Additional Information

How does MeshGuard Integrate with Screen Tight?

Both MeshGuard and Screen Tight use the same trim cap piece that snaps over the base that holds the screen.

I have both 2x4 and 4x4 posts.

Screen Tight caps are available in 1.5-in and 3.5-in widths to cover bases that are side-by-side.

What types of screen can I use?

Below the rail, MeshGuard requires a special polyester screen for guardrail infill. Above the rail, fiberglass screen is recommended for the Screen Tight system. One installed, the screens look visually the same.
