The Features and Benefits of Retractable Screens

Retractable Screens

Retractable screen doors have been available to consumers for years, but have more widely caught on as a popular option for patio, French and entry doors – especially in sunny, warm southern California. A growing number of homeowners see the value in installing retractable screen doors of their home.

How Retractable Screens Work

Retractable screens disappear when rolled into a door frame. Retracting the screens gives you immediate access to the door’s glass for easier cleaning than fixed or sliding screens.

The screen system, inconspicuous when opened, operate by “rolling” into a housing on the vertical outside edge of the door jamb when not in use. The housings are customized to become another feature of your home and are available in several powder-coated colors that will blend seamlessly into your current color scheme. Securely attaching the housing directly to the existing doorframe increases the stability of both the screen and the frame.

Retractable Screens Fit Any Door

In addition to making a sensible, attractive replacement for an old-fashioned screen door in your doorway, retractable screens offer the best solution for patio or French doors. One screen system is mounted on each side of the door frames and meets in the center. The dual screens are held in place with a locking system and a stop that allows you to slide both screens open and close without effort. The retractable screen doors are easily maintained, too. No need to clean the screen itself, but make sure to keep the track free of debris.

Retractable Screens Offer Energy Savings

During cool weather, you can maximize the amount of daylight in your home, which can offer energy savings. A retractable screen allows 50 percent more light to enter the home when opened, which lessens the need for electrical lighting usage.
