WHAT KIND OF FENCE SCREEN IS A STANDARD PRIVACY FENCE SCREEN?

If it is only the results, as long as the owner feels that there is enough visibility blocking and can maintain a service life of more than 3 years, it is enough to be called a privacy fence. The reality is that many standard fence screens don't provide enough visibility blocking and crack after a few months of use. This situation is not an isolated case, so it has caused dissatisfaction among many people who do not know the truth, and it is only a matter of seeing.

Purchasing products is a process of selecting the best from the best, and it is not advisable to buy blindly.

  1. Shading rate and visibility blocking determine the level of privacy protection

The mainstream material of our daily fence screens is HPDE, and some products are made of PP, PVC, and PES. They are inexpensive, easy to use, and food safe, and are all environmentally friendly materials. UV-stabilized versions of both HPDE and PP offer better UV resistance, although both are less resistant to UV (ultraviolet) light.

Take the sunny guard privacy fence screen as an example, using 160GSM commercial grade knitted HDPE material, which can provide a 90% shading rate and visibility blocking, which can meet the privacy needs of most families and businesses.

 

  1. Physical properties determine the stability and applicability of the product

HPDE has a better strength-to-weight ratio and high flexibility, it is more difficult to be torn and damaged, and it plays more stable. Excellent breathability and strong windproof effect also make it more adaptable than other materials, standing out among many materials.

 

  1. Chemical properties determine product functionality and service life

The service life of a product depends mainly on the chemical properties of the material. HPDE is resistant to dilute and concentrated acids such as hydrochloric acid, as well as some reducing and oxidizing agents. After special processing, combined with the toughness of HPDE, the durability of the privacy fence screen is guaranteed, and this time is usually 3-5 years.

The HPDE material also has a certain degree of hygroscopicity. Although it is not as good as the special waterproof privacy fence screen made of polyester (PES), it is much better than PP and other materials. Applicability is also much better.
