MeshGuard Features and Benefits

Design Freedom - Traditional guardrail building codes often limit the design possibilities for architects and designers. MeshGuard opens up new creative possibilities by eliminating the need for vertical pickets, allowing for innovative architectural details below the rail.

MeshGuard can be used with a variety of other ScreenTight products, which just adds to the possibilities!

Insect Protection

MeshGuard provides reliable insect-protection by use of high-quality materials and precise design while allowing plenty of fresh air to circulate.

Premium Hardware and Durability

The MeshGuard system utilizes premium window screen hardware, with components made from high-density vinyl, steel, and a special polyester screen, ensuring exceptional strength, durability and longevity.

Open Views

With MeshGuard, you will not have to compromise on your outdoor view! This infill screening system provides an unobstructed view without compromising safety. MeshGuard can be used in 6-ft x 3-ft openings below the porch handrail to create an unobstructed view to the outdoors.

Easy Installation

The MeshGuard system is not only easy to install, but takes just a fraction of the time traditional picket systems require–with less physical labor.
