Fence Windscreens: What is their purpose and how do you choose?
February 14, 2011
What is the purpose of a windscreen?
Windscreens (aka fence screens, fence covers, privacy screens) protect your open dugout area, golf course, or tennis court from wind. Depending on the fabric type, your fence windscreen might provide a fair to substantial amount of wind blockage (see below for windscreen fabric choices). Windscreens have additional functions that make them a popular product for athletic fields, golf course maintenance, and tennis courts all over the country:
3 Important Windscreen Functions:
- Windscreens offer an attractive visual background for outfields and tennis courts. They add a finishing touch that will impress visitors and provide an overall appealing playing environment.
- Windscreens provide the fenced area with privacy and separation from adjacent properties and other distractions.
- Windscreens provide an opportunity for branding. Add lettering or logos to your windscreen to boost school/team spirit, or generate revenue from sponsors.

Other factors to consider in your windscreen decision making process:
- If you’re interested in a windscreen color other than black, royal blue or forest green (for example, you want a red windscreen to match your school’s colors), your options are narrowed to the vinyl coated polyester mesh or solid vinyl fabrics.
- If having the ability to add letters and/or logos is a factor, keep in mind that the vinyl coated products (mesh and solid) are the only ones that allow for printing.
