A New Generation of Protection

Twitchell Corporation, an established leader on the cutting-edge of the textile industry, has created a new, innovative fabric for all your pool and porch enclosure needs. Designed to exceed expectations in solar characteristics, insect protection, safety, aesthetics and maintenance, InsectProTex is the perfect choice for the homeowner who demands the very best for his family and home improvement investments.

Consumers have come to connect the Twitchell brand name with a superior outdoor textile offering. Specialty contractors and homeowners alike who are concerned about a quality investment resulting in long-term rewards will be quick to recognize the benefits that InsectProTex fabric offers. Twitchell's lanei screening fabric exceeds the requirements of Section 553.73 of the Florida Building Code. Our fabric provides more than just a "good enough" screen, it provides insect and pest protection, privacy, safety, decreased maintenance, and debris control. Existing products force customers to choose between mutually beneficial characteristics.

InsectProTex offers them all - you no longer have to choose! You receive more features and vastly greater quality for your investment.

Features & Benefits

  • Durability: The strength of our fabric provides increased resistance to punctures and tears caused by falling debris as well as better protection from pet damage, thereby extending the useful life of the product.
  • UV Protection/Stable: The UV properties of our material increase the longevity of the fabric while addressing health and safety concerns by providing excellent solar protection. Air and light are able to pass through while blocking some of the damaging rays from the sun.
  • Mildew Resistant: Biocide is compounded directly into our extrusion coated yarn for extended mildew resistance.
  • Insect Protection: With the recent health concerns over insect-related illnesses, the tight weave of InsectProTex helps guard against the spread of disease.
  • Privacy: The construction of our fabric inhibits visibility from the outside while offering a clear view from the inside.
