A retractable screen is an insect screen that can be pulled down or across an opening. They open and close easily, and discreetly retract back into a slim canister or housing when they are not in use. Different types of retractable screens have different mechanisms for fitting either horizontally or vertically. Some roll up with a spring loaded system like roller blinds, while others are pleated and have an accordion style mechanism designed to slide open and closed. The type you choose will depend on the opening and how you want to use your screen.
Retractable screens are designed with clean lines, slim frame and hardware to blend in with the existing surrounds. Combine that with a choice of colours including wood grain finishes and popular powder coat colours, and you have a screen that is virtually invisible.
Retractable screens are perfect for difficult to screen openings such as French doors, bi fold doors, serveries, stacking doors, awning windows, casement windows, and double hung windows.
