Windscreens

Windscreen is commonly mounted on fences and is used to enclose tennis and pickleball courts, practice fields, batting cages, as well as, along baseball outfield fences. It is a great way to close off a field or work area from prying eyes and to separate fields or courts from commercial or residential areas. In addition, it helps provide security, eliminate distractions, and blocks unsightly views. Windscreens are an affordable way to promote your brand, display upcoming games and events, and create privacy.
