Putterman Tenn Air Windscreen (9 ft x 50 ft)
The preferred choice of the U.S. Open, Putterman's featured Tenn-Air stands up better than any other windscreen on the market to weather elements and standard abrasion from player activity. Made from a 9oz vinyl coated polyester, Tenn-Air is easy to install and highly durable. The adhesion of the vinyl to the polyester threads is of the highest quality so the vinyl coating will not chip or wear away.
Windscreens are a functional and aesthetic addition to your tennis courts. They provide a dark backdrop against which players can see and react to ball movement better. They serve to break up gusting winds and allow consistent, even air flow. Windscreens minimize annoying distractions from nearby swimming pools, parking lots, highways, and players on adjacent courts. They give courts a professional appearance and increase playing pleasure by providing a consistent background and color.
With today's various windscreen materials, the decision regarding which one to use should be based primarily on cost and aesthetic considerations rather than on wind reduction because all windscreens work well to break up gusting winds.
Another consideration is how dense a windscreen can be installed without risking fence damage from strong winds. Nine-foot windscreens are recommended for nearly all courts, and they should include anti-billow tabs as well as 6" x 12" openings placed 5' to 10' apart. Six-foot windscreens generally do not reduce wind as well as, nine foot windscreens. They should only be used if the facilities are located near the water with very strong winds, which would destroy fences with 9' windscreens attached.
