To allow your pet to stay indoor while enjoying the view outside, you must install a pet screen at the points of exit and entry. Since the screen must withstand scratching by pets, these are made from some of the most durable window screens in the market. Vinyl coated polyester is the chosen material for its high durability because it is seven times stronger than standard window screen material. Besides, the material maintains excellent airflow and visibility. Pet screens are available in many colors, but silver and black are the most common.

Widow Screens are also excellent for protecting from the sun, which can damage the tapestries, furnishing, and furniture inside the home.
