With a vertical action, the retractable unit has a cassette across the top and two simple guides down either side of the window. The cassette houses a spring loaded roll of mesh or chain driven system for ease and convenience. When the window is shut there is no need for a screen to be visible and it remains retracted within the cassette at the top of the window.
Hopper and awning window screens
Standard hopper or awning windows and gas strut awning windows are now much easier to screen and far neater in appearance with the retractable screen positioned up the top and out of the way. Pushing the window opening out at the bottom you simply draw the screen down when required.
Casement window screens
Casement windows are also very popular today with both the Queenslander-style home and a lot of modern home designs. By simply pushing out the casements window you can draw the screen down onto the sill. Within the side guides are small internal catches that hold the screen down and in place. These screens are then retracted back into their cassette when the window is closed or screens are no longer required.
Bi-fold window and bi-fold servery screens
Bi-fold windows and bi-fold serveries are very popular, mainly because the screen is not always required. With a bi-fold servery you can avoid unsightly tracks across your bench top because the screens are only three sided and we have a special cassette that runs across the top of the screen and the sides contain the closure catches.
School canteen openings are also very popular with these retractable screens. Easy to use and requiring far less cleaning than a full time, fully exposed standard screen, these retractable screens are far more user friendly.
There are operational parameters to all of these products in terms of width and height. When we measure your windows we will suggest options and then make a recommendation as to the most suitable way of screening your particular openings. Colour matching is also important and the objective is to make these systems as unobtrusive as possible.
For several months of the year screens are not necessary and, with a retractable system, your screens can be hidden away when not required.
