Mirage’s Retractable Screen Door Commitment to Quality Craftsmanship

Mirage Screen Systems routinely tests every retractable screen. We’ve proven that our retractable screen doors can endure 250,000 operational cycles, which equates to using the door 10 times per day, each day, for up to 69 years!

Each retractable screen door is professionally installed by an authorized Mirage screen dealer. Depending on the type of application, screen door installation usually takes approximately 1 to 2 hours. This ensures each retractable screen door operates at peak performance.

The retractable screen door is installed inside the door jamb or outside the door’s trim for in-swing door application. Mirage retractable screen doors are installed inside the home for out-swing door application.

By installing a Mirage Screen door system in your home we work together to create a greener tomorrow! Mirage proudly supports sustainable design, while the screen system will help cool your home more efficiently for years to come.
