Choosing the Best Insect Screen for your Pool or Patio Enclosure

Choosing the Best Insect Screen for your Pool or Patio Enclosure

Some insects bite. Others sting. Many can carry diseases and all of them can be incredibly annoying. If you want to stop bugs from bugging you while you’re spending time in your screened pool or patio enclosure, selecting the right insect screen is a must. At Dulando Screen & Awning, we use high-quality screening from Phifer in every custom enclosure that we build. Which Phifer insect screen best suits your needs?

1. 18 x 14 Fiberglass Mesh Insect Screens
We get it. You want insect screening that will keep out bugs. But what about everything else? A well-designed screen can multitask. Do you need a safety barrier? Is there a lot of activity around your pool? Do nearby trees and shrubs shower your pool or patio area with bits of branches and leaves? Phifer’s 18 x 14 Fiberglass Mesh Insect Screens can provide both necessary filtering and extra strength. Phifer’s mesh insect screen is tight enough to keep most bugs at bay while still allowing sunshine and gentle breezes in. Available in charcoal and silver gray, this product is a popular choice that delivers fantastic value.

2. 20 x 20 No See Um Screens
No see ums may not be a scientific name, but most people who spend time outside will know exactly what they are when you use the term. These tiny pests are an outsize nuisance and can ruin a relaxing afternoon even when they don’t bite. While an 18 x 14 mesh will deter most insects, no see ums, gnats, sand flies and other little pests can sometimes slip through it. That’s why Phifer offers a 20 x 20 No See Um Screen. This tighter weave has 20 openings into each linear inch of screening. The 20 x 20 mesh is a charcoal colored vinyl-coated glass yarn. The result is a top-quality screen that will not rust, corrode or stain. Plus, it bars the entry of even tiny bugs without impeding your view of the world outside your pool or patio enclosure.

3. TuffScreen® No See Ums
You want a durable, hard-wearing screen that won’t flinch at high winds, active kids or curious pets. You also want to keep no see ums on the outside of your screened pool or patio enclosure. There’s a Phifer screen for that. TuffScreen No See Ums combines enhanced durability with a tight weave. This versatile product is perfect for areas where there’s a risk of rough-housing or rough weather. Is privacy a concern? Then you definitely want TuffScreen® No See Ums insect screen. While it allows you to see out, it’s dense weave and black color make it harder for your neighbors or passersby to see in.

Regardless of the type of patio enclosure you want, Phifer has a screen for it.
