Outdoor Screens

When it comes to enhancing your outdoor living experience, privacy and protection are paramount. Enter Shades Direct’s high-quality outdoor screens, proudly designed and made in New Zealand. Whether you’re looking to create a private oasis on your deck or patio or shield your space from the elements, our range of outdoor screens offers the perfect solution. Shades Direct offer two styles of Outdoor Screens in either Clear PVC with solid vinyl borders or Mesh fabric, which comes in a multitude of colours. Both styles of screens are virtually maintenance free and will give many hassle-free years of use.

Design Options: Choosing the Perfect Outdoor Screen for Your Space

At Shades Direct, we understand that every outdoor space is unique, and your specific needs may vary. That’s why we offer distinct design options to ensure you find the perfect outdoor screen solution tailored to your requirements.

1. Standard Screen: Our Standard Screen employs a tensioning method that ensures a sleek and unobtrusive look. This design eliminates the need for side attachments or channels, offering a clean and minimalist appearance. If you prefer a seamless and streamlined aesthetic for your outdoor area, our Standard Screen is an excellent choice.

2. Channel Screen: For those seeking a bit more versatility and customization, our Channel Screen is an ideal option. Like our Standard Screen, it also utilises a tensioning method, but it comes with the added benefits of side channels and a height-adjustable bottom rail. These channels provide increased stability, wind resistance, and added privacy. You can effortlessly adjust the height of the bottom rail to suit your specific needs, giving you full control over your outdoor space.

3. Retractable Privacy Screens: With our retractable privacy screens, you can seamlessly transition between open-air relaxation and private sanctuary at the touch of a button. Enjoy the flexibility of choosing when to bask in the sun or retreat to the shade and privacy of your outdoor space.

Clear PVC vs. Mesh Fabric

Clear PVC

Maximum Transparency: Clear PVC offers unmatched clarity, allowing you to enjoy unobstructed views of your surroundings. It’s perfect for maintaining visibility while providing protection.

Weather Resistance: PVC is highly resistant to rain, wind, and other weather conditions, making it an excellent choice for year-round outdoor use.

Temperature Control: Clear PVC can act as a greenhouse, trapping heat and allowing you to enjoy your outdoor space even on colder days.

Easy to Clean: PVC is easy to maintain and clean, typically requiring only a gentle wipe with a damp cloth to remove dirt and stains.

Mesh Fabric

Improved Ventilation: Mesh fabric allows air to circulate freely, creating a cooler and more comfortable outdoor environment, especially in hot weather.

Privacy: Mesh fabric offers better privacy as it restricts the view from the outside while still allowing you to see out.

Reduced Glare: Mesh fabric can reduce glare from the sun, making it more comfortable to spend time outdoors without harsh sunlight.

Wind Resistance: The permeable nature of mesh fabric makes it more resistant to strong winds, reducing the risk of damage.

Each option has its unique characteristics, making it suitable for specific purposes. We understand that choosing between these design options can be a challenging decision. That’s why our local agents are here to assist you. They can provide expert advice on the size, style, and design that will best suit your unique situation. Whether you have a cozy balcony, a spacious deck, or a commercial outdoor area, our agents will work closely with you to ensure you make an informed decision that perfectly complements your space.
