Drop screens are flat pieces of specialty fabric designed to keep out the harmful rays of the sun and sometimes, if you’re using a mesh drop screen, allow some natural lighting in. Drop screens can be manually cranked/rolled or automatically retracted or unfurled down windows or on the sides of an awning.
In fact, drop shades used in combination with an awning are excellent for restaurants and other businesses. For restaurants, using a clear vinyl drop screen is great because it’s like having a window without the glass. The awning and drop screens create an enclosed area outdoors on the patio or in your backyard. Thus, you’re basically extending your business’ footprint.
Customers want to dine outside and providing a cool, shaded patio is an attractive option that many clientele will opt for in the summer months. For clothing shops and other businesses, using drop screens on your windows in the interior is an excellent way to provide shade and natural lighting while protecting your products from the harmful uv rays of the sun which can discolor fabric and furniture.
