Fabric Types and Available Options

Primary Purpose of the Screen

Your screen can accomplish one or several things depending on the purpose of the product. You can choose one, several, or all of the topics listed below. 

  • Shading - The addition of a zip screen can make a space more comfortable by providing shading to an area that may be in the direct sun for extended periods of time.

  • Privacy - By installing a zip screen, you can create a space that is enclosed and private from neighbours, public areas, or general foot traffic. 

  • Blackout - Whether it be for a nursery, hospital room, or an amphitheater; blocking all light to improve sleep, ensure privacy and focus, or improve any experience can make a world of difference.

  • Aesthetics - With such a variety of colours and types, you can create a space that stands out significantly while still providing an open-air space to enjoy the great outdoors.
