Wouldn't it be nice if you could open up your living room to the fresh outdoor breezes without inviting flies and mozzies in? Flyscreens on windows and sliding doors help, but they are not really big enough to do the job effectively. Wind resistant retractable screens give you all the advantages of conventional flyscreens, with none of their disadvantages.
Instead of being enclosed in a rigid frame, retractable screens retract into a compact housing. A single retractable screen can be as wide as 3 metres, while a double screen unit can span 6 metres. Unlike conventionally framed sliding screen doors, when retracted, retractable screens take up very little vertical or horizontal space.
What Are Wind Resistant Retractable Screens?
The wind resistant retractable screen is an innovative type of retractable screen that solves the problem of "blow out." In order for a screen to be retractable, it cannot have a totally rigid framework. Because it covers such a wide area, winds can put a great deal of pressure on the screen. Wind resistant retractable screens are a combination of a stronger mesh with a mesh-to-track retention system that holds the screen firmly in place even if a "southerly buster" suddenly comes out of nowhere.
Where Can Wind Resistant Retractable Screens Be Used?
In a word, wind resistant retractable screens can be used anywhere:
- Enclose your entire patio with screens or retract them as you like, for a more open patio. Because they cut out 50% of UV rays, they can double as shade screens, too.
- Bifold doors are a great way to open up your living room to your patio or back yard. The addition of wind resistant retractable screens make bifolds the ideal way to bring the outdoors into your home.
- If you like to work in your garage, but don't like sharing your garage workshop with flies and mosquitoes, install a retractable garage screen door.
Wind resistant retractable screens are not just for screening large openings, either. There are times when you want to open your windows, but don't want them to be screened. Retractable screens are the stylish and practical way to screen your windows.
If you're unhappy with your current flyscreens or are looking for an effective way to screen a large enclosure, look into wind resistant retractable screens. They come in designer colours and can be custom fitted to suit your needs, so there is virtually no place they can't be used.
