The REIDsteel cricket sight screens are laid back at the same slope (or slopes or profile) as the terrace behind.
The spectators behind it and either side of it can see over it to the boundary. There is no obstruction to viewing.
The cricket sight screens can slide side to side on tracks for pitch changes.
The REIDsteel sloping sight cricket screen is exactly the same height (usually about 5m) and width (usually about 12m) in elevation as a traditional sight screen (though it is of course deeper as it is lying down over the terrace).
From the batsman's perspective REIDsteels cricket sight screens appear the same as the traditional vertical cricket sight screen.
Traditional vertical cricket sight screens block the view of large areas of Premium space. Look at the seats where the cricket pitch cannot be seen. Look at the huge number of seats with only partial views:

Sight screens blow over easily in a regular gale. REIDsteels cricket sight screens can have slats freed, or locked into the open position, quickly and easily at stumps. The cricket sight screens may still need tie downs in a real hurricane but, in the open position, will easily resist a gale.
Cricket sight screens allow an easy change over. One side is white, but in a minute the slats can be changed to black without moving the screen.
For clubs which do not play the White Ball One Day game, the reverse could be decorated with logos, advertisements or attractive scenes.
There is even a variant which, by rotating a wheel, can change all the slats, to show sponsor advertisements at every change of end.
