“Could you tell me about your invisible screens, the ones that roll up?”
At Arizona Breeze Retractable Screen Doors, we have heard that question many times since we opened our doors in Prescott nearly 15 years ago.
Although not a new invention, a retractable screen door system is new to many folks who have not experienced the incredible benefits of this kind of screen door. So, what are Prescott area residents asking?
How does a retractable screen door work? A retractable screen door is uniquely designed to be used only when you need them, and when you don’t they remain hidden and out of sight. The screen itself is rolled around a tube set by a spring. This tube is then inserted into a protective housing and supported by a framing system. This system is mounted inside the existing door jamb of the doorway. When you need the screen door, simply pull the handle across the doorway to the latch system. When you’re finished with the screen door, simply guide the handle back and the screen rolls into its housing. We often explain that a retractable screen door is similar to roll-down blinds but moves side-to-side being more “door friendly.”
What are the benefits over a traditional screen door or security door? The biggest benefit of a retractable screen door is that when you don’t need the screen door, it rolls back into its protective housing remaining out of sight and out of the elements. You can enjoy a screen door only when you need it and not have to look at or “walk through” two doors all year long. A traditional screen door or security door is always visible and can be cumbersome to live with. Many folks install a retractable on their front door to gain the airflow into the house without obstructing the beauty of their front door. Many HOA’s will only approve a retractable screen door on front doors.
Why is it important to have a local Prescott contractor install your door? Because a retractable screen door is a “moving screen,” and needs to be able to operate smoothly thousands of times, the installation is crucial. The framing must be installed completely square, and most doors are not perfectly square. The skill of the technician is vital to the operation of this product. Also, support is important – purchase your retractable screen door from a local company that has the experience and commitment of its product and of the Prescott area.
