Pool Screen Repair
Until now, screen fabrics for outdoor enclosures have been limited in strength and durability, needing replacement in only a few years due to puncture, tearing or breakdown from exposure to the sun. The fiberglass screen material available today can become hard and brittle within 3 to 4 years, to the point it can be easily damaged by pets, flying objects like golf balls, hail, tree limbs, roof shingles or children at play. Within 3 to 4 years, with deterioration, a strong gust of wind can tear fiberglass screen to shreds. SuperScreen® provides the homeowner many years of worry-free durability and protection, by incorporating superior tear resistance and tensile strength. SuperScreen® advanced polymer formula defies deterioration.
In a simulated seven-year weathering test, SuperScreen® lost only 1% of its original strength. In fact, it remained 3 times stronger than new fiberglass screen. SuperScreen® fabric includes a biocide compound that resists mildew growth, yielding longer lasting beauty from the fabric. The UV tolerant properties of SuperScreen® reveal themselves in the form of unsurpassed color retention, longevity, and filtering characteristics. With SuperScreen®, extended exposure to the sun will not result in the bleaching, flaking, and fading, like other screens. Fiberglass screen tends to get brittle with age and sun exposure, while SuperScreen® is virtually unaffected – which means it will look newer longer and save on maintenance.
Phifer SunScreen is woven vinyl-coated fiberglass screening manufactured for the primary use of reducing solar heat gain in the summer and reducing heat loss in winter. SunScreen absorbs and dissipates up to 70 percent of the sun's heat and glare before it reaches the window. SunScreen is easily installed on any type and size of window and also performs as an insect screening.
Phifer Glas-Shield is our 18x14 fiberglass mesh that has been vinyl-laminated. Glas-Shield can be installed in the lower enclosure panels (chair rail down) to keep dirt and debris out of pool enclosures. Glas-Shield also functions as a privacy screen in vertical (wall) applications. It is not made to be used as roofing material or in horizontal applications.
