The Screen Tight™ system is a common sense approach to screening a porch or sun room area. The 1-1/2" (38 mm) base attaches to existing 2" x 4" (50.8 x 102 mm) or 4" x 4" (102 x 102 mm) framing with wood screws, roof tacks, or staples.
Pre-punched holes on 8" (196 mm) centers result in a quick and consistent attachment. Once the base is attached, the screen and spline are rolled into place with a standard screen spline roller
. If aluminum screen wire is being used, the SS165 series
spline is recommended; for fiberglass wire use SS175 series
spline. The excess screen is cut and removed. The cap snaps into the base, completing the installation.
Screen Tight™ is durable and weather resistant. It never needs painting, and won't corrode, rust or rot. Re-screening is fast and easy. Simply pop off the cap and roll in the new screen wire.
