Some companies require a braking mechanism to prevent the screen from slamming. The downside is if the brake ever fails the door will still slam. The more preferable companies have screens that do not require a braking mechanism because their screen speed is completely adjustable for a safe retraction speed eliminating the risk of having to use a brake. The type of magnet used is also very important. Full-length rust proof magnetic strips tend to be the key choice for guaranteeing a secure and tight closure. Lastly quality handles are essential. A key favorite are screens with metal handles.
They are sturdy and best for any climate as they will not damage or break up easily. Simply because the door shuts on its own as soon as you pass by it will never leave open. In addition you will not be disturbed with the loud boom as it will close slowly and gradually without creating a loud sound. In selecting screen doors a color has a lot to do to coordinate with the style and paint color of your home. Likewise figure out what style you desire. There are options to choose in the market depending on what kind you like. Several doors are available in half screen or half glass.
You can also choose retractable or sliding patio screened doors. Some may want to decide on the retractable ones since it instantly retracts if not in use. Others may consider the sliding because it is not easy to open especially if there are little children and pets at home. There are also wood-framed design but they are more pricey compared to aluminum ones. You can purchase these kinds of doors in any hardware stores home improvement stores or even in online stores at a reasonable price. These screen doors are generally created in quality and durable materials such as wood aluminum and stainless steel.
You can still enjoy high functionality of both bays by moving the screens according to their railings. If your garage doesnt have enough room for sliding screen doors use pull down screens -- just like window shades. The cassette is mounted at the top of the door opening and you can simply pull down the screen all the way to the bottom. My personal favorite is the roll-up screens; they dont use framing and are perfect for combining with other garage door hardware. When I want to have privacy and maximum security I simply close my steel door shut. As soon as I want to work inside my garage I simply open the door and roll down the screen. It also has a zippered opening -- I can walk in and out while the screen is down -- and it is very practical to use. When you dont need the screen door simply roll it up and you are all set; no additional storage space or handlings needed.
