Betterliving™ Horizontal Shades

An innovation in outdoor privacy, wind protection & shading.


Convenient Privacy, Wind Break & Shading for Your Patio

Retractable Privacy Panel for Small Patios

The Betterliving™ horizontal retractable shade meets a growing interest in high-tech shade products that can be used as needed for shelter and privacy. In addition to blocking sun and wind, horizontal shades provide privacy on townhouse decks and terraces. Many fabrics are available, including our 100% solution-dyed acrylic awning fabrics in many decorator solids and patterns, as well as our line of solar shade fabrics with varying weave patterns to achieve the desired level of privacy or protection from the sun.

The aluminum pull rail glides easily on the bottom caster and hooks into place using maintenance-free stainless hardware. The fabric is spring-loaded so it doesn’t sag and retracts cleanly into the aluminum cassette. The shade is built with anti-kickback technology for safe operation.

Our horizontal shades are available (A) mounted between two wall surfaces or (B) between one wall surface and our floor-mounted post.

Shades are available in heights from 46 inches and to 96 inches can project up to 13 feet depending on the thickness of the fabric used.
