordering Special Shapes  
Most special shapes can be defined with a few measurements. Some may require drawings, a picture, or in extreme cases a template. If your order consists only of squares or rectangles, you can bypass this page.
Regardless of how the information is conveyed to us, the orientation of all dimensions must be as if you were looking at the glass through the solar shade panel. This will assist us in turning the dimensions into the proper shape and in locating which side of the panel to place the cups or pads.
This article is divided into four sections. You may click on one of the links below to proceed directly or scroll down through the entire article.
On the ordering page is a section that you can open and select from a list of basic special shape styles. In that section you will be able to insert the required measurements that will describe your special shape. Under the headings below, we will attempt to adequately explain the measurements that are required to define special shapes. 
Orientation: Looking at the face of the glass pane where panel will mount. 
The shape of any triangle can be defined by the combination of 3 dimensions:
Left Side (L)
Right Side (R)
Base or Bottom (B)
Note: Right Angle Triangles (one 90 degree angle) do not require that the hypotenuse (long side) be measured.
Quadrilaterals (any four sided shape)
Orientation: Looking at the face of the glass pane where panel will mount. 
All four sided shapes can be defined by the combination of 5 dimensions:
Left Side (L)
Right Side (R)
Top Side (T)
Base or Bottom (B)
Diagonal (D) -- this is the
distance from the lower Left Side (L) corner to the upper Right Side (R) corner. The diagonal measurement locks in place the overall shape by affixing the angles and should be double checked for accuracy.
Note: Four sided shapes with two right angles (90 degrees) do not require a diagonal measurement.
Arches and Partial Arch Shapes
Orientation: Looking at the face of the glass pane where panel will mount. 
Full Arches can be defined by simple measurements of Height (H) and Base (B) since there is no left or right orientation.   
Half Arches and their orientation can be defined by the Base (B) measurement and using either the Left Side (L) or Right Side (R) which will give not only the height but the  direction that the curved side faces. Arches are considered to be any part of, but no more than, half of a full circle with the height being the top portion of the circle
(see: Continuous Curve Window Sets below).
Arch Top Rectangles are an arch with a rectangular area residing below the arch. The arches on top can be a "full arch" or a "half arch" with a flat side extending from top to bottom.
Rectangles with a Full Arch top require 2 height measurements and 1 base measurement. The definition of these measurements are:

     Total Height (H1) -- distance from the base or bottom to the top of the arch. 
Side Height (H2) -- distance from the base or bottom to the "base line" of the arch.
Base or Bottom (B) -- full width of the panel.
Half Arch Rectangles can be defined with our standard side and base measurements which are:
             Left Side (L) 
             Right Side (R)
             Base or Bottom (B)
The left and right side measurements convey the direction of the curve and the radius of the arch.
Continuous Curve Window Sets: It is not unusual for a set of three or more windows to follow a continuous curve across the top. With a little precise measuring, the actual radius of the curvature can be calculated for any window within the set with just four measurements:
      Left Side (L)        Right Side (R)
      Base or Bottom (B)      Center Height (CH)
The Center Height is the length of a vertical line, centered between the two sides, from the Base to the point where it intersects with the curve. The difference between the measurements of left side and right side will designate which direction the curve is facing. 
Note: If the curve does not set on top of a rectangle, then the short side (or no side) should be marked as zero (0). 
Arches With Dividers: It is quite common for arched windows to contain decorative dividers that protrude slightly off the glass surface. If so, it is essential that you let us know the number of dividers so that we can properly install cups or pads. Generally, the number of dividers will be from 1 to 3, spaced equally.  
Shapes That Require Drawings
Orientation: Looking at the face of the glass pane where panel will mount. 
Complex shapes such as: five sides or more; shapes with cutouts; special curvatures; and many marine, auto and RV windows most often require submitted drawings or templates and/or pictures. If you need assistance, please don't hesitate to contact us. Our professional staff is at your service.
