Most quality outdoor solar roller shades are engineered to accommodate larger sizes up to 228" wide and come with a choice of side track or cable guide systems to provide greater stability in breezy conditions. Additionally, most quality patio sun shades will include a fully enclosed headbox for greater product protection when retracted and either a crank or motorized option for operation.
Please understand, outdoor roller shades come in a variety of price and quality tiers. At the lower tiers, you will find basic 8' outdoor roller shades, available at your big box store, that are not custom to your space, but many find acceptable for a season or two for some shade. At the other end, are fully motorized options with cable guides or side tracks to create a really special space with a designer look. And of course, as it true with most products, there are a myriad of options in between.
For the client whose outside space is as important to them as their inside space, custom outdoor roller shades are an amazing enhancement to your home.
