Retractable Screen Doors and Windows
Discover the beauty of ClearView Invisible Screen Systems™ for doors and windows.
ClearView™ screens utilize the technology of roll-up blinds, updated and advanced to work vertically or horizontally for both door and window applications.
ClearView™ screens are manufactured with a durable, lightweight aluminum housing that protects the screen material when not in use. Within the housing, the ClearView™ retractable screen is anchored to an aluminum tube with a tension control device. ClearView™ is the only patented invisible screen system utilizing a “Safe-Glide” Speed Reducer™ that insures doors will retract fully without danger of trapped fingers or a “slamming” return.
The patented ClearView™ retractable screen door system will fit your application for single, double French doors and sliding doors. ClearView™ screens provide a superior solution to any product in the market today.
The exclusive, patented "Safe-Glide" Speed Reducer™ is a hydraulically-controlled device that slows the screen return into the housing, assuring frail or small hands are not caught in the screen as it closes. It provides for a smooth retraction that prevents tearing of the material and abrasion of parts. The ClearView Invisible Screen Systems™ is the only brand offering a proven "Safe-Glide" speed reduction system. Others have tried to imitate it, but none have matched ClearView's superior quality and innovative design.
Questions and answers about retractable screens
Q: What is a retractable screen door?
A retractable screen door is a home improvement product that is attached to the exterior face or to the interior frame of a doorway. The screening material itself is attached to a roller tube which spins on a vertical axis within the assembly's housing. The screen is also attached to a vertical pull bar which rides on two rails and is used to stretch the screening material across the door opening. Once deployed, the pull bar is fixed in place by one or more magnets installed on the side opposite the housing. When not in use, the screen rolls up into its housing. The system can be installed on virtually any single entry door. Using two complete assemblies, the system can also be easily installed on French doors.
Q: How difficult is it to install a retractable screen door?
The installation of a retractable screen door system is not difficult. However, we must recommend that our systems be installed by a certified installer. Installation time depends on whether the system is prefabricated on site or ordered in a pre-cut kit. The installation of a pre-cut single door typically takes 30 to 45 minutes; pre-cut French doors take an hour to an hour-and-a-half. If a system is fabricated on site, you can expect to spend about a half-hour more.
Q: What door sizes will this system fit?
The system can be installed on practically any single door frame measuring up to 110" in height and 60" in width. French door assemblies which require the installation of two kits can be installed on openings up to 96" wide.
Q: When a dealer or certified installer orders a system they will be installing, what is included?
Q: When a dealer or certified installer orders a system they will be installing, what is NOT included?
The only items not included in the individual kits are sill adapters, Decolum (top molding) and bug flaps. Sill adapters come in seven different shapes, and five colors (gold is anodized). Bug flaps are not included because in certain applications it is not necessary. These items should be ordered as needed.
Q: Why use sill adapters?
