Hema Screen as a side cover
Hema Zip Screen is mainly known as a window cover that works well in buildings exposed to excessive heating. However, covering the windows is not the only function of the screen. It is also perfect as a side cover for gazebos, pergolas and terraces.
Learn about 5 advantages of using Hema Zip screen as a side cover for various types of shelters!
1. Provides privacy
Screen can be used as side covers for gazebos or pergolas. Thanks to it, you can protect yourself from your neighbors, ensuring a comfortable rest. If necessary, the covers can be uncovered at any time to open the space. What’s important – a wide selection of screen fabrics allows you to achieve the effect you want. There are fully blackout fabrics available for total privacy, and more translucent ones that let the daylight in.
During the day, screens with greater transparency ensure privacy, because from behind the cover you cannot see what is happening inside the gazebo, even though the person inside can see the outline of what is outside.
2. Protects against insects
Screens installed on each side of pergola, tightly cover the space. Thanks to this, they can also function as a mosquito net, protecting the relaxation space against various types of insects or pollutions. Thanks to this, you can afford a comfortable nap in the fresh air without the risk of being bitten. This function is very useful when spending time on the terrace in the evening, especially when the light is on and there are various types of insects attached to it.
3. Protects against the wind
The side wall of Hema Zip screen effectively protects against strong wind.
It is possible thanks to the zipper mechanism that keeps the fabric properly tight. Thanks to that, it is resistant to wind of up to 145 km/h. Wind resistance makes relaxing on the terrace more comfortable also on windy days.
It is particularly important in the case of open spaces, where the wind can be very bothersome. Therefore, covering the terrace with Hema Zip screens extends the season in which the outdoor space is used from early spring to late autumn.
4. Protects against excessive sun exposure
Sunny weather pleases all summer lovers, but the sun’s rays can be so bothersome that even its fans dream of a moment of breath in a pleasant shaded space. Screen can be very useful then. It effectively protects against excessive exposure and heating. Despite such good results in the fight against thermal and solar radiation, when choosing the right fabric, access to daylight and the view outside the window is not limited, which has a positive effect on visual comfort.
5. It will cover any space
There are many reasons why we may decide to cover the side of the shelter. Some people want to cover the entire space to get some privacy, others only want the walls on the west side to protect the rest zone from the sun approaching the horizon, which the shelter itself cannot handle.
Screen is a response to various needs – it can cover only selected walls or all of them at once. Screens can be combined into groups, so you can control them simultaneously, or control the setting of each separately. It all depends on the individual needs of users.
When planning the arrangement of an outdoor rest area, it is worth taking into account various factors that may disrupt the relaxation time. Many of them can be avoided by choosing Hema Zip Screen as the side cover of the shelter.
