Block Insects and Pests with Oasis® 2900 Patio Solar Screen Fabrics
With the Oasis® Patio / Outdoor Insect Screens and Shades, you’ll get an attractive patio screen room enclosure that protects from both the glaring sun and irritating insects. The screen fabrics used are specially designed to block insects, bugs, glare and harmful UV rays.
The Shy-Zip system is uniquely designed to keep fabric taut and in place, enhancing the functionality of the shade system and making it possible to seal insects OUT. Fabric edges remain in the track, and are heat-sealed to the zipper edge, so there will never be fabric fraying.The bottom rail uses a large, 1″ pliable gasket strip, which is very effective at sealing uneven surfaces on a concrete patio or garage floor, or a floor surface that has texturing or is not level. The bottom rail also seals and protects the fabric edge, so again, there will be no fraying. The system is designed to be durable, and provide many years of service.
Insolroll utilizes time proven SHY Zip technology to seal the edges of the shade. SHY Zip is a product of the SHY Co. Ltd. of Japan, distributed exclusively in North America by its authorized sub-licensees.
Specialized Fabrics for Insect Control
TuffScreen and TuffScreen NoSeeUm screen fabrics are specifically designed to keep insects OUT when the shades are fully lowered. Both fabrics feature very small apertures to stop smaller insects, with NoSeeUm having an aperture small enough to stop the biting midges known as “NoSeeUms” found if coastal Florida and the Caribbean. Although they stop insects from entering, TuffScreen and TuffScreen NoSeeUm fabrics provide excellent view through.
Fabric Choices for Oasis® 2900 Patio Insect Shades
Insect Protection Fabrics
Our highly effective Oasis® 2900 system relies upon fabric design for effectiveness in blocking insects.
- TuffScreen Fabric- For small insects, specialized fabric with the very small apertures needed to stop gnats and small bugs.

In spite of such tiny apertures, TuffScreen and TuffScreen NoSeeUm screen fabrics offer outstanding view through, with 45% and 48% openness respectively.
