Retractable fly screens can be designed to pretty much any type of door or window.
If you would like retractable fly screens in your home there are a few things you should consider first.
What are the retractable fly screens going to look like?
After all, you are going to spend money in something that is going to be always in your home, so one of the most essential things to consider is how it “looks”.
Think of it as an item of furniture: you wouldn’t buy furniture that you don’t like. Therefore selecting a retractable fly screen that easily blends within your living areas is perhaps the best solution: sleek tracks and slim cassettes and no bulky plastic pieces.
How much area will the retractable screen cassettes take up in the frame?
When it comes to “looks” and blending with the current frames, all retractable fly screens have one common issue: the larger the opening, the thicker the roll of mesh that will be required, and therefore, the larger the cassette housing the roll of mesh.
You should expect large cassettes for screening large openings, and thinner cassettes for lesser openings.
How are you going to use them?
This might be the most significant question in your decision making.
The possibilities on how a homeowner can use a retractable fly screen and all aspects count when it comes to choosing the correct fly screen for you:-
- How often do you use it
- size of the opening
- entertaining area, living area, outdoor and indoor use.
Are they easy to use?
You should assume that a retractable fly screen can roll out smoothly but firmly (enough tension to roll back but not so much to offer high resistance), and to roll back by itself (not walking it back) smoothly without slamming back into the cassette.
We can give you the best possible advice, so that you can choose the right retractable fly screen that will look great and perform well in your home.
