What is Florida Glass? Florida Glass is a screening product that takes a fiberglass mesh screen and laminates it with vinyl. The result is a glass shield screen that is commonly referred to as Florida Glass, also known as Glas-Shield. Its construction makes it a great fit for homeowners who want added privacy with their patio enclosure or pool cage. Florida Glass is ideal for using in lower enclosure panels of a patio or pool cage to keep dirt, debris and rain or lawn sprinklers water from getting into your pool area. Florida Glass is an excellent choice for vertical applications but is not recommended for roofing applications.
