Removable Screen Panels Are They Worth It?

Removable screen panels are put in a screen enclosure and are taken out if there is a hurricane threat. Removable screen panels are normally placed on the side of a swimming pool enclosure. They look a bit like a very heavy duty window screen. They are placed on the middle wall sections of your enclosure. If you have a pool enclosure in a hurricane zone then you may know about removable screen panels.
It is recommended that if there is a hurricane threat that you remove one section of screen on each side of your screen enclosure to allow the air to flow more easily. If you have a fence around your house or close to other houses then you may not need to take any screen panels out. If you are on the water or have a wide open space behind your house then the wind has more space to gain speed and blow out screens.  For more information about when to cut out any screen panels before a hurricane check out the post and video “Remove Pool Screen Sections for a Hurricane?”.
If you are thinking about installing a removable screen panel in 2-4 of your side wall panels then it will cost 3-6 times more than it would cost to replace that same screen panel with new screen. So, as you can see, you can replace that same screen section 3-6 times for the same price as purchasing a removal panel. The removable screen panels also look a bit odd.
Additionally, the removable screen panels are rather heavy and are difficult for many people to lift out or put back in place. It often takes 2 people to do this.
