If you’ve ever had your campsite aimed broadside into the setting sun, especially in the desert where that sun is not blocked by trees or a distant mountain, you know that the late afternoon sun can get quite hot when it shines in under your awning.
You can stay cooler longer – and keep the sun out of your eyes – with an awning drop-down sun blocker, a see-through screen that effectively cuts the heat and brightness while still offering visibility.
The EZ ZipBlocker Awning Sun Blocker slides into the empty slot at the front of your awning and drops down to become a sun screen. The top portion stays in your awning to make it easier to reach – and unzip the lower part – without having to lower the awning just to remove the screen when not needed. The open weave of the fabric cuts approximately 85% of the sun’s light to keep you cool and comfortable.
Dyers Online carries the EZ ZipBlocker in a variety of sizes to fit most awnings.
