MeshGuard A new screening system created to eliminate the need for pickets, balusters and other visual obstructions below the porch guardrail.
MeshGuard from Screen Tight is a revolutionary guardrail infill screening system. For guardrail infill code requirements, most building codes require the vertical posts that support the handrail to be installed no more than 4 inches apart. This limits porch railing design options and results in an obstructed view to the outdoors. MeshGuard from Screen Tight enables an open, picket-free design and is approved by building codes across America.

 

Wide-Open View to the Outdoors - MeshGuard can be used in 6-ft x 3-ft openings below the porch handrail to create an unobstructed view to the outdoors.

Design Freedom for Architectural Details - Designers and architects have been severely limited by guardrail building codes. MeshGuard literally creates a blank canvas for new architectural details below the rail.

Seamless Integration with Original Screen Tight - Use MeshGuard below the rail and Screen Tight above. The systems use the same trim cap to create a cohesive finished appearance.

Premium Hardware - MeshGuard is made of high density vinyl, steel and a special polyester screen to deliver unrivaled strength.

Approved Building Codes - ESR-3938 – MeshGuard has been confirmed by the ICC Evaluation Service (ICC-ES) that it is satisfactory to resist loads specified in Section 1607.8.1.2 of the 2015 and 2012 IBC (Section 1607.7.1.2 of the 2009 IBC) and Table R301.5 of the IRC, when installed at the maximum clear span distance of 72 inches (6-ft, 1828.8 mm) between the posts.

Mesh Guard Installation Guide
MeshGuard can be installed on the exterior of an existing guardrail system. If you need to do so, start with removing the screens.
If you currently have pickets or balusters around the porch, you can also remove these from your infill area prior to beginning installation for a full, unobstructed porch view.
To begin installing the MeshGuard railing system, first measure the outer perimeter areas and inner horizontal for precise cuts on the framework pieces.
Next, you will need to cut the framework pieces accordingly for easy installation.
Once the framework pieces are altered to the proper size, you will also need to repeat this step for the galvanized steel pieces.
Be sure to cut away the correct amount for the galvanized steel to fit exactly inside the framework. This provides added strength and stability to the MeshGuard screening system.
Once all cuts have been made, slide the galvanized steel inside the MeshGuard base and begin laying out the framework around the perimeter.
Once the framework is laid out on the outside perimeter of the porch, then drill the fasteners to attach directly to the porch. If needed, add fasteners at each end of the base if there is not one within 2 inches.
After the perimeter has been secured to the porch, take the MeshGuard screen material and spread across the entire screening area.
To roll screen into place, use the MeshGuard flat spline and a Screen Tight Rollerknife to begin the process. The rounded, orange area of the spline will go down into the base.
If rolled correctly, the orange portion of spline will not be visible. Next, cut away any excess screen by using the hook end of the Rollerknife or a boxcutting tool.
Lastly, add your desired cap or to cover and complete the installation.
