What is a retractable screen
Dec 03 , 2021

Retractable screens are what the name suggests – they retract into a slim canister or housing when not in use. They are very discreet: some solutions fit seamlessly into a door or window and become almost invisible. The housings mesh well with the door or window especially if their colors match your indoor theme.

They are also great for keeping insects out, as well as providing protection from the weather. Retractable screens are commonly used for difficult-to-screen openings, such as bi-fold doors, stacking doors, or French doors.

The types of retractable screens available on the market include:

Magnetic screens: Users attach these screens to the perimeter of a door or window using removable magnetic strips. This type of retractable screen is also popular because it’s easy to use in a variety of settings.

Pleated screens: These are similar to their flat mesh counterparts because they use the same track system. However, their pleated mesh is not as discreet as those of flat mesh retractable screens. The main advantage: children and people with below-average eyesight can see – and eventually won’t run into – them.

Flat mesh screens: These retractable screens work using a discreet track system which is either barely noticeable. These come in the singular or double panel variety. The former’s lone panel closes against one side. On the other hand, the latter’s two panels meet in the middle when users close them. Regardless of your preference, the discreet nature of flat mesh screens allows you to enjoy the outside view while keeping pesky insects at bay. Hence, they are a popular choice among consumers.

Why should I get them installed?

· You can enjoy an unobstructed view of the outdoors, with the screen retracting away discreetly when not in use;

· You can screen large openings with retractable screens. No matter how large they are, you can install a custom retractable screen that complements your windows or doors.

· Using retractable screens also helps keep bugs, rodents, and other pests out of your home. These creatures proliferate in the rural areas during the summer months. If you live in a rural area, you will benefit greatly from retractable screens. Regardless of the area you live in, bugs and rodents can carry disease or germs into your home. Worse, some doors and windows have ample space for these creatures to creep in. Using a retractable screen not only prevents that, but you also get to cut down on your pesticide use – a known environmental hazard.
