Heavy Clear Plastic Drop Panels | The Competing Version -

Protecting your porch or patio from wind, rain and snow doesn't need to be complicated or expensive. To date, providers of this type of product have been the awning companies. When we studied their products, we found them to us heat welded clear vinyl that had unsightly seams and plastic aprons that looked too industrial looking for our taste. The stitching of their Heavy Clear Plastic Drop Panels was not automated and fastening methods included a metal welting tape that required their professional service (at a cost) to remove during summer months and was unsightly. We had a better idea!

Heavy Clear Plastic Drop Panels | Our Version -

We are about 65% of the cost to protect a screen porch with Heavy Clear Plastic Drop Panels compared to any competitor because we do it smarter. We found a way to make a very rare 20 mil clear vinyl plastic for our Heavy Clear Plastic Drop Panels that is 72" tall instead of standard 54" tall. What this means is larger windows for you and less fabrication cost since we typically only need to put our canvas aprons on the bottom without a top apron. In addition, our fasteners are simpler and so easy to install with just a screw driver and a ladder. Our aprons are either 3unbrella® or Weathermax® for a cleaner natural look though they are expensive fabrics to buy. Best of all, our panels take just minutes to remove without professional services putting you in control.
