Our retractable screens are smooth, safe and effortless to operate and when not in use the insect mesh is safely stowed away in a protective housing that keeps the netting clean and protected from damage.

Frequently Asked Questions

Can I choose which direction the window or door screen slides?

Yes. The Monarch and Foldaway series are horizontally operated screens intended for doors. The Visionair and Ez Screen series operate both horizontally and vertically across windows.

Can they be stopped at any point along the opening?

Due to the unique tensioning system, the screens can stop at any position – except for one version of the Ez Screen that recoils. There is no braking system or excessive force required to operate or stop these screens.

What is the maximum size I can get in a retractable screen?

The Monarch Maxi and Foldaway is a multi-panel pleated screen designed to fit a maximum height of 2.7 metres and up to 9 metres wide. The Monarch Ex can cover an opening of up to 4 metres wide by 2.7 metres high in a double cassette configuration or a maximum of 2 metres wide by 2.7 metres high in a single cassette configuration. The Visionair and Ez Screen are intended for smaller areas like windows.

Do these screens have a bottom track to step over?

No. This is a big point of difference. The bottom track is flat on all our door screens.

What sort of wind resistance do the screens have?

Pleated screens generally have a much higher resistance to winds than rollaway screens because pleats can stretch. In addition, specifically designed clips hold the mesh in place with cords running across the net restraining it and resisting blowouts.

If the mesh stretches or becomes loose can I tighten it?

Yes, but only on the pleated systems. The installation and maintenance instructions show how to tension the mesh; it is not difficult and only takes a few minutes.

Can I install the Screen myself?

We recommend that a professional installer be engaged to install the screen. However, the Ez Screen is intended for installation by anyone who is handy with tools.

Ventilation is important for health and wellbeing but how hard is this to accomplish when all the bugs are getting in? Retractable insect screens safeguard you from bugs allowing entry of fresh air.

Covers large and small openings

Size makes no difference for these retractable screens. Whether it is a large bi-fold door, a small window or a full patio enclosure, all can be protected.

Different openings require distinct approaches. On doors, horizontal side-to-side action is usually best, but many windows require up and down vertical operation.
