Frequently Asked Questions
Our screens do not bind, kink, pull-out of the tracks or break down from the sun. While not intended for severe weather protection (for that, see our retractable hurricane screens), Fenetex screens will stand up to inclement weather and you won’t have to worry about them if left down on a windy day.
(Hurricane screens may require additional engineering if load bearing span exceeds product approval.)
Standards tested include:
