Privacy Screens For Porch & Patio Curtains for Privacy, Shade & Insect Protection
Privacy Screens With One Way Visibility?
Ever thought it would be nice to keep prying eyes off you while outdoors? We offer very large custom-made black privacy mesh curtains up to 10ft tall x any width. Our Privacy Curtains allow you to see out while obscuring visibility from those on the outside looking in.
In addition to privacy, this mesh will block sun and insects as well. This is a stunningly gorgeous material that is silky and black like a race horse. If you would like to see a sample, please email us and ask to see other fabrics as well so you can see what is right for you.
Curtains attach either with an overhead tracking system that enables you to slide from side to side, or by a fixed attachment using a combination of marine snaps and Velcro®. If you like we can show you how to create a Roman shade. Follow these 7 steps where you will learn how everything works and plan your order (select Shade/Privacy for mesh type).
How The Mesh Creates Privacy?
The effect comes from both our unique fabric and light differential. Imagine looking out a screened window on a sunny day. The screens are barely noticeable. However, it is much different when you are on the outside trying to look in. We've all seen someone cupping their hands around their eyes to improve visibility looking into a screened window offering some window privacy.
Black Shade/Privacy Screen Fabric
Our Shade screen curtains have a much heavier look than our mosquito mesh curtains and some might say your porch might look dark like the Adam's Family, however only BLACK will maximize clarity.
New Cocoa Brown Shade / Privacy Curtains
With White being too bright and opaque to see through and black being clearest but, to some, too oppressive looking, we've introduced a new coca brown shade mesh.
It is not as clear to see through but offers a bit more privacy than black. We offer this new color in May 2016.

inside or outside of the mesh!
What if Interior Light is Stronger?
Your intuition is correct and privacy is reduced due to interior lighting, but there is an easy solution! Simply shine a flood light on the exterior side of the curtain, preferably at a sharp oblique angle and an outsider's visibility is significantly reduced to almost zero.
The only way to create a complete privacy screen is with perfectly opaque fabric curtains or blinds, but few of us want to live in a cocoon, especially while out on a porch. But that's not all! Unlike many privacy screens, our attachment methods are designed to create a seal against annoying biting insects that hunt you and your family.
Do You Carry White?
We have introduced this white version of privacy screens mainly for clients who want to project movies outdoors, though it will also block sun and insects. While the material is seductively gorgeous, when the sun hits them, they glow like a light bulb and are almost opaque to see through. In addition, you may want to consider how fast they might soil. While they are washable, ask mama how much she relishes doing laundry. This is a new color for us and we have purposely left it off the store page so that we can talk to you about the qualities before ordering.
