Screen Features

Different people have different needs when it comes to buying screening. Do you have a house full of rowdy kids and frisky pets? Do you live in an area plagued by small bugs, high winds or strong sun rays? These factors, as well as personal aesthetics or even a desire to cut back on home energy bills, may influence the type of screening you choose. Phifer is here to make it as easy and painless as possible to find insect screening with the features you need.

Not all screens are alike. That’s why Phifer manufactures a wide selection of screening, each with unique features that speak to what matters most to you. Check out some of the features we offer to help narrow your search:

  • Durability – Need a screen that’s able to stand up to the elements — and maybe your kids roughhousing and occasionally knocking each other into it? Look to Phifer’s line of durable screening. Select screening products are infused with Microban®, making them resistant to mold and mildew which can wear away at your screen over time.
  • Privacy – For better daytime privacy on screened-in porches and pool enclosures and to guard against nosy neighbors peering into your windows, Phifer privacy screens are made from tightly-woven mesh in a variety of materials.
  • Visibility – If maintaining a view of your surroundings is important, take a look at our line of screens that offer greater outward visibility. Stay protected from insects while enjoying a crystal-clear view.
  • Sun Protection – If your property is in an area that receives a lot of sun, UV rays can heat (or overheat your home) and fade furnishings. Phifer’s sun protection screening keeps insects and solar rays out of your home — and saves you up to 25 percent on your energy bills, too!
  • Pet Protection – Made from pet-safe materials, our pet screens are able to withstand clawing and pawing from even the most excitable cats and dogs. These tear-resistant screens keep bugs and prevent wild animals like squirrels and raccoons from getting in.
  • Protection from Small Insects – If you live in an area affected by small insects such as no-see-ums, sand flies and gnats, you’ll need screening that keeps tiny pests out of your home. Take a look at Phifer’s line of small insect screening.
  • Airflow – If ventilation and enjoying a fresh breeze is a priority for you, look to Phifer for GREENGUARD Certified screens that improve indoor air quality while keeping your home free from bugs.

Screening Materials

Phifer screening products are made entirely in the USA from high quality materials. In addition to protection from insects, each material offers its own unique benefits. Our screening materials include:
