Invisible Screens: We Have Your Answers


Invisible Screen

Invisible Screen

We have had several questions about  invisible screens.

The first is :”Why are they called invisible?” Retractable screens are flexible fiberglass mesh screens that are enclosed with an aluminum frame that are custom manufactured and fit to your door, window or opening. When  your screen is not in use, it is constructed so that it is able to retract back into its protective casing and disappears out-of-sight.

Our second question is: “Where does my screen disappear to?” Retractable screens are can either be installed on an existing window, door or large opening frames so that they will retract back into their protective casing or housing. In other cases, you can mount your screen so that it will emerge from an overhead pocket for large openings, such as patios, porches, lanais, garage area or commercial applications .

Third question is : “Can it be motorized?”. Bravo screens can operate manually or motorized. When  you have large, wide or tall openings, manual operation can be cumbersome and require more effort. With power screens, operation is easy and effortless. With a TV remote control, a wall switch or activation of motion sensor, you can open or close your screen. Motorization also allows you to adjust large screens partially or semi-open to allow people and pet through, but still keep insects and bugs out.

Fourth question is: ” Can a  disappearing screen be used anywhere?” Yes and no. There are many, many applications for this product. They will fit most doors, windows, garages, patios, French doors, skylights, porches, lanais, sliding doors, folding doors, pool areas, boats and large enclosures. Applications were these products are not suitable are odd shaped windows or doors.

Fifth question is: “What options do I have when choosing ordering my screen?” There are several options. Firstly, you have your choice of fiberglass mesh. There is standard mesh, solar mesh or pet proof mesh. All three provide the optimal insect and bug protection. Solar mesh provides the ultimate in UV ray protection. It protects you, your family, friends and in commercial use, your customers from the damaging effects of the sun’s rays and glare. Pet proof mesh is 7 times stronger and more resilient than standard mesh. It will not tear, rip or become damaged making it ideal as a pet screen.

There are different mounting options as well. You are able to choose if  want to mount your screen on a surface or inside mount. If you have an in-swing door or window, you can out your screen on the outside; or if you have an out-swing door, you can mount on the inside. Finally, you have a choice in the operation of your screen, from manual to motorized operation.

These are some of the questions that we have recently received, so our hope is that these answers will provide you with information that you need to help you pick the right products. Please visit us at Bravo to see our selection of screens.

Folding Door Screen – Great Retractable Screen Idea for Your Home or Business


Folding Door Screen

Folding Door Screen by Bravo Screens

A popular feature that many people are including in their homes and businesses are folding glass doors. These doors are incredible because depending on your wall or door area, they can convert it to a complete glass wall or door. Folding glass doors allow the owners to open up their living spaces to the outside and allow fresh air circulation and the warmth of the sunshine in. These glass walls allow you to capture your views to the maximum experience, as well as give you unimpeded views and enhance the look and beauty of your home or business.

Many business are including these doors, such as restaurants, bars, pubs, gyms, retail store and so many more. Business owners want to allow the easy access for customers as well as a nice dining or shopping experience. Most people want to still enjoy the outdoors even when they have to do errands, run to the store and even meet friends for lunch, dinner or drinks. Folding glass doors allow patrons to still have all of this. Yet, when we let the outdoors in, we not only have the fresh air and warmth of the sun coming in, we also have annoying bugs and insects and damaging UV rays as well.

We at Bravo manufacture tilt and turn windows and doors including folding glass doors as well as the large retractable screens that will perfectly and custom fit your folding doors. Our folding door screens allow you to still enjoy all the benefits of your glass doors, as well as optimal and continuous flowing fresh air circulation, but without allowing nasty bugs, insects and debris into your living space. The added benefit of using Bravo products is that all our products appear almost invisible when in use and retract back into their protective housing or casing. Thus, causing them to be out-of-sight when not in use. Bravo invisible screens or disappearing screens allow your screen to be protected when not in use. So it is not in the way or can be damaged or exposed to weather conditions. Our protective casing allows your retractable screen to last longer and look better throughout the years.

Bravo folding door screens are available in manual or motorized operating options. Motorized or power screens are ideal in this application because of the length and width and even height of the screens. A motorized retractable screen allows you to very easily open and close it with little to no effort. With the use of a TV remote control, you can open,close  or adjust your folding door screen to where you like it. Bravo motorized or power screens are a perfect complement to your home or business because they are discreet, but allow you full insect and solar protection when you need it. Also, they allow you to enjoy all the outdoors, without any of the drawbacks. So if you have or are going to install  glass doors or walls, try a Bravo retractable screen to give you, your family and friends or customers full protection from the outdoors.

A New Twist on Pet Screens : Non-Tearable Retractable Screen

For those of you with pets know that our window and door screens can take a beating. No matter how cute our animals are, some of them have a naughty side. How many of you have had screens have torn or been destroyed at the hands or should I say claws of our pets? The reason that pet screens do not hold up is that they are made of thin screening material, that is not durable enough to stand against such forces. Over time, persistent pet can break through these cheap and flimsy screening mesh windows and doors. Fret not, for there is a better and most efficient alternative – a fiberglass reinforced pet proof screen. Yes, you did read correctly, PET PROOF. No more ripped or torn screens to replace.

The pet screening mesh is made of the most durable fiberglass mesh available. It is 7x stronger than the standard mesh screening.  So strong in fact that smaller animals can even hang from it!  This screen will stand up to even the most tenacious of our pets without tearing or ripping. Another great feature about this pet screen is that they are not just fixed screens, but they are available as retractable screens that allow for an easy and smooth opening and closing. They have no wheels or rollers  that will cause your screen to jump off or become dislodged. Also, these retractable screens have a clutch system that prevents your screen from slamming back when retracting. For anyone that has had one that slams, there is nothing more bothersome or annoying than a screen door that slams back and startles anyone around.

For all of us that love our pets, but do not love the damage that they can cause, a retractable pet screen is the answer. No more will you have to replace ripped or torn screens. Instead, you will save valuable money and time. Now who doesn’t like that!

P.S. – Do not let that cute face fool you! He has mischief in his eyes!
