Please describe the project specifications

Custom hard enclosure mounted to brick structure and steel frame with zip off options.


What was the purpose of this project? What did the client request?

The client wanted to be able to use their room off of the main house all year round giving them optimal use of that area. The client wanted to be able to entertain and enjoy the space regardless of the weather.


What is unique or complex about the project?

Attaching enclosure to the existing brick and the large openings presented a new challenge for us. We needed to make sure our fittings would hold in the brick. With the openings being so large we decided to use 60 gauge Makrolon UV to keep the panels rigid.


What were the results of the project?

Stunning new entertainment area inside & out. The client was extremely satisfied and thrilled with the end result. The client is currently deciding if they would like interchangeable screen panels.
