Most Innovative Manufacturing Process

The Process

New to the market in September 2021, FlexScreen Lite is a more economical version of FlexScreen that is geared toward price-sensitive, large-volume, standard-size windows for new construction.

The FlexScreen Lite manufacturing process includes custom machinery and patented processes that come together to create a PVC-coated round wire, flexible window screen frame. Just like a regular FlexScreen, the mesh on FlexScreen Lite is vinyl-welded to the frame.

Boasting all of the same benefits as a regular FlexScreen, FlexScreen Lite offers a more economical price point to make the product more accessible on a larger scale.
