These doors let you enjoy the fresh air without being affected by the unwanted bugs and pests. These doors can fit virtually any style of door including front doors side-entry doors sliding doors double French doors garage-entry doors patio doors and more. With an amazing ability to disappear these retractable doors have countless benefits over a traditional screen door. The best benefit is that the screen is virtually invisible. When not in use the screens disappear making your doorway more aesthetically pleasing as if a screen is not even there. Plus you dont need to keep the area around the door clear for the screen to open and close like traditional screen doors because these screens slide back-and-forth rather than open inward or outward. With many colors to choose from disappearing screen doors can blend beautifully with just about any color or style of door.
While all doors provide some form of security barrier just because a product is marketed as a home security product it does not mean it is. In fact when it comes to home security many doors marketed as "home security screens" fall way short of security industry standards. A point well noted by the National Security Screens Association (NSSA) and the Australian Security Industry Association Limited. So how do you pick a good home security screen door from a bad one? What do you need to look for in a good security screen door? When purchasing a home security screen door there are several features of the door which need to be considered including the materials the door frames are made from grille strength mesh type the number of hinges and the locking devise used.
For added protection make sure your home security door hinges are recessed this will minimize the gap between the door and the frame making the door more difficult to jimmy. The home security screen door should have stainless steel mesh and be attached to the door frame using either stainless steel screws or Pac clamps. The ideal home security mesh is either marine grade 316 mesh or 304-grade mesh. There are several mesh grades available on the market so check the strength rating to make sure it is at least equivalent to the 316 or 304 grade mesh. Users of the different grades of mesh will argue over which is stronger but apply the above check and you can not go wrong.
Another advantage of these doors is the ability to keep insects and pests out. The disappearing screen runs through a brush system that eliminates gaps between the mesh and the track. By sealing the gaps small pests like flies spiders mice lizards and more are unable to enter the home. All these doors are custom-made and usually professionally installed. When scheduling an appointment a professional will come to your home and take measurements. Then they will cut the screen to custom fit your door and install. This eliminates any issues you would have installing it yourself like measuring wrong or installing on crooked or bowed doorways.What are the other places where you can install disappearing screen doors? Disappearing screens are normally installed in homes but can even be installed in offices businesses on recreational vehicles and even yachts. These doors can be installed just about anywhere a screen is needed.
