Adding more privacy to your property is always a good idea, and when it comes to the garden or backyard, a privacy screen can make all the difference. Privacy fence screens can stop the prying eyes of your extra-inquisitive neighbor or the not-so-nonchalant passer-by. They take little time to install and serve you for years with minimal maintenance.
For outdoor fence screens, the privacy factor is often crucial. The screen should provide the right amount of privacy while avoiding complete blackout. The Standard LOVE STORY privacy screens offer a 90% visibility blockage. So, if it’s the prying eyes that you want to avoid, this screen will work fine. It efficiently serves the household and most commercial privacy needs.
The Heavy Duty screen, on the other hand, offers as much as 95% visibility blockage. So, if you need more privacy, this is a better choice. Restaurants and other commercial establishments looking for more seclusion should opt for this variety. We recommend the Heavy Duty for baseball courts, tennis courts, swimming pools, and other athletics-related applications for maximum privacy and high durability.
Construction companies or commercial establishments in need of temporary privacy may opt for the Standard fence screens. These are ideal for interim needs and available for bulk purchase at a discounted price. In contrast, home or commercial property owners who need a long-term solution may find the Heavy Duty screen the better choice.
We don’t believe in marketing gimmicks; we offer what we claim. Our outdoor fence screens with 90% and 95% visibility blockage give more privacy than many other competitor products with higher claims.
The durability of outdoor privacy fence screens depends on two major factors - the quality of the fabric and the integrity of the grommets and binding.
Let’s find out what comprises LOVE STORY screens and compare them with competing products-
LOVE STORY fence screens use premium quality, high-density polyethylene (HDPE). HDPE enjoys superior properties, like higher density and rigidity, resistance to temperature exposure, and UV radiation tolerance. Other than that, HDPE is non-toxic and naturally resistant to a variety of chemical solvents - diluted acids, alkalis, and alcohols. HDPE resists mold, mildew, and rotting. It is long-lasting and weather resistant which makes it an ideal material for outdoor fence screens as it will need minimum maintenance.
Standard LOVE STORY privacy fence screens are made from 175 GSM heavy-duty, commercial-grade HDPE with additional UV and water-resistant coating. These screens last for years under consistent sun exposure and nearly all-weather conditions.
We use 200 GSM, 100% virgin (non-recycled) HDPE in making the Heavy Duty screens at LOVE STORY. The fabric is additionally treated with a UV stabilized compound. This significantly controls the degradation of the material under UV radiation and extends the lifespan. It also prevents tearing, fading, and drying out of the screen over time.
Most of the LOVE STORY competitors use polypropylene-based fabric, which is a commonly used fence screen material but lacks the rigidity of HDPE. Polypropylene (PP) is also resistant to some chemical solvents, but they do not perform as well under heat or UV exposure, considerably reducing the lifespan of the screen.
As far as the thickness (GSM) of the fabric is concerned, LOVE STORY’s Heavy Duty is the best in the market. Competitor products come with a 300-GSM thickness of the binding only, not to be confused with the GSM of the fabric itself.
LOVE STORY outdoor privacy fence screens are fully breathable. Both Standard and Heavy Duty enjoy good air permeability, ensuring a naturally comfortable enclosed environment. They offer coverage from UV rays and heat. The Standard version can reduce the inside temperature by as much as 10-degree Fahrenheit, and it goes even higher for the Heavy Duty.
If you are worried about the hot summer days, opt for the darker shades of the Heavy Duty screen. Colors like black, brown, and blue are great at absorbing heat, keeping the enclosed area more comfortable than the outside.
The premium HDPE material with special anti-UV coating makes LOVE STORY screens extremely resistant to harsh weather conditions. The heavy-duty grommets and their strategic placement give maximum strength to the screens to withstand high winds and bad weather conditions. Our products are eco-friendly and a great addition to any property.
Most of the competitor products in the market are breathable, but their polypropylene fabric is naturally more susceptible to weather conditions, environmental heat, and UV ray exposure. This often results in the fading and cracking of the screen within months of installation. The poor-quality grommets are prone to rust over time, and the binding quality is not good enough to prevent fraying from the sides.
Furthermore, three grommets at the corner (which is the case for every competitor product in the market) are not enough to hold the screen tightly against heavy wind and rough weather conditions, which leads to sagging and triggers quick deterioration of the fabric.
