What to Consider When Choosing A Mesh Screen

Fixed and Retractable Mesh Screens

Retractable mesh screens are designed and installed in a way that allows them to be unfolded or folded up when not in use. With retractable mesh screens installed, you have the option of opening your windows. You may want to consider these more for use as entry/exit doorways, or for larger windows that you wish to open fully. Fixed mesh screens, on the other hand, do not retract; they are permanent fixtures. Consider these for window areas that do not need to be fully open.
