As all dealers and manufacturers know, window screens are made for the sole purpose of keeping bugs out, not to hold anything in, and any screen can be pushed out with enough force. For FlexScreen specifically, a lot depends on the kind of window our screen is in and who or what is applying pressure to it.
For screens that are sitting inside of a track that is on the inside of the home – as in casement or hopper-style windows - substantial effort would need to be applied by a child or a pet. In windows with screen tracks on the outside of the home, less pressure would be necessary. A screen simply being held by tension alone on the outside of the home would be easy to push out.
We are passionate about educating homeowners to never rely on window screens of any kind to keep a child or a pet safe. Please view our Window Screen Safety Video here.
