Why Pet-Resistant Screen Matters

Many people consider their pets to be four-legged members of the family -- and much like any two-legged member of your family, you want to keep them safe. Phifer pet screening products offer protection from most insects as well as standing up to most household pets.


Our pet-resistant screening is suitable for doors and windows as well as larger areas such as porch enclosures, making it ideal for pet owners who want to give their four-legged friends some fresh air on the porch, without leaving them outside.


Over time, the cost of having to replace inferior screening due to damage from pets or other animals can add up. As an added benefit, screening keeps most insects out and minimizes exposure to fleas and ticks that can cause health problems for your pets. By investing in sturdy, durable Phifer PetScreen®, you and your pet can enjoy nature, without nature making its way indoors to your home.

What Makes Phifer Screening Strong Enough for Pets?

Whether you need door or window screening that’s tear resistant, or are looking for puncture-resistant patio screening that can withstand critters gnawing at it, Phifer screening is manufactured with durability in mind -- particularly when it comes to protection for (and sometimes from) your pet.


Both our TuffScreen® and PetScreen® products are made from strong, vinyl-coated polyester. This vinyl-coated polyester mesh is engineered and woven to be tougher, more resilient and more durable. Their sturdy construction and quality of materials minimizes tears caused by pets either chewing on screening or raking claws and nails against it.


For superior strength and sun protection, our SunTex® 80/90 screening is not only pet resistant but also ideal for pets that spend a lot of time on enclosed porches or near windows. Made from durable, finely-woven vinyl-coated polyester, this screening material blocks 80 to 90 percent of the sun’s rays from entering and overheating your home -- or overheating your pets and putting them at risk of heat exposure. SunTex 80/90 is also antimicrobial, mildew resistant and fade resistant, requiring only a little soap and water to clean and keep it looking new for years to come.
