All Seasons invites all questions, are retractable screen doors and “sliders” one and the same?

A retractable screen door is installed in a doorway so the door can remain open while fresh air flows through the screen. Contained in a housing unit, the screen door slides back and forth horizontally along a track. With a quick pull, the screen door easily slides open to let people cross the threshold from indoors to out (and back again).

Many people refer to these screen doors as “sliders”, which makes sense because they do slide from one side to another. But technically, they are known as retractable screen doors. Either way, don’t feel funny about asking for clarification; the experts at All Seasons will know exactly what you mean.
