Sun Screens

According to the Department of Housing and Urban Development, "A good way to keep your house cool in the summer is to shade it from the outside. Any way that stops the sun before it gets through the glass is seven times as good at keeping you cool as blinds or curtains on the inside."

At United Aluminum, we only utilize the best quality materials and that is why we rely on Phifer’s Suntex® exterior sun control screens. Installs like an insect screen to help cool your home by reflecting, absorbing and dispersing solar heat and glare before it penetrates the glass in your windows and doors. We also provide sun screens made out of louvered aluminum panels that provide shade to carports and patios for protection from the hot Arizona's sun and heat.


SunTex® is a unique woven mesh that can block 80-90% of the sun’s hot rays before they enter your windows. SunTex® is ideal for use as a shading fabric on windows, doors and porches and offers good ventilation. This heavy-duty fabric made of strong vinyl-coated polyester is resistant to pet damage. Developed originally for use in outdoor furniture, SunTex® is mildew and fade resistant and needs only an occasional cleaning with mild soap and water.


The chart here shows a window with Brown SunTex installed. In midsummer as much as 230 BTUs can fall on each unprotected square foot of glass. With SunTex installed, up to 80% of the sun's heat and glare is reflected, absorbed and dissipated before it strikes the window.
