Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Bud Effective sun blocker
This is more effective in my opinion than window film. The only downsides are it is very thick, so a little difficult to install. Requires you to use spline one size smaller than you would with convention screen. It also significantly darkens your interior, as you would expect from a sun blocking product. That said the results seem great. Really does the job blocking east - west sun here in Florida. Exterior appearance is pretty dark as well, and it definitely does not allow as much air to pass thru the screen.

We've got a couple of sliding glass doors that face west. During the summer the glass gets hot to the touch. I replaced one of the sliders' screen with the "super solar screen". Now the glass is only warm. However, the amount of air coming thru the "super solar screen" is only a fraction of what comes thru regular screening. So, it's a mixed bag.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by SunnyinFlorida Works great
I live in Tampa, Florida. I used this on my 1/2 screens all around the house. I showed my neighbors the difference and I ended up doing all their screens as well. I also cut the screening to fit my sliding glass doors which are 36" x 8 foot. I used suction cups in the corners to hold the screening onto the glass. Works wonderful. Another thing - during the day I can see out, but others cannot see in. I highly recommend this product to cut the sun and heat.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Galium Worked surprisingly well - No Need to Tint Windows !!
Bought this screen fabric based on another reviewer's idea of using as sun shade material for non-opening windows. We cut the screen material to fit the windows, turned over a small hem at the top, stapled it together to create a small rod pocket. Suspend these guys on the inside of our windows with spring tension rods. They work FANTASTIC!! We can see thru them, the plants still get lots of light, they block so much of the afternoon sun and heat, and when Summer's over - just pluck 'em right out of the window to save for next year. I only bought one 25ft roll and it did 4 big windows in my 12 window great room. I'm ordering more! Easy to do, cuts with scissors - I am so happy with it ! Two 25 ft rolls for $52.00 each is way better than $900 to tint the windows - and I can remove it at any time. Totally recommend!

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by ChrisH Just too dark...
Wanted to like this product, but it's just too dark to be useful. I understand the necessity of it (in order to block out sunlight) but there has to be some middle-ground between utility and appearance. The room we installed this in became almost depressingly dark... May try an e-coating or something instead.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by VinMz Keep your house cool with added privacy! =)
I live in Las Vegas and the summer sun is super hot... I was able to cover four of my windows with just one roll and it makes a huge difference...my house is a few degrees cooler cause of the screens. Another added bonus is additional privacy... people can't see into the house during the day, but you're able to look out. Awesome.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Sebastian Too much blockage, all you see is screen
The view is terrible. When I look out the window, all I see is screen. And it blocks so much light, the room is very dreary. I returned it and went with the Suntex 80 instead, which is better. I would have preferred the Phifer "Sunscreen" but it only is sold in a 100ft roll!

Really does block out a lot of sun. Put this on all of your screens you will see a drop in utilities.
