MeshGuard Screening System

Enjoy an Open, Unobstructed View

MeshGuard from Screen Tight is an alternative to pickets & balusters.

Most building codes require the vertical guards that support the handrail to be installed no more than 4 inches apart. The intent is safety but the result is often a design challenge for architects and a obstructed view for homeowners. MeshGuard enables an open, picket-free design and is approved by building codes across America.
