The Advantages of a Retractable Screen

Retractable screens for doors, windows, patios and other openings offer unique benefits compared to traditional fixed screens.

Block Harmful UV Rays

Retractable screens provide protection from the sun's harmful ultraviolet rays, especially when made with solar shade screen material. This allows you to enjoy being outdoors without excessive UV exposure that can burn skin and cause long-term damage.

Natural Ventilation

Retractable screens allow fresh breezes and cross ventilation when open, and protection when closed. This natural air circulation is healthy and cooling. Retractable screens give you control over ventilation and airflow.

Keeps Out Insects

Fine mesh retractable insect screens form a barrier against flying pests when closed. This allows you to leave doors and windows open for air circulation without bugs coming inside. No more mosquitoes, flies, wasps or bees when the screens are in use.

Extra Privacy

For doors, windows and patios, retractable screens provide privacy and seclusion when you want it. If you want a bit of extra privacy while in your pool area, simply extend your retractable screens.

The Different Uses of Motorized Screens

We offer a wide variety of motorized retractable screens to meet the needs of any home or business. Our screens are customized for specific applications, providing insect protection, UV shading, and privacy wherever you need it.

Retractable Screens for Doors

Retractable door screens provide privacy and insect protection for entry doors while allowing natural light and airflow. Common types include screens for French doors, sliding patio doors, front doors, screened storm doors, and more. Motorized door screens retract vertically or horizontally into housings above or beside the doorway.

French Door Retractable Screens

Retractable screens for French doors usually have two screen panels that part in the middle and stack or retract to the sides when opened. This allows easy access in and out of French doors while keeping bugs out when closed. The screens fully retract into housings on either side of the doorway.

Alternatively, at SPF Screens & Awnings, we offer vertical screens. Rather than installing the housing into your door frame, we’ll mount it above your doors and have the screens roll down over your doors. 

Sliding Door Retractable Screens

Normally retractable screens for sliding glass doors roll horizontally on tracks at the head and sill of the door. The screen panels stack or pocket at one side when retracted. This allows the sliding door to open freely without removing the screens.

We strive to create an easier solution: we’ll install motorized retractable screens over your door that can be controlled via remote!

Retractable Screens for Windows

Retractable window solar shades provide ventilation, shading, and insect protection for casement, double hung, sliding, awning and other window styles. Motorized interior window shades roll up into housings at the top of the window frame, and down when in use. They’ll retract vertically when you need them to.

Retractable Screens for Porches

Full retractable screens are available to screen in existing porches and create an enclosed patio room. The electric motorized retractable porch screens mount to the top of the porch roofline and extend down to the deck or floor, retracting up into a header when open. This provides complete insect protection and privacy while allowing fresh air to flow through your space.

Motorized versions make it easy to adjust the space as needed. They’re excellent for creating bug-free, shaded patio areas.

Retractable Screens for Pools

Do you need a little more outdoor privacy? Retractable pool screens enclose the pool and patio area, then open fully to give unobstructed access. Electric automatic pool screens keep debris out of the water when closed. Motorized versions make these large screens easy to operate as needed.

Retractable Screens for Lanais

A lanai is an open-air patio or porch, often screened in for insect protection in warm climates. Retractable lanai screens are perfect for the outdoors, allowing the lanai to open fully or be partially or fully enclosed. This provides you with more living space in your home during hot months.

Retractable Screens for Garages

Roll up garage screens keep insects and debris out of open garages while allowing air circulation. The screens retract overhead into a hood or housing, operated manually or using electric motors. Screens help keep garage interiors clean and pest-free.

What are Retractable Screens (Also Known as Solar Screens or Roll Screens)?

Retractable screens, also known as solar screens or roll up screens, are movable screens that can be extended to cover an opening like a window or door, then retracted or rolled up when not needed. They provide privacy, shade, and protection from insects when in use.

How Do Retractable Screens Work?

Retractable screens are housed in a casing above or beside the opening they cover. The screen material is connected to a roller mechanism that allows it to be extended down or across the opening, then rolled back up into the housing. Screens can be manually operated using a pull cord or strap, or motorized using electric motors and a remote control or wall switch.

Manual vs Motorized Retractable Screens

Manual retractable screens require the user to pull the cord to raise and lower the screen. This cable guided system is typically cheaper than motorized versions. Motorized screens use electric motors to extend and retract with the push of a button, offering convenient operation. Motorized screens are automated and easier to use but are more of an upfront investment.

Installation for Retractable Screens

Our motorized retractable sun screens can be installed over windows, doors, patios, porches, and other outdoor areas. If you're worried that you don't know how to install a retractable screen, you don't have to worry! Our talented team will handle the entire solar shade retractable installation process from start to finish.

Proper fly screen installation ensures smooth operation and weather resistance. Our professional installation also comes with warranties. Because of this, we don't recommend DIY retractable screen projects. Motorized solar screens require expertise for proper long-term function.

How to Clean Retractable Screens

Here's how to clean your automatic solar shades: retractable screens can be cleaned in place using a soft brush and mild soap and water. Vacuum screens first to remove surface dirt. Then scrub gently with soapy water and rinse. Avoid using harsh cleaners or abrasives. You should allow your screens to dry fully before retracting.
