Pittsburgh, PA (October 27, 2020)—FlexScreen, manufacturer of the world’s first and only flexible window screen, has announced today their new strategic partnership with Saint-Gobain ADFORS, leading international manufacturer of high-performance construction and industrial materials. This global partnership grants Saint-Gobain ADFORS exclusive rights to sell FlexScreen products within the retail and dotcom channels.
FlexScreen, the ‘Shark Tank’ winning industry disruptor, is innovative in design, strength, and ease. Built with high-performance spring steel and damage-resistant frames, FlexScreen offers residential and commercial consumers the most efficient and effective method for installing window screens. Free of attachment hardware, FlexScreen eliminates the struggles associated with installing traditional screens, which often cause bent aluminum, scratched paint, and broken hardware.
“We are thrilled to join arms with Saint-Gobain and deliver our award-winning products to more residential and commercial consumers across the globe,” remarked Joe Altieri, President & CEO of FlexScreen. “We recognize Saint-Gobain’s outstanding international market reputation, and are excited for the opportunity to expand FlexScreen together in partnership.”
“Due to the current pandemic, we are seeing a huge spike in the dot.com channel and an increase in construction product sales as more people are doing home improvement projects. Our partnership with FlexScreen came at a perfect time as it aligns with our core business strategy and meets the current dot.com demand,” said Jim Griffin, Sales & Marketing Director for Saint-Gobain ADFORS. “Combining FlexScreen’s revolutionary product and innovative spirit with our long history in the insect screen business will undoubtedly bring significant benefits to all of our customers,” Griffin stated.
As the CDC continues to recommend opening windows for proper ventilation of both residential and commercial properties, window screens increasingly play a significant role in the safe reopening of the world’s brick and mortar economy. By partnering with Saint-Gobain, FlexScreen will continue to empower a new generation of infrastructure that is award-winning, safe, cost-friendly, and backed by science to provide effortless installation, beautiful invisibility, and simplistic design.

Everyone knows that the century-old technology of traditional window screens is loaded with problems. Flimsy aluminum frames that damage easily, scratched paint, complicated hardware, and frustrating installation and removal are just some of the issues that required a solution. So, we cleared out a workspace in the garage and invented FlexScreen - the world’s first and only flexible window screen. No aluminum, no paint, no hardware, and no hassle. Just flex our high-performance, PVC coated spring steel frame, slide it into the window screen pocket (where it will virtually disappear), and enjoy the uninterrupted view. FlexScreen is innovative, effortless, durable, and beautiful. Welcome to the future of window screens!
FlexScreen was the recipient of the Most Innovative Window Component in 2015 presented by Window & Door® magazine, and was a top 3 contender in the 2020 Edison Awards “Consumer Goods - Home Solutions” category, earning the Silver award. To learn more, visit www.flexscreen.com.
