Safely Exit When Needed: A simple panic bar along one side provides easy emergency egress; however, burglars and flying debris are kept safely outside. Hinged screens should be used on bedrooms and basement windows for safety.
Visibility & Protection: Security screens not only protect from intruders, but the sun too! In fact, the black wire cloth reduces UV rays by 60% and reduces solar heat gain by 22%. These bonus features of the mesh reduce fading of a home’s interiors and lower the cost of cooling the home. Interior glare is also reduced, while still allowing visible light into the interior space.
Most peoples choose to remove their existing bug screens and just utilize the stainless mesh. The mesh provides the same protection from critters, or probably more, as many existing screens have holes where lizards and large bugs may enter. No need to worry about grasshoppers munching on these screens. Ventilation is also essentially the same with the stainless mesh as it is with current aluminum or poly bug screens. In conclusion, the Roll-a-way stainless steel mesh is a super-duty window protection reducing energy costs, reducing fading, allowing ventilation, and keeping out critters, regardless of species.
