• Screen: what is it?

    A screen, also known as a divider, canopy or windbreak, is a woven blackout canvas fitted to the wire mesh of the fence in your garden, the rail of your balcony, your gate, around your terrace or even around your pool. As its name suggests, it is used to screen off areas against prying eyes and to protect privacy, for when you do not want to be seen from your neighbours’ house, from the road or from the path. It is also very useful for protecting against draughts and wind. All our screens are also designed to act as effective windbreaks.

    What makes a good-quality screen?

    Our products are made in France, which is a sign of quality, in an age when many companies sell low-quality, flimsy products imported from Asia.
    Our screens are woven with a lock stitch pattern to prevent them fraying, are UV treated and are rotproof. This vastly superior quality guarantees a long service life.

    Choosing your screen

    The main criterion when choosing is how much concealment you want. At brise-vue.com, we offer 4 levels, from translucent screens to total blackout models. Slight or standard concealment is recommended for reinforcing existing concealment (in combination with a hedge, for example), for temporary separations (construction work) or in rapid transit areas (typically by the side of the road). High or total concealment (ultra-concealing) screens are mainly used to separate two gardens in residential areas, or along walkways or pedestrian footpaths. Total concealment guarantees 100% concealment, i.e. the screen is completely opaque.

    The second criterion when choosing is the colour. On our website, we offer the widest range of colours on the market, with over twenty standard colours like green, dark green, black or white, as well as more ‘contemporary’ colours, with a broad pallet of greys (steel grey, anthracite grey, pearl grey, smoky grey, grey-beige = greige), beiges, reds, a blue, an orange and more.
    We also offer a large range of very ‘decorative’ printed screens to brighten up your exterior, terrace, courtyard or balcony. We can even print screens with the photo of your choice! The last word in decorative screens!

    Finally, there is the height. You can choose from 5 different heights depending on the intended use (railing, balustrade, the height of your mesh fence, etc.): 1 m (100 cm), 1.20 m (120 cm), 1.50 m (150 cm), 1.80 m (180 cm) and 2 m (200 cm).
