Until recent years, 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. Super Screen provides the homeowner many years of worry-free durability and protection, by incorporating superior tear resistance and tensile strength. Super Screen advanced polymer formula defies deterioration.
In a simulated seven-year weathering test, Super Screen lost only 1% of its original strength. In fact, it remained 3 times stronger than new fiberglass screen. Super Screen fabric includes a biocide compound that resists mildew growth, yielding longer lasting beauty from the fabric. The UV tolerant properties of Super Screen reveal themselves in the form of unsurpassed color retention, longevity, and filtering characteristics. With Super Screen, 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 Super Screen is virtually unaffected – which means it will look newer longer and save on maintenance.
