Windshield Sun Shades

Sun and heat can make your car or truck an uncomfortable place on a hot summer day and over time cause serious and expensive interior damage. Luckily we have a simple solution. A sun shade is an economical, easy-to-use, way to prevent personal discomfort and costly damage caused by the sun. Just place a sun shade behind your windshield whenever you park your car in the sun and you can block destructive UV rays and lower the interior temperature by up to 50°F. To further cool and protect your ride we also offer side and rear window shades, sunroof shades, and full vehicle shade kits.

    A closed car parked in the sun on a hot summer day becomes a greenhouse, with the windows letting in plenty of sunlight but at the same time trapping heat inside the vehicle. While greenhouses are great for plants, the greenhouse effect isn’t so great for you and your car. You know how uncomfortable it is getting into the car, especially if you’re wearing shorts and you have vinyl or leather upholstery. These materials, especially when they’re black, absorb heat, and in extreme cases can even cause a skin burn. But the damage sun and heat can do to your car is even more severe.

    The interior temperature of a closed car on a hot, sunny day can soar past 120°F, and some surfaces like the dashboard can reach 180°F or more. Such heat and UV rays can fade and cause unsightly cracks and splits on the dash. Upholstery can also fade and the heat can dry out the oil in leather, causing it to crack. The heat can also cause chemicals from the various interior materials to off-gas and create a film on the inside of the windows, affecting visibility. The sun’s damaging rays are insidious, but if ignored over time they can end up costing you plenty in repair bills to replace cracked and faded dash panels and upholstery, or in the decreased value of your vehicle if such damage is present come resale or trade-in time. Sun shades are the inexpensive way to preserve your interior.

    We offer windshield sun shades that are custom made for each application, so you can be confident of perfect fit and complete windshield coverage. Most feature an outer surface that reflects the sun and deflects damaging UV rays, and the shade will also insulate your interior from the heat. Some shades are black on the other side and can be reversed in the winter to absorb heat and prevent frost buildup. Most shades are easy to install, and require nothing more than your sun visors to stay in place. When not in use, the sun shade folds or rolls up for compact storage and some come with a convenient storage bag. Keep a sun shade handy and use it whenever the sun is blazing, to maintain your comfort and preserve your interior.

    In addition to windshield shades, on our digital shelves you’ll also find sun shades for car side and rear windows, and sunroofs, as well as full vehicle shade kits, for many makes and models. Like our windshield shades, these shades are custom made for each application for a perfect fit, and with their installation you can further reduce your interior temperature while protecting your cabin from damage. And if reflective silver is not your style we also have shades emblazoned with automotive and college logos, images of superheroes and cartoon characters, and scenes from popular movies and TV shows. You can cool and protect your interior and at the same time make it look like the crew of the Starship Enterprise or the Millennium Falcon is piloting your vessel!

    And because sunshine isn’t the only thing hitting your windshield you have to be concerned with, we also offer snow shields. If you’re tired of scraping ice and snow from your windshield in freezing temperatures, then a snow shield is for you. Each of the shields we carry is made tough to hold up under extreme winter weather conditions, and custom made for the specific application, so you get perfect fit and complete windshield coverage. They’re easy to install, with the lower half retained by the wiper blades, and straps or flaps trapped between the A-pillars and doors securing the sides, to prevent theft and resist high winds. After a snowfall, just remove the shield – and all that snow and ice - roll it up for storage and you can be on your way.
