Phifer TuffScreen® is heavy-duty, vinyl-coated polyester insect screening that is ideal for use in high traffic areas. Yes, the most common purpose of screening is to keep bugs out. However, keeping bugs out is nearly impossible if your screens are ripped from anxious pets, rambunctious children, pesky wildlife or harsh weather. TuffScreen® heavy-duty mesh screening is made from vinyl-coated polyester, making it tear and puncture resistant, and one of the most durable screen options on the market. It installs just like regular screening but is 3x stronger than standard fiberglass and won’t need to be replaced nearly as often.
