Performance AV was tasked with creating a more useable outdoor patio space for the homeowners of a high-rise penthouse with expansive views of Atlanta. Motorized window shades from Progressive Screens (installed by Performance AV) promised the perfect solution that could withstand the wind and direct sun that the patio is exposed to year-round (many stories up). The screens provided ease of use, quality, and beauty.
Blocking the Sun, Not the View
Progressive Screens Textilene 90 fabric in Desert Sand was chosen to block 90% of UV rays from the sun and 90% of the wind while blocking 0% of the view. The impressive performance of Progressive Screens’ patented MagnaTrack System provides the usability and reliability to withstand constant high winds and blowing rain allowing the homeowners to enjoy their patio in all weather conditions. Progressive Screens won’t block your beautiful view, only the heat, and wind.
The Progressive Screens chosen for the Atlanta high-rise application can be activated together or independently using the Gaposa Handheld Remote. They can also be controlled using the homeowners’ Control4 System providing the homeowners multiple ways to enjoy their re-imagined outdoor space. Integratable with smart home systems and also controllable from your cell or tablet.
This flexibility of independently managing each screen allows them to block wind and sun in different zones, and in varying degrees…while maintaining an open view of the Atlanta skyline.
MagnaTrack System for Hassle-Free Operation
Progressive’s new patented MagnaTrack system outperforms any other zipper-style motorized screen. MagnaTrack is the only motorized screen that can provide completely hassle-free operation – guaranteed.
MagnaTrack is a cutting-edge patented system that uses specially-designed magnets internally secured within the tracks to allow free-floating during deployment, as well as keeping constant tension on the screen. This innovative system reduces installation time, as well as eliminates 98% of all common service issues and callback requests. MagnaTrack is only available through Progressive Screens and authorized dealers across the country, such as Performance AV in Marietta, and Atlanta, Georgia.
