Extra Strong Hems
VCP windscreen material is hemmed with Douglas’s 3-ply extra-strong hems. These durable hems are seemed with solid vinyl inserts that are double sewn to 1-1/2 inches wide. The #2 brass grommets are spaced every 12 inches on panel sides and every 18 inches along the top and bottom.
When installing windscreens, center reinforcement is recommended for anti-billowing on all panels that are taller than 6 ft and where strong winds prevail. Center reinforcement allows the screen to be secured to the middle of the fence with tie wraps or lacing cord attachment. All Sport Screens by Douglas® over 6 ft in height include a center tab with grommets. Center tabs on Vinyl Coated Polyester are sewn with 18 oz black vinyl and grommets are placed every 18 inches to secure the screen to the fence. The reinforcement tab is only visible on the backside of the fence screen for a cleaner installed appearance.
