Share Article

There are many brands of retractable screen doors on the market today but how do you know which one to go with? They all seem to do the same thing? This article helps point out what to look for before you purchase your retractable screen doors.

For years households around America have been installing French doors, which are beautiful and bring a sense of elegance into the home. But, the French Doors all present one common problem, finding a way to allow fresh air in while keeping the bugs out. The look of a traditional screen is just not complementary to most of these beautiful French doors, let alone completely non-functional if your French door happens to swing out. We think we have found a solution for you, the Retractable Screen Door.

Retractable Screen Doors are a great idea, but not if they snap back unexpectedly to catch little fingers (or even big fingers, for that matter). Retractable screen doors have been around for years (as an outgrowth of the retractable blind industry that began in the mid-1920’s). But despite their convenience and durability, they have never really caught on because of these safety issues. Those questions of safety are in the past now.

Today there is a unique new product that alleviates the concerns of super speedy screens that might catch you off guard. The magic rests in what is called a silent speed reduction component. A patented Safe Glide Speed Reducer keeps the screen from slamming back. Older models that don’t have a speed reducer of some kind have pull bars that accelerate into their housings. These older pull bars are also typically made of aluminum and weigh up to four pounds. A child’s fingers in the wrong place at the wrong time could easily be bruised by an accelerating retractable screen. The Safe Glide system, on the other hand, causes the pull bar to decelerate into it’s housing when released from its fastener. In other words, it increases the length of time it takes for the screen to retract. Tests show a closure rate three to four times slower than the industry average

And because they automatically (and safely) return to a taught position after use (or misuse), they provide excellent durability. So in addition to providing finger protection, the Clear View Retractable Screen System provides exceptional quality and value that will last. These speed reducers will last a lifetime because they were specifically designed for heavy usage. After all, we can’t forget how much we abuse these vulnerable aspects of our homes. Just imagine – you’ll never have to shout, “Close that screen door!” or “Don’t slam the door!” or “Watch your fingers!” every time you see the kids race for the door. Beauty, peace of mind, durability, safety… these screen doors have everything you’re looking for. They can be used on practically any single, arcadia or double doorframe up to 98” high and 96” wide. They can also be mounted on just about any window frame. It’s the solution for which you’ve been waiting.

Classic Home Improvement Products, Inc. offers this unique Clear View Retractable Screen System –the only one of its kind with the unique patented speed reduction design.
