Solara Sky

SolaraSky is an energy efficient, retractable skylight shading system that is custom manufactured by Brading Fabrication Limited. Designed to optimize light control and reduce heat gain through skylights, SolaraSky is the ideal window covering solution for your skylights and sunroom ceilings.

SolaraSky fabric is 100% non-woven polyester. This spun textile has been proven to withstand over a decade of heat, cold, and damaging ultraviolet light. A single layer of honeycomb cells provide exceptional thermal insulation, while still allowing the natural light to “filter through” the fabric. A uniform white backing maximizes the reflection of radiant heat while providing a neutral appearance from the exterior of your home. Optional blackout fabrics are available for bedroom applications.

SolaraSky fabric is available in several designer colours, however a soft “off white” is most often recommended for roof glass applications. Neutral tones allow the shade to blend in with the skylight structure when not in use.

The high performance cellular style fabric is perfect for skylight applications since it has been proven to be energy efficient. The internal honeycomb configuration allows the fabric high structural integrity while trapping the air to act as an insulator and significantly reduce heat transfer. Once the shade is fully covering the skylight, the side tracking system tends to create a “trapped air cavity” between the inside of the skylight and back of the cellular fabric. It is these multi layers of “dead air” space that create the high R factor.
