Their conclusion is that more damage has been done to American stained glass windows from improperly designed protective covering than from all of the storm damage, fires and vandalism combined. Note: Standard screening has a short life expectancy. Bovard Studios screening material is perforated metal designed to last a century or more. Colors: Our standard colors are white, dark bronze and mill finish. Custom colors are available for an additional cost.
