How is VISISCREEN® different from other screen mesh products? 2017-04-26T03:55:46+00:00

Traditional vinyl-coated fiberglass screen door meshes do a good job of keeping insects out, as long as the mesh remains in tact. The problem is they typically do NOT remain in tact. Screen door accidents such as walk-throughs are common occurrences in homes and places of business (hotels, motels, resorts, etc.). That’s because traditional screen mesh products are too invisible, especially when people are distracted due to Inattentional Blindness a/k/a Perceptual Blindness.

Enter VISISCREEN®… Only VISISCREEN® has a patented, visible vertical marker woven into the mesh. The marker subtly alerts the user of its presence without compromising the highest level of visibility and light. The result is that the screen remains “invisible” at safe distances but becomes apparent as you approach it, preventing common accidents like screen door walk-throughs. We like to say VISISCREEN® minimizes liability, while maximizing visibility. “See it when you need to – don’t lose your view!” 

Learn how VISISCREEN® was invented.

Watch this video clip to see how the “Visi marker” works.

Where do I align the marker during installlation? 2017-04-26T03:55:46+00:00

The marker should be aligned approximately 12-15 inches from the handle.  This is roughly the center of the eyes when a person walks through the patio door opening. The patented visible marker is woven vertically into the mesh. This makes it easily visible at close proximity by anyone no matter their height.

Figures 1 & 2 below show the optimal marker alignment positions for the 3-foot and 4-foot widths respectively.


Figure 1 – Recommended marker position for 3-ft. width
