80% Rectangular Shaped Solar Screens using 5/16" x 1" Framing : Rectangular shaped solar screens are solar screens with four 90 degree angled corners, which include shapes like square and rectangular. This solar screen is made out of the 80% fabric, we recommend the 80% fabric for all windows that get 4 hours or less of sun. We recommend the 90% fabric for windows that get 4 hours or more of sun, generally those windows that face the West. This screen is made out of the 5/16" x 1" wide framing. For strength, we recommend building all solar screens that are larger than 32"x50" out of this 5/16"x1" wide framing. This size of framing is good for all sized solar screens. If you are needing a larger sized screen, say anything larger than 32"x50", for strength we definitely recommend using this 5/16"x1" framing instead of the smaller 5/16" x 3/4" framing.


HARDWARE:
(4) 3/4" Self Tapping Screws - Each Full Arch Shaped Solar Screen comes with (4) 3/4" Self Tapping Screws for a direct screw on installation.
(2) 3/4" Screws & (2) Flush Clips with Leaf Springs - For windows that have a track (channel) at the top and bottom and you do not want to direct screw the screen, you will want to use this hardware option.
(2) 3/4" and (4) 1" Self Tapping Screws w/ (4) 5/16" Metal turn Clips - If you have a metal window that does not have a track (channel) at the top and bottom and you do not want to direct screw the screen with the provided (4) 3/4" Self Tapping Screws, you can choose to use this hardware option.



SUPPORT BAR: Support Bars are used to provide strength for the screen. If the screen is not going to be direct screwed, you will want to use a support bar to keep the screen from bowing in. When you direct screw a screen you can always pull the screen tight, but if a screen is going to be held by clips or sit into tracks at the top or bottom of the window, you will want to use a support bar so the fabric stays tight and does not get wavy. A support bar is generally measured, so that when used it is concealed behind/over the break in the window. When installing a solar screen, you install the screen with the support bar between the fabric and your window. Installed properly, you will not be able to see the support bar from either the outside or inside of the window. Watch this video to clearly understand how to measure for a Horizontal and Vertical Support bar.


HOW TO MEASURE & INSTALL VIDEOS

Windows that have a track (channel) built into the window at the top and bottom of the window that make it possible to hold a full sized solar screen. A full size solar screen is one that fits over the entire window that is held in place by these tracks using leaf springs at the top of the screen to provide tension to help hold the screen in place. This video provides installation assistance as well as measuring assistance for these type of windows.
