Choosing the Best Insect Screen for your Pool or Patio Enclosure


Some insects bite. Some insects bite. Some can transmit diseases, and they can all be very annoying. The right insect screen will stop them from bothering you when you are enjoying your patio enclosure or screened pool. Pyramid Aluminum uses high-quality screening in every enclosure we create. Which insect screening is best suited for your needs?

  1. 18 x 14 fiberglass mesh Insect screens get it. You need insect screening that keeps out the bugs. What about all other things? A screen that is well designed can do multiple tasks. Is there a safety barrier you require? Are there many people around your pool? Are nearby trees and shrubs putting branches and leaves on your patio or pool? The 18×14 fiberglass mesh Insect screens can be used to provide needed filtering and additional strength. The mesh insect screens are tight enough to keep the majority of bugs away, but still, allow sunlight and gentle breezes in. It is an excellent value.
  2. 20 x 20 No-See Screens

Although no see ums is not a scientific term, most people who spend their time outdoors will be familiar with the name. These small pests can be a nuisance. Even if they don’t bite or bother you, their constant flutterings can disrupt a peaceful afternoon. Although an 18 x14 mesh will keep most insects away, small pests like gnats and sandflies can still get through it. We also offer a 20×20 No see screen. This weave is tighter and has 20 openings in each inch of screening. The 20 x20 mesh is made from charcoal-colored vinyl-coated glass yarn. This screen is high-quality and will not rust or corrode. It also prevents insects from entering your patio or pool enclosure.

  1. TuffScreen

A durable and tough screen should resist high winds, pets, or children. Also, you want to make sure there are no visible ums around your patio or screened pool. For this, this screen is the best choice. TuffScreen is a combination of enhanced durability and tight weaving. This product is versatile and can be used in areas that are susceptible to rough-housing, or even rough weather. Privacy is a concern? TuffScreen, insect screens are the best choice. It allows you to see clearly, but it is also densely weaved and dark so it can be difficult for passersby or neighbors to see through.
