Miscellaneous Questions

I’m worried that the screens will make my room too dark?

This is a common concern from people who have never experienced good quality shade cloth before. We recommend that if you are concerned about this, simple order enough to do one window and see for yourself. Although light levels are less, most people realize that it is not significant and actually appreciate the reduced glare. If you are presently closing drapes or blinds to try and stop the heat, you will actually see a large increase in light levels since you can open the blinds, pull back the drapes and still block the heat.

EZ Snap Sun Shades Block Heat Not View

I have a beautiful view of the lake, but in the heat of the day I have to pull my curtains until sun sets because it is so HOT! I want to stop the heat but I don’t want to lose my view. Can I still enjoy my view with the EZ Snap shades in place?

Yes you can. I guess I would ask you, how much of your view you are seeing when you have the curtains closed to stop the heat? ZERO. With EZ Snap you are able to enjoy your view all day long without closing blinds or curtains. Because EZ Snap tends to reduce glare, your view may even improve over glass alone.

Can I install the EZ Snap shade screens on the inside of my window?

Yes. But remember that it will be up to 7 times more effective at stopping heat if you install it on the outside. We have had customers that have had no choice but to install it on the inside simply because they were living in a high rise apartment and could never reach their windows.

Place approximately 12 inches apart on the lens of the skylight.

AirFlo™ Spacers are recommended for all Dome Skylights or Skylights with Plastic Lens.

To use: Place the spacers approximately 12 inches apart or how every many
would be required to keep the mesh from laying on the skylight lens.

Why do we suggest the AirFlo Spacers: Many dome skylights are quality, "Made in America" skylights, but unfortunately there are
a lot of skylights on the market now that are made off-shore. In very hot weather, these poorly made skylight lens can develop crazing or imperfections in the
plastic of the skylight lens. This is caused by an excessive heat build-up in the sub-standard plastic lens.
The AirFlo™ spacers lift the shading mesh off of the lens of the skylight, allowing the excess heat to dissipate.

NOTE: Using AirFlo Spacers will slightly increase the size of the dimensions of the shading mesh you will need.

If you are confident that you have a quality built dome skylight, then these spacers
are probably not necessary for your project, but if you are unsure, better to be safe than sorry.

The Primer Pen is used for applications where it is necessary to increase the surface adhesion of the EZ Snap stud.

Contains a 3M Clear, Colorless primer. Enough to prime the surface area for approximately 50 studs.

To use: Shake the pen well before using.
A gentle squeeze 1″ in from the felt tip, ruptures the inner membrane, allowing the contents to be easily dispensed.
Apply a thin, uniform coating to the bonding surface using the minimum amount that will fully coat the surface.
Dries clear. Allow to dry thoroughly before applying the studs. This takes approximately 5 minutes at room temperature.
Extremely porous surfaces may need a second application for uniform coverage and good adhesion.

TIP: Make a template, cut-out to the same size as the stud.
This prevents wasting primer by only priming the area that the stud will bond to.
**As with all primer type products, test on small area first to ensure it is compatible with surface.
