Quality screen is an important part of a good window design. The purpose of a window screen is to keep
insects, leaves, birds, and other animals from entering into your home. Additionally, screen allows for
fresh air-flow. Most of the screens today are made from aluminum or vinyl coated fiberglass mesh. Mesh
is installed on aluminum frame. To hold fiberglass mesh in place, it is laid over the frame. And flexible
vinyl cord, cold spline is pressed into the grove on the frame.
Like most of other products, screens are also available in different levels quality. Some manufacturers
use low quality materials, which impacts overall screen design, and its durability. These screens have
low quality plastic square corners that tend to yellow over time. Low quality screens have usually
roll-formed frame, which means that the frame is rolled over from very thin aluminum. Such frames tend
to flex and rattle during stronger winds. Screens falling out the windows are not uncommon.
Beautiful screens built to last.
