Screens

SCREENS:
Tashman’s manufactures window screens in many types and sizes.
The important thing about screens is they must fit tight.  Bugs can get in the smallest of spaces, so at Tashman’s accurate measurements are essential.

 

SCREEN FRAMES:
The beginning of every screen is a strong frame, to ensure a good fit.
We make screen frames to fit every type of window, color and configuration.
White, bronze, aluminum, tan, and even powder coated custom colors are available.
We use only the strongest frame materials to make sure your screen will not bend:  standoff frame, extruded, curved,  1” , 7/16,5/16,1/4, are just a few the many frames we have available.

SCREEN MESH:

Screen mesh is available is many designs and styles.
Fiberglass screen mesh is the most popular screen mesh used today. Fiberglass mesh has the best visibility, it stays cleaner and does not rust like many other types of mesh.  It comes in two standard colors:  charcoal and gray.
Aluminum mesh is stronger than fiberglass mesh.  It comes in bright aluminum, charcoal, and black.  Aluminum mesh is the old traditional screen mesh used in the past, it is not as popular due to the fact is oxidizes and corrodes much faster, therefore reducing visibility through the screen.  However, for wood screen doors or screens it holds better when stapled.

PET SCREEN:

Pet screen is a great innovation in the screen industry. It offers pet owners a tough mesh that does not tear easily, and is not as industrial looking as a grill or steel mesh.  Pet screen offers durable, long lasting screen protection from cats that climb and dogs that scratch or jump on the doors and windows.

SOLAR SUN SCREEN:

Solar sun screen is very popular for windows that have south or west facing windows. It comes in several colors and shading factors for more or less sun protection.

ALARM SCREENS:

Alarm screens are used with your existing or new alarm system. Alarm screens offer you the option of keeping your windows open, while still protecting your home or business.  Alarm screens allow the cool breezes through, but not the criminals.

GALVANIZED SCREEN MESH:

Galvanized screen mesh (or hardware cloth) is a very strong mesh.  It is primarily used for protection from rodents and bees. 1/8” mesh is the code in Los Angeles for all foundation and dormer (vent) screens.

GLASSINE:

Glassine is a clear plastic used as a storm screen to add extra insulation to windows that are leaky or energy inefficient.  It is also used on patio enclosures to keep them warm in the winter or keep out the rain and dirt.

SCREEN CLIPS AND ACCESSORIES:

Screen clips and accessories are an important part of every screen.  Being able to attach and reattach the screen is critical to the maintenance of the screen and window.  Tashman’s will provide you with the best method of attaching your screens.

ROLLAWAY SCREENS:

Rollaway screens are designed to be used with outswing casement windows and any other kind of window with a deep window jamb.  Many times they are installed in steel casement windows built in home in the early 1920’s and 1930’s.
Many of the original screens were recessed into the wall so they would not be seen or interfere with the window operation when they were not needed. Most rollaway screens are made from bronze screen mesh that is rolled onto a spring tensioned roller in an encased steel box. When the screen is pulled down it is locked into position with a spring.

Today rollaway screens are made very similarly to those of the past.  However they now have fiberglass mesh in addition to the bronze mesh.  Rollaway screens can also be made to attach to new vinyl sliding, casement, and single hung windows to eliminate the need for traditional framed screens.  The main advantage to all rollaway screens is they “disappear” when not in use, thus increasing the view through the window.
