Tuffy Windscreen Highlights

ONE OF THE WORLD’S TOUGHEST, MOST DURABLE SPORTS WINDSCREENS

index
Tuffy Windscreen is made of VIPOL® Matrix, a 10 oz. mesh that is super durable because it contains over 50% more micro-fibers than normal vinyl
windscreens. View the complete spec.

It’s virtually tear-proof, and is backed by a 5 YEAR prorated factory WARRANTY.

Edging all around is fully wrapped in VIPOL Matrix webbing and the highest quality brass grommets are installed every 12”. This extra heavy duty edging construction virtually eliminates the nagging problem of grommets pulling through standard windscreens.

Every end and corner is DOUBLE lock-stitch finished to eliminate the unraveling problem of fully chain-stitched windscreens. All of these steps of extra workmanship are crafted into every section of Tuffy Windscreen, giving it unmatched strength and durability.

ULTRA PREMIUM QUALITY YET SURPRISINGLY VALUE PRICED.

Available in a vibrant 20 COLORS:

 

Tuffy® BALLASTED WINDSCREEN

NORMAL POSITION: In calm to low winds, units stay in vertical position. Ballasted PVC pipe is in the reinforced pockets at bottom, and top is attached thru grommets.

STORM POSITION: As winds increase, ballasted units open to allow potentially damaging high wind velocities to blow thru, helping to PROTECT FENCE and WINDSCREEN.


TIE-UP FEATURE: Built-in hook & loop strips at top allow one person to roll up and secure entire unit in less than 30 seconds.

SAVES COSTLY LABOR TIME in last minute pre-storm preparations. Also useful for better tournament viewing.

Finally, a windscreen that helps to protect chain link fences from high wind damage.

Featuring our Ballasted Wind Gate (BWG) technology, PATENTED Tuffy® Ballasted Windscreen automatically opens to allow high velocity winds thru . . .

NO MATTER THE DIRECTION OF THE WIND.

HOW IT WORKS:

Individual 5’ wide X 6’ tall Ballasted Windscreen units are attached to chain link fence only along their grommeted tops, BUT the units are installed alternately on both sides of the fence. The bottom of each section has a weighted PVC pipe inserted thru its entire width in a reinforced pocket, engineered to provide correct ballast to keep the windscreen unit vertical during lighter winds. It automatically opens up to let higher velocity winds flow thru,significantly reducing wind stress on the fence.

SINCE HALF OF THE WINDSCREEN UNITS ARE ON EACH SIDE OF THE FENCE, HALF OF IT OPENS UP NO MATTER THE WIND’S DIRECTION.

Made with super-tough VIPOL® Matrix in 20 colors. Due to its dynamics, it carries no expressed or implied warranty, but … HUNDREDS HAVE BEEN IN USE BY SCHOOLS, GOVERNMENT OPERATIONS, AND PRIVATE CLUBS FOR UP TO FIVE YEARS. This fully tested, patented system is ready to protect your fences.

TECHNICAL OVERVIEW:

Each section exerts a minimum of 15 pounds of vertical vector force, providing the engineered right amount of ballast to offset excessive unit billowing in normal sports-playable winds. When constant wind velocities exceed 20mph, the Ballasted Windscreen system provides a progressively increasing degree of
wind force relief thru a series of opening “wind gates”, those units on the fence side in the wind direction. For winds up to 95 mph, wind force reduction may approach 47%, depending on fence post spacing, post diameter, pipe gauge, and steel quality. With units in tied-up position, the net wind force
on fence may approach 93% less than that exerted on the same fence with conventional fully-attached windscreen of same size.
