What is a retractable screen & Why is ClearView the best?

Retractable Screen

We are primarily known for our unique speed reducer. It’s one of the reasons that made us the premier product in the industry for over the past two decades. It’s not an option and it comes standard in every door, it’s why we’re known as the screen that does not snap back. It provides for a smooth retraction that prevents tearing of the material and abrasion of parts. The ClearView Retractable Screen is the only brand offering a proven “Slow-Close” speed reduction system. Others have tried to imitate it, but none have matched ClearView’s superior quality and innovative design.

It’s not that feature alone. Our fully enclosed housing increases overall strength, keeps debris from getting in, and also aids in a more aesthetically pleasing experience versus looking at black screen rolled up behind the face of the housing.  This is important for inside the casing installs, which tend to be the more popular option. Precision and quality can only be achieved through our great American extruders and powder coaters as well. Unlike the competition, we are truly Manufactured in America!

Sliding Patio Door Screens

Are you tired of having to fight your patio screen door? Does it constantly drive you crazy falling off the track? Replace it with a ClearView Retractable Screen and you’ll never have to fight it again! Have an unusual sized door, or a very tall door? No problem – we can put a ClearView Retractable Screen Door on a patio door up to 10 feet tall and almost 12 feet wide. For doors larger than this, We can use a Motorized PowerScreen up to 25 feet! Backed by our lifetime warranty, ClearView Retractable Screens will never fall apart on you. Unlike a traditional sliding screen, ClearView Retractable Screens are tucked out of way when not in use.

You’ll never look through both screen and glass ever again when you’re patio door is closed, so is the retractable screen. When you open your patio door, the screen pulls out. This has the added effect of keeping your glass virtually dirt free. You see, a sliding screen door is exposed to the dirt, wind, and rain 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. Once it gets dirty, wind and rain push the dirt onto your glass doors. ClearView Retractable Patio Screen Doors are tucked into their housing when not in use – meaning they never get as dirty, and they never blow dirt onto your patio door!
