Which mesh do you need?

Your screen’s mesh gives you a surprising amount of control over what comes in and out of your space. Choose a tighter or looser weave for your ideal combination of air, light, heat and bugs.

Insect Mesh

Whether it’s horseflies or no-see-ums, our insect meshes come in a variety of weaves to keep out whatever’s bugging you. It’s also the most open type of mesh, so it provides more ventilation and visibility while reducing up to 55% of UV rays.

What kind of opening are you trying to screen?

Whether you've got gorgeous folding doors, or a sliding glass wall overlooking the valley, we have a screen that will make it even more stunning. We've got screens for:

Oversized doors

In-swing, out-swing, sliding, or French. We don't sweat it if your door is larger than industry standard.

Folding or sliding glass walls

The only thing more refreshing than a glass wall is a glass wall that opens, and we're here to screen it.

Stacking or lift-and-slide door systems

We pride ourselves on screening unique doors that exceed standard measurements, and standard expectations.

What are the measurements?

Your screen will be custom-built to order for a perfect fit.

Which mesh do you need?

Our screens for oversized doors come with captured mesh—that is, the mesh is completely secured in its track for extra sturdiness—to help prevent blow-outs and contain curious pets.

Insect Mesh

Our insect meshes come in a variety of weaves to keep out whatever's bugging you. This is also the most open type of mesh, so it provides more ventilation and visibility while reducing up to 55% of UV rays. We also offer heavy-duty, pet-resistant insect meshes that are stronger than our regular insect meshes.

Customizable stopping points

If you like, select one or more points anywhere along the track for your screen to stop at, so you can keep traffic flowing along with the breeze.
