The screen protector is a must with kid’s and pet’s. We are in business thanks to children and pet’s they are the number one cause for screens breaking and tearing. One way to help keep your screens lasting longer is the screen protector or what some people call the pet grille. They are good for swinging screen doors and sliding screen doors only. They get installed on the outside of the screen frame and are held on by four screws on the four corners. There are two kind of screen protectors, one is thin, light weight, rattles and usually is very warped. The other type is thicker, heavier, does not rattle and is pretty straight. Another way to tell them apart is the one that rattles is spray painted and is usually all scratched and the other better quality screen protector’s finish is baked enamel which always looks like it’s in new condition. these can be installed by a handyman or a screen company will do it.
Screen protector color and finishes are silver anodized, white, bronze, tan and a couple of others. When installing them it usually is on the outside of the screen frame and on the bottom, if they are installed on the inside they can rub on encasement and get jammed.
They help keep the children and pets from pushing on the screen mesh and loosening or ripping it on the bottom. the standard screen protector coverage area’s is 33 inches high. Custom screen protectors can be made to whatever height you need.
