Screens provide sun, wind and rain protection as well as privacy.  Total Cover Shade and Shelter uses clear PVC, sunshade mesh or full block PVC which can all be fashioned into a screen that will provide balcony privacy and look great.  And, when you would rather look at the view, a clear PVC option will do that or you can take it up to the top out of the way. Automated screens are available too. Read more...
