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.
The flyscreen has long been a ubiquitous feature of the Australian home. Originally it served purely as a means of allowing you to have your windows and doors open during hot weather so that the air could circulate while still keeping out flies mosquitoes and other insects. However the role and function of the humble flyscreen has evolved over the years and stronger more durable security screen doors and window grilles have now taken their place in the majority of Australian homes. One of the functions of a modern security screen door remains the same - to keep out insects when your main interior doors are open - but they now also serve the purpose of providing an additional layer of home security.
For those of you who desire that their homes be aesthetically appealing safe and cosy installing screen doors on the outer most doors would be a viable and appealing option. This will help ensure that you feel secure within your home while also being able to give the house a stylish look. They are a viable option since it plays several roles- it allows for adequate ventilation ensures that critters and insects do not make their way into your house and also does not allow unwelcome visitors in. If someone who you are uncomfortable having in your house comes by you can converse with this person while staying behind the door. The doors also give you the luxury to draw your chair by the door and observe the world as it passes by.
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.
