Each screen is custom manufactured to your exact specifications (up to 25' in both directions!), utilizing superior parts from the screen itself, to the motor, housing, and all the other pieces that come together to make up one great product that competitors just can't match.

Templar also takes quality control seriously. Do we recommend using the screen as a trampoline? No.
But it's been done. They've also rented a racetrack for the ultimate wind test against +80 mph speeds, without failure.

Reduce Your Home's Carbon Footprint

In the hotter seasons, about 76% of the sunlight that comes through standard windows enters to become heat. Exterior shades are about 40% more effective than interior shades in blocking out heat and UV rays, significantly reducing energy consumption (and cooling costs) by regulating temperatures while still permitting significant view and light transmission.

Templar Screens is meticulous in their engineering and their custom made product is built to order, eliminating wasted materials as well.

How Do Motorized Shades Work?

This part is easy! The window shade you selected mounts cleanly to the exterior of your home by a NW Natural Lighting installer. Measured to perfectly cover your window, or extend across patio openings, these exterior blinds are sized to match your property exactly.

Once the window coverings are mounted to the exterior of your home, you can open and close them with your remote control, smartphone app, or smart home device.

In the case of multiple shades installed on a home, they can be synced to open and close together. Your screen's high-quality Alpha Motors ensure for smooth screen deployment and stowing, every time.
