Yorkshire-based AlluGuard has long been renowned as a leading garage door producer. But the company is currently enjoying major sales success with a new product that gives customers an innovative and adaptable way to protect homes and property from the harmful glare of the sun. Called SolidScreen, the product is a textile screen that keeps rooms nice and cool and lets in natural light, whilst reducing direct sunlight entering a property by up to 90%. SolidScreen is made from corrosion-protected exterior grade materials for long-lasting good looks and performance, whilst all products come CE marked and have been independently tested for safe operation and compliance in line with legislation EN 13241-1. Not only does SolidScreen ensure privacy and cool shade, it also significantly cuts out glare and protects carpets and other fabrics from the damaging UV rays that can have an irreversible bleaching effect. Solid Screen can be fitted externally - it is fully weather protective and has been wind tested up to 145km/h - or internally. The compact housing requires just 105mm for screens up to 3m x 3m, whilst large windows up to 15m 2 are possible thanks to zip guide technology that ensures the screen is securely held and cannot distort. And an extensive range of different fabrics are available – so it’s easy to coordinate SolidScreen with existing interior or exterior décor. And SolidScreen is incredibly easy to use as it is powered by Somfy automation technology, with a range of operation methods available - including remote control, wall switch, and keypad. The product is also fully compatible with smart home solutions, so can be linked up to the Somfy TaHoma smart home system. This revolutionary system allows consumers to control SolidScreen - as well as garage doors, curtains, blinds, heating, electrical equipment and more - through a smartphone, computer or tablet, from anywhere in the world. “SolidScreen is putting in a really strong sales performance for us at present,” says Eugene Perez, Sales Manager at AlluGuard. “It works for both the commercial and homeowner markets and the quality of the product is exceptional, so a lot of demand is coming as the result of word of mouth recommendations. The fact that it all links up with the TaHoma smart home system is another very important selling point, as it offers consumers so much flexibility. For example, if you’re out and about on a hot and sunny day, you can just whip out your Smartphone and pull down SolidScreen across your home – so you get back to a cool and fresh environment.” To find out more about AlluGuard garage doors and smart home solutions call 0845 3665831 or email To see AlluGuard products in action, go to or visit
