Elite FRT Retractable Shades
Are you looking for some protection from the sun, heat & wind? Maybe you are looking to enclose your patio but don’t want permanent walls and would like to keep your view? Or maybe you’re looking for daytime privacy.
Our Elite Fabric Retention Track (FRT) Shade System block the sun & heat and handle the often breezy conditions of the Tri-cities/Eastern Washington and Northern Oregon well. These shades are manufactured in Tucson, Arizona where they understand & design shades to handle wind, sun and other weather related elements.
Perfect for patio areas & covers, pergolas, gazebos, windows, garage doors and more… these beautiful, easy-to-use, durable mesh screens can block up to 97% of sun, wind, and mist yet let in soft, filtered light and air all while keeping the view of your landscape.
How does out Elite Fabric Retention Shade (FRT) System work?
FRT’s have an inner guide that holds the fabric in place and the metal track holds the heavy weighted hem bar in place. This virtually seals the opening of the area. A heavy duty powered coated box sits horizontally and attaches to the structure & houses the shade. When the shade is retracted the fabric concealed and protected in the box.
Occassionally, because concrete slopes away from a home, it’s difficult to drop a shade and not have some gapping. But we have a new option for that that is designed to adjust to most slopes! Watch our video here: Adjustable hem bar
With this shade system we can provide a way to completely seal an outdoor space but still provide airflow, daytime privacy & yes…you keep your outside view! Open or close the shades when you want to. We put you in charge!
