A screen is a significant extension of the bulwarks. Screens provide some mild protection against green water and weather, though are generally only for aesthetic, concealment, or radar-signature reduction purposes.

Alternatively, small bulkheads placed to either side of exterior doors, or across exposed decks to shelter passengers (or crew) from wind, are also known as screens or windscreens.
