Screen Tensioning System (Zipper Screens)
With this system the screen is locked into the tracks thus eliminating the gap between the tracks and the fabric along with the hem bar coming down to the bottom with a brush to close-off the door or patio area. This gives you protection against insects and other pests.
On your patio, they will create an entire room for you and your pets. On your patio, windows and doors they give you protection from the sun's heat and glare for a longer period of time because they can stay down much longer than regular retractable screens.
Because they are locked into the tracks they can withstand much more wind than a regular retractable screen which must retract when the wind exceeds 18mph on your patio and 22 mph on your windows or doors. There are different kinds of winds – GUSTING WINDS, SUSTAINED WINDS, MICROBURSTS, ETC. Human intervention and common sense will tell you whether you want to be outside or not and should tell you whether to raise the screens or leave them down.
From Heavy Duty Bug Screen to 98% Sun Screen to Acrylic Fabric with or without Marine Grade Clear Vinyl windows to complete Blackout fabric this can be your answer to multiple problems.
