Solar Eclipse™

Our Solar Eclipse™ Sunshade System and Solar Eclipse™ Single Blade Sunshade provide beautiful building accents and passive solar control. Both systems pair seamlessly with many of our popular storefront and curtain wall products, including Reliance.™ Easy to install and flexible in design, every detail is engineered to ensure you never sacrifice style for substance.


Our single blade sunshades come in a variety of sizes, shapes, and angle options for easy onsite installation, either vertically or horizontally. Outrigger Sunshades are a traditional outrigger-and-louver design available as factory assembled, or louvers may be ordered in stock lengths for customer fabrication to meet building schedules and field conditions. Both systems offer nearly endless configurations.
