External Roller Shades

Bring indoor entertaining outdoors.

Our External Roller Shades are the ultimate external solution for any outdoor area or window. Signature Shade Solutions External Roller Shades offer privacy and protection from the sun. Our roller shades can handle high winds, rain, and insects all year round.  We even have Hurricane Rated Roller Shades!

Direct sun is the greatest source of unwanted heat. Our roller solar shades offer an exterior shading solution for your outdoor lanai and/or windows, creating an effective barrier before the sun hits your windows or space, which in return actively reduces heat and cuts glare keeping your house cooler, more comfortable, and energy costs down.

Our External Roller Screens are forward-thinking and innovative. We have 5 different external roller shade solutions to choose from. Our top of the line being the Progressive Screens MagnaTrack™ system. Ideal for commercial application and/or high wind areas. We also have the Progressive Screens Defender Series for all your hurricane rated roller shade needs.


Progressive Screens’ NEW patented MagnaTrack™ system overcomes any inherent hangup issues, like re-wrapping or dislodging shades from sidetracks. The MagnaTrack system will never get hung or dislodge and is only available in Hawaii through Signature Shade Solutions.  The system utilizes internal neodymium magnets that allow the inner kedar track to free float with no mechanical fasteners. 

It self-adjusts for un-level surfaces and is self-tensioning, so your screen is always taut. The magnets act like a shock absorber for your screen, which has give but always stays tight!  MagnaTrack™ is the only self-correcting motorized screen in the industry! GUARANTEED to outperform any competitive product and built to last a lifetime.

Hurricane Screen Defender Series

Looks just like a regular roller shade, only STRONGER!  Signature Shade Solutions offers the Defender Screen from Progressive Screens. Their structurally-engineered roller and weight bars are unparalleled in strength, rigidity, and durability.

​The Defender Hurricane Screen System uses MagnaTrack™ technology that is integrated with an exclusive reinforcement channel; this is the only system in the world that uses magnetic fields to dampen the impact of wind loads and flying debris while maintaining a flat and uniform normal screen surface appearance when deployed. Self Adjusting Technology (SAT) is built into every system, which allows the screen to freely deploy in windy conditions without hang-ups or rewraps, common in other competitive products. 

Hurricane Tough Mesh:  All Defender Screens use a blend of high tenacity PET and Aramid core yarns encapsulated with a durable vinyl mesh screen that defends against severe hurricanes, insects, solar rays, and offers maximum outdoor privacy. It also protects your structure from Category 5 hurricane winds, exceeding 156 mph with any heavy, flying debris. All fabrics used in Defender Screens come with a 10-year warranty.
