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.
