Mesh Fabric | We Don't Sell Cheap Quality Netting!


Cheap Insect Netting? Sorry...NOT Us!
As a point of comparison, cheap netting mesh curtains you may have seen on aluminum gazebos at home improvement stores is garbage! I would rather strap myself to an ant hill and smear my ears with jam than to sell this to my good customers! The thread weight of this is about 70 denier and the stitch is over, under and then heat stamped. Our heavy mosquito netting mesh fabric is far heavier at 450 denier and made to last, yet is still flowy and curtain-like for your porch enclosure. For ALL mesh fabric types, each time a row thread passes a column thread it is LOCK-stitched so that the squares won't shift and it WILL NOT unravel when cut.

Despite the heavy weight, all fabrics are vulnerable to sharp objects and very hot items like gas blowers for gardening or drunk uncle Herman's cigar. Dogs who are chewers will have a fun time shredding even Levi's, so sharp teeth have no problems with our net porch enclosures. Lastly, don't be tempted to buy cotton mosquito netting. While it looks very pretty out of the box, it snags in an instant and mildews quickly. All our products are made of polyester which is the best outdoor material for weather.

No-see-um, or Noseem Mesh Fabric

Only The Good Stuff!
The term "Noseeem" is spelled about 6 ways. The term has nothing to do with visibility, rather refers to a tiny biting fly about as big as a ridge and a half of your fingerprint...so tiny that you can't see them. No-see-ums are NOT gnats or black flies. They are generally found within about 500yds of a large body of water or marsh. Our no see-um netting mesh is denser and catches the wind more. It is a heavier look and needs to be better secured which is why we recommend the "heavy mosquito mesh" for porch enclosures if you don't have this type of biting insect.

Black is amazingly clear to see through despite the smaller holes and is often purchased as replacement screening when folks find they are still getting bit in their framed porch enclosures. It is the weakest of our netting mesh, yet the photo on the right shows our team lifting our beefiest 225lb sewer. We use this tighter weave for many applications other than porch enclosures with this mesh including theater scrims, agricultural netting projects, and filter applications.

Shade Mesh Fabric | Privacy Porch Enclosures

Shade | Privacy Screen
What if there was a fabric that blocked 80% of the sunlight, yet had good visibility, AND doubled as a porch insect enclosure? Our shade fabric is so gorgeous and luscious you will want to take a bath in it. We use it to make porch enclosure curtains and overhead shade fabric. It was our response to expensive stiff PVC coated shades that you could barely see through.

Visibility depends upon light differential. When light is on the opposite side of the shade curtain, you can see out very well. When light is behind you, visibility is poor. On your porch, it is a very heavy look, almost like Adam's Family, so see these photos. However, the effect might suit you as a privacy screen porch enclosure shielding you from nosy neighbors. It is by far our strongest material, yet silky to the touch. The fabric was so well received, we are introducing white shade mesh this season, for girthier porch enclosure curtains, outdoor projection screens, theater scrims and what ever else our good customers can think of.

Customer Performance Review | Hail Storm

Hail Nets?
"On Wednesday this week, we had just left with some friends to go out for supper when an "unexpected" hail storm hit.   We had visions of the roof panel ripped to shreds. All I could think about was having to replace the screens.

We got back home about  2 hours later and to our surprise and "RELIEF"  there were no holes or rips anywhere!!!  As you can see in the pictures, the piles of hail must have been pretty big right after the storm.  It was around 80 degrees so the hail had 2 hours to melt. Your netting is definitely "Heavy Duty".
