MeshGuard is a revolutionary guardrail infill screening system.
For guardrail infill code requirements, most building codes require the vertical posts that support the handrail to be installed no more than 4 inches apart. This limits porch railing design options and results in an unobstructed view to the outdoors. MeshGuard from Screen Tight enables an open, picket-free design and is approved by building codes across America. MeshGuard is the first guardrail infill screen system approved by building codes. Installation is easy and takes a fraction of the time over installing pickets. Must use all MeshGuard components to meet building codes, including: Screen Tight Cap, MeshGuard Base, MeshGuard Steel Strip, MeshGuard Screen Material, MeshGuard Flat Safety Spline and MeshGuard Self-Drilling Screw.  

MeshGuard Features & Benefits
Wide-Open View to the Outdoors
MeshGuard can be used in 6-ft x 3-ft openings below the porch handrail to create an unobstructed view to the outdoors.
Design Freedom for Architectural Details
Designers and architects have been severely limited by guardrail building codes. MeshGuard literally creates a blank canvas for new architectural details below the rail.
Premium Hardware
MeshGuard is made of high density vinyl, steel and a special polyester screen to deliver unrivaled strength.
Seamless Integration with Original Screen Tight
Use MeshGuard below the rail and Screen Tight above. The systems use the same trim cap to create a cohesive finished appearance.
