Four Benefits of Installing Habitat Screens by Talius

When people ask me what Habitat Screens are, my reply is to think of them as sunglasses for your house. Habitat screens are like interior blinds, however they are on the outside of your home where they have several benefits.

Retractable Screens

Habitat Screens are adjustable to provide shade when you need it. In the evening, or when you want to open the windows, the screen retracts neatly into a 5″ panel box.

Energy Efficient

Installed on the outside of your windows, Habitat Screens absorb the sun’s heat and glare before it reaches the glass, keeping it outside. This saves you money on air conditioning costs and will protect your carpets, upholstery, and hardwood floors from fading caused by the sun’s UV rays. Hardwood in particular can dry out and warp, and Habitat Screens will aid in this not occurring. If you display artwork, the screens will help protect your paintings and prints from fading.


Habitat Screens reduce the need for blinds, drapes or other window treatments. This allows the room to appear larger, and can make the room feel less cluttered. Habitat screens are available in a variety of colours, sizes and materials to suit the look of your home. To maintain their attractiveness, all you really need to do to clean your Habitat screen is hose them off.  Habitat Screens are simple to clean.


Habitat Screens are not only limited to your house but can be used for a variety of living spaces. Patios, gazebos, porches, garages, and decks can all be transformed into comfortable living spaces free from the sun’s heat and glare, without sacrificing your view. What’s even better, is that habitat screens are customizable for all sorts of climates. For example, in Ottawa we are prone to high wind storms once or twice a year. While Habitat screens are fine in light wind conditions, they will be damaged in high winds. That’s why Talius offers a wind detection device that will roll up your screens automatically should it detect high speed winds.


Habitat screens are a wonderful way to save money, keep your house cool, and beautify your living space. By buying Talius, you are also supporting Canadian families as Talius is manufactured in British Columbia. Below is a short video provided by Talius which further explains the benefits of Habitat Screens.
