FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
Where does the screen go?
The screen mesh is on an aluminum tube that the mesh rolls on. It retracts and hides in an aluminum housing that is mounted in the recessed area of the door or window opening.
What type of paint is used?
The aluminum extrusion is powder coated. We have a variety of colors to match your existing door color.
Can I get a custom color?
Yes, custom colors are available for an additional charge. This cost may vary depending on your location.
What holds the screen in place?
Opposing magnets extend the full height of the door opening and when they are joined together, the screen stays locked in position.
Is it okay to keep the screens in use all the time?
No, we recommend that when you are not at home using the screens, they should be retracted. By retracting the screens, you are protecting the mesh from the outdoor elements that can decrease the life.
If I have double doors can I keep one of the screens locked?
Yes, we insert a slide lock which is designed to temporarily fix the stationary side of the opening. This allows you to enter using only one of the screens.
Can I put one screen on French doors?
Depending on the size of the total opening and the amount of wind a single screen can sometimes be installed on a double opening. The installer makes the final decision on whether or not it is recommended.
Where is the screen installed?
Typically the screen is installed inside the jamb area of the door. By being mounted in the recessed area of the door or window opening the screen framework blends in with existing structure.
