It’s Easy to Measure for Your EasyShade

Solar-Powered EasyShades

  1. Measure for the width of your EasyShade®
    EasyShades come in widths from 3 to 12 ft., in 6 in. increments.
    The total width is the width of the aluminum housing.
    Note: The actual fabric width is 3 in. less than the total housing width.
  2. Make sure you have at least 3-1/4 in. of clear, unobstructed space horizontally along your wall where you can install the brackets that hold the EasyShade housing. The mounting brackets are universal and can be mounted on a wall or hung from a soffit or ceiling.
  3. Make sure you have space down the sides of your installation area where you can attach the small brackets that hold the Solar-Powered EasyShade's stainless steel guiding cables. These brackets can be installed down a maximum of 7 ft., which is the maximum distance the shade will unroll.
