Our skylight cover products are designed to absorb and dissipate up to 90 percent of the sun’s heat and glare before it reaches the glass. This results in a more comfortable indoor temperature, more efficient air conditioning and ultimately energy conservation. In fact, studies have shown that solar screen protected skylights can save up to 25% of the cost of air conditioning when compared to non-protected skylights.
Our skylight covers reduce the harmful UV rays that damage drapes, furnishings, and décor. These energy-saving solar screens are constructed to enhance a variety of exterior building roofs and are easily installed on virtually any type of skylight both residential and commercial.
Greenguard Certification ensures products have met some of the world’s most rigorous and comprehensive standards for low emissions of volatile organic compounds (VOCs) into indoor air.

Our skylight covers provide excellent reduction in solar heat gain for a more comfortable environment and less work for your air conditioner. Allowing diffused natural light in may also reduce the need for additional interior lighting for added savings.
Our skylight covers are lead free, meeting and far exceeding several window covering industry testing standards for hazardous materials. Exterior Sun Control products comply with RoHS/Directive 2002/95/EC, the US Consumer Product Safety Commission Section 101 and ANSI/WCMA A100.1-2007 for lead content. According to the Environmental Protection Agency, certain levels of exposure to lead, which can be found in everything from painted toys and furniture to soil around a home, can result in a variety of health effects. Even low levels of exposure can be harmful to children. The lead-free stamp marks another confirmation of Phifer’s commitment to remain environmentally responsible.
