Block out nosy neighbors

Published May 19, 2007

[Privacy on Demand]
The Privacy on Demand screen enclosure can help block the sun's glare and keep a chilly breeze at bay.

It's fun to relax poolside, but sometimes the neighbors seem a little too close for comfort. Sometimes the sun's glare is annoying or a stiff breeze makes it a little too chilly.

The solution: Privacy on Demand screen enclosure curtains. Invented by Scott Lyons of Zephyrhills, they're made of marine-grade fabric that runs on a track hidden by a valance 8 feet above the ground inside your pool enclosure.

The fabric - Coastguard and Sunbrella are the brand names - resists fading and weathering. You can add aluminum wind poles to keep the curtains from billowing in the breeze. The curtains tie back when not in use. There are two price levels, depending on the fabric: $42 or $47 a foot.

Information at the Web site,, or call toll-free 1-877-774-8429.
