Types of Retractable Screens

There are different types of retractable screens to suit various needs. Some of the most popular retractable screen options available in Tracy include:

Single-panel Retractable Screens

A basic single-panel retractable screen utilizes one panel that rolls up into the header when open and extends down when closed. These are affordable and great for standard doors and windows. Screen & Shade Solutions carries single-panel retractable screens from trusted manufacturers like R Lang and Titan that are durable and easy to use.

Double-panel Retractable Screens

For extra coverage and insulation, double-panel retractable screens offer two overlapping panels that provide a more enclosed feel. There is less light and air infiltration with double panels. These screens function similarly to single panels but offer enhanced performance.

Motorized Retractable Screens

For convenience and accessibility, motorized retractable screens can be opened and closed with the push of a button. These screens have a small electric motor built into the header that retracts and extends the screen panels at the touch of a remote. Motorized screens are ideal for wheelchair accessibility or for homes with young children or pets. Screen & Shade Solutions offers motorized screens from R Lang.

How Does a Retractable Screen Door Work?

All retractable screen doors operate using the same basic mechanics. The fine mesh screen material is attached to aluminum slats that roll up into the header track above the door frame. When the screen is opened, the slats smoothly slide up into the header track, leaving the door or window completely clear. To close the screen, the user simply slides the handle down, which causes the aluminum slats and attached screen material to retract down and unfold across the doorway. The retractable aspect allows full opening and closing of doors and windows with only the thin screen material present.

For dual panel retractable screen doors, there are two overlapping screens that extend and retract together. Motorized screens operate using a small motorized mechanism built into the header that extends and retracts the screen panels automatically with the push of a button.
