    What are people using as window screens in their IPs? Flyscreens, diamond grilles, crimsafe, other?

    Crimsafe seems to give the nicest look but boi are they expensive.

    If your IP's are anywhere near the ocean do not consider Crimsafe.
    They are not marine grade stainless and unless washed down very regulary
    will corrode in no time. ( it is not rust, it is electrolsys caused by steel and aluminium being together unprotected and hastened by a salt environment)
    Other reputable 316 ( marine grade) screens are Invisguard, ScreenGuard, or SupaScreen

    We manufacture security screens and our guys spend a lot of time replacing fairly new Crimsafe stuff.

    What we do a LOT of is stainless where there is view and 7mm diamond around the rest of the house.
