We currently have the wrap around screen from bromsgrove. We've had it for 4 or 5 years and it has done a great job. However, the last year or so it has become more difficult to put on and we're really having to pull on it to get it to go on the bus. Not sure if the bus has grown or the screen has shrunk! Wink

Anyway, this struggle to get it on has resulted in rips and the coating on the inside if the screen has started to peel away.... it's time to get a new one!

The question is, do we stick to bromsgrove and get another 4 or 5 years or do we try rainbow screens, which are more expensive, although they now have a drop screen version which means the screen can stay in place on the side windows but be lowered at the front during the day.

What do rainbow screen owners think of their screens? Do you have any pics to share?

Cheers

We have looked at Rainbow screens on numerous occasions at shows but have yet to actually buy one although that is probably has more to do with the available colour choice and 'options' rather than quality. That said, I have always impressed by the quality of the Bat wraps from Bromsgrove.

Take a look at www.buseyes.co.uk too for some other options.

We love our Rainbow screen with the eyes cheers

The internal blackout blind means it's very dark in the front, which is great.

I'm not sure why you'd want a drop screen bit? If anything, the ability to open either front door without unhooking the blind would be good, but it's no big deal to unhook and then hook it over the window again.

Depends what you're looking for, I guess.

Here's Bumble with her Rainbowscreens on while in France. So theirs fit the Brazibays; eyes and name were extra.
