Retractable Screen Doors are screen doors covered by roll-up blinds that open either vertically or horizontally.
Most blinds are covered by a durable, lightweight material to protect the screen when it isn’t being used. Some retractable screens are attached to an aluminum tube, as well as a tension control device or clutch system. These allow the screen to retract safely without rolling up too quickly. Additionally, speed reducer mechanisms can be purchased separately, which protect fingers when opening and closing Retractable Screen Doors and also avoid the slamming noise.
Retractable screen doors are not designed to provide security or barriers of entry for either people or pets.
Advantages of these screen doors are that the blinds protect the door, and they are safe and easy to use. The screen is out of sight, safe and secure when not in use, as the blinds roll up. Retractable Screen Doors are adjustable for different heights, and the speed and tension involved in rolling up the blinds are adjustable as well.
Retractable screens can be used regardless of if the doorknob is on the right or left side, and the screens come in a variety of colors and styles. Retractable screen systems fit almost any kind of doors, such as standard front or back doors, doors that swing either in or out, double French doors and sliding patio doors. To use retractable screen doors, use your foot to push down on the bottom bar handle. This will open the pull-down retractable screen. When the doors are out of season, the tabs on the mounting clips can be pressed to remove the screen.
