This 18×14 fiberglass screening material is the standard material used on most screen enclosures. Phifer claims that their screen lasts 7-10 years on average compared to their competitors at 3-5 or less.
This 17×14 heavy-duty polymer formula provides 3x the tensile strength compared to the standard 18×14 fiberglass mesh. Super Screen is backed with a 10 year limited manufacturer warranty and is resistant to punctures, tears, mildew, and yes, golf balls. Super Screen also comes with stability from UV damage, meaning it is virtually unaffected by the sun; it will not result in bleaching, flaking, and fading, and becoming brittle like other screens. It does however had a UV protection similar to wearing sunblock.
Also known as Florida Glass or Privacy Screen, this is a vinyl-laminated 18×14 fiberglass mesh screen. Glas-Shield is ideal for use on the lower panels of a patio to keep dirt and debris out of a screen enclosure, along with providing privacy in vertical (wall) applications. *not intended for roof or in horizontal applications.
Made from carbon steel, the ceramic coated drill-tek screws are the standard fasteners in screen enclosures. Also, ask about the 410 stainless steel which provides a longer life and resistant to rust and corrosion.
These roofing materials can be used for several applications, including a carport, Florida room (with glass or screen), and to offer a shaded area in a pool or lanai area.
