Skylight Shades

DIY (Do It Yourself) Exterior Skylight Shades.

Using our patented no-drill EZ Snap® fastening system, you can install skylight solar shades and exterior skylight blinds on all sizes and brands of skylights.

Exterior Skylight Sun Blocking ShadesEZ Snap’s heat blocking skylight covers are guaranteed to fit all glass, polycarbonate, and acrylic skylights manufactured by brands including:

  • Velux
  • Columbia
  • Fakro
  • Wasco
  • Bristolite
  • Sun Optics
  • Sun-Tek

Install your own professional looking exterior skylight shades in minutes and protect your house from the sun’s heat, while still retaining the natural light.

Skylights are far worse than windows for letting in the sun’s heat.

Skylights typically face the sun directly, and so much more heat is able to enter the home than on a side window of the same size. Many skylights do not have the same insulating value that residential windows have. Skylights act more like a magnifying glass than windows do.

EZ Snap® skylight shades and skylight blinds provide DIY installation in minutes without any special tools or experience.

EZ Snap® Exterior Shade Screens

EZ Snap® shading mesh is an Optical Grade of exterior window shade material that blocks up to 90% of the sun’s heat.

Most shade cloth mesh or solar screens will provide a significant shade factor, but many of them will distort your vision when you look through them because of their weave style.

EZ Snap® proprietary shade mesh may be cut to any size or shape without the need for hemming or binding the cut edges. Learn More »

Skylight Solar Shades & Blinds

A big box store skylight manufacturer tested the effectiveness of exterior skylight blinds to see how much extra heat exterior shade mesh would stop. Test results proved that heat gain was reduced by up to 40% (even on their best double sealed  low-E skylight with an energy efficient glazing).

Even though EZ Snap® solar shades block up to 90% of the sun’s heat, they still let lots of natural light into your home.

Watch the video demo and you will discover that EZ Snap® skylight shade kits are the quickest and easiest way for you to block the sun’s heat from your skylight, without blocking the natural light.

Our 3M adhesive mounting studs save you from drilling holes into your skylights’ metal or vinyl frames. For wooden skylight frames, we also have stainless steel screw studs.

Our skylight shade kits will fit any skylight from the smallest size skylight, all the way up to 6′ x 50′. For larger commercial installations, multiple pieces of shade material can be used together.

How to Install Skylight Shades on Domed Skylights:

If you are DIY installing on domed or plastic skylight, we recommend that you add some of our AirFlow suction cup spacers to your order.

The plastic pin is simply inserted through your shading mesh and into the suction cup to hold it in place.

On a domed skylight, these spacers are typically placed in the center,  along the highest point in the dome. For larger skylights, you may also want to add additional spacers to help retain an air gap over the entire surface of the skylight surface.

These will add an additional 1″ gap between the skylight surface and the shading mesh, further improving the performance and durability of your installation.

Exterior Skylight Shades Block up to 90% the Sun outside, before the heat gets to the interior of your home or office.

EZ Snap® skylight covers install outside without screws. Using the EZ Snap® fastening system, you can install skylight solar shades to fit all sizes and brands of glass and acrylic skylights, including Velux and Columbia skylights.
