PTI overhead solar shade screen mesh covers
for pergolas, trellises, open decks, porches or patios will lower
heat from the sun by as much as 30 degrees on hot days.
80% UV filtering screen mesh is recommended
to cover all overhead structures such as a pergola or
trellis. The high air flow allows
hot air to rise and escape. The exclusive construction
and formulation of the shade screen mesh prevents high
frequency UV radiation from heating the area and objects

escapes upward through the pores of the overhead shade
screen. Your pergola, trellis, porch, patio or deck

The shade screen covers can be mounted on top of the
structure or below the rafters of the structure. Special
mounting attachment is employed when mounting below. The
picture to the right shows a partial pergola cover and displays
the shade pattern that is cooling the surface of the deck below.
Mounting of the shade cover is done by means of stainless
steel grommets on the hemmed edges (and elsewhere as
needed). This allows for various secure methods of
attachment: permanent screw down; marine style quick
release; rope tie-off; etc..
