Titan Screen Rooms provide the best solution for insect free enjoyment of your porch. Every Titan Screen Room comes standard with a 3.5” MegaSip knee wall for added protection at floor level. Our hidden connector system provides a stronger and cleaner finish appearance compared with aluminum surface clips or nails that will rust with wood construction.
Let’s see how a Titan Screen Room framed with MegaSips stacks up against those framed with aluminum or wood.

|Screen||Tear resistant fiberglass screen||Standard screen||Aluminum or steel screen that will become brittle over time.|
|Weatherability||Highly Weatherable. Resistant to Ultraviolet sunlight, heat and acidic environments without loss of structural properties.||Average Weatherability. Can corrode when contacting other metals or subject to highly acidic environments. UV resistance depends on coating quality.||Poor Weatherability. Without continuous painting wood will rot and degrade. Subject to termite infestations.Flammable.|
