Privacy solution

Everglade Windows has added privacy screens to its range of wide-span bi-fold and sliding doors.

Launched to customers at the annual Everglade trade customer conference, the privacy screens are dual-purpose as they also act as insect screens.

Jay Patel, sales and marketing director at Everglade Windows, said: “From talking to customers, we know that privacy screens are in high demand from homeowners. Creating huge openings using wide-span bifold and lift and slide doors is a massive trend with homeowners choosing the open-plan living lifestyle.

“Often, it’s not until the doors are fitted that they realise their everyday lives are in full view of all their neighbours. Rather than fitting blinds, which can ruin the illusion of an extended living space, our new privacy screens are lightweight, folding concertina style screens that are easily opened and closed. They offer full privacy and also act as an insect screen in the summer months when wide-span doors may be left open for most of the day.”
