commercial-drop-down-screensDrop Down Café Screens, Fixed Panels and Curtains

Drop down café screens and fixed panels can be the difference between a cosy café that people love to meet friends at or a wind-tunnel that people avoid.

Total Cover Shade and Shelter has a range of screens that can provide great protection to your cafe. We have a range of colours but, for cafés, we use predominantly high quality, weather-resistant clear PVC which allows outside light in and views out, or sunshade mesh to block out the sun and still provide a view looking out but not in.

Our drop down screens are easily rolled up when required. We even have automated screens.

We also custom make fixed panels in mesh or clear PVC that act like a fabric window.

Check out our range.
