Patio Enclosures, Inc., the leading sunroom company in North America, was awarded a US Patent on May 29, 2007 for a new, economical product designed to enclose a balcony in commercial and residential applications.
The Picket Screen Enclosure System is especially suited to residences and multi-story dwellings and is the first product of its kind to incorporate an extruded aluminum safety railing into the structural framework of a screen enclosure. This eliminates the need for an additional railing sub-contractor or vendor to enclose a balcony, saving time and money while providing a single-point source for supply and installation. As with every Patio Enclosures, Inc. sunroom product, each Picket Screen Enclosure System is custom-manufactured to fit virtually any sized opening.
Other benefits of the Picket Screen Enclosure System include providing homeowners with a safe, insect-free sunroom environment, while increasing the value and desirability of the property. Builders will like the modest cost, thus increasing sales margins, while offering expanded outdoor living space.
The Picket Screen Enclosure System was invented by Tony Bouquot, Patio Enclosures, Inc. Director of Engineering, and Jerry DeLiberato, Vice President, Commercial Sunroom Products, a division of Patio Enclosures, Inc.
