Shading my home

Solar mesh types reduce heat and glare by up to 97% as well as keeping insects out. Solar mesh is perfect for keeping your home cooler and protecting your carpets, drapes and furniture from fading.

Creating climate controlled spaces

Clear vinyl walls create the perfect transitional living space to entertain your guests throughout the year. In the colder months, studies have shown that it reduces heat loss, while in the warm months it helps to keep your living space cool. These screens can be added by themselves, or as part of a dual roller system that lets you choose between the clear vinyl or one of our other mesh options.

Increasing privacy

Privacy mesh and fabrics Blocks between 80-100% of UV rays, and is available in multiple screen colors and openness factors depending on your airflow requirements. White and light colored fabrics are reflective of light and provide complete privacy during the day but at night they have a reverse effect. Black and dark colors are absorbent of light and provide the best visibility day and night. To get total privacy day and night a 100% Black Out material would be required (No visibility).

Protecting my home from UV rays

All of our fabrics block UV rays to various extents. Our privacy and solar meshes can all block between 80%-97% of UV rays from entering your home. Insect and solar meshes can also provide as much as 50% UV protection.

Protecting my home from insects

Insect mesh is ideal where bugs are a problem, this mesh type also reduces up to 50% of UV rays. Insect mesh also features a higher openness factor, which gives you more ventilation and visibility to the outside. Special meshes to deal with no see ums and other tiny insects are available.

Increasing airflow

If bug-free airflow through your home is important – stick to meshes with high openness factors such as our insect meshes. The higher the openness factor, the easier it is for air and light to pass through.

Seam Height

Please refer to seam height chart to determine the right fabric selection based on the width and height of your opening. If the opening is wider or taller than the height of the fabric is woven to, then it would require us to seam/sew two sections of the material together to create the perfect size screen for your application. Your authorized Progressive Screens dealer will be happy to assist you during this process.
