Enjoy the Outdoors with Retractable Screens for French Doors

French doors are popular among homeowners for many reasons, including their elegant design, ability to let in natural light, and easy access to the outdoors. Though they may be used between interior rooms of a home, they are most often used to access patios, decks, or gardens. But what about keeping unwanted insects and debris out while still allowing for ventilation and airflow? 

Fortunately, Mirage offers several styles of retractable screens for French doors that can help you keep bugs while letting fresh air in. They are easy to use and you can even leave them open to let in fresh air and create an indoor/outdoor entertainment space.

Enhancing Your Living Space with Style, Light, and Fresh Air

Retractable screens are designed to retract into a housing unit when not in use and can be easily pulled out when needed. They are constructed using top-grade materials like aluminum, fiberglass, or polyester to ensure their durability and longevity. 

French doors are typically made from wood or glass and consist of a set of two hinged doors that open outwards. For homeowners looking to add both functionality and style, French doors allow natural light to enter and create a feeling of spaciousness while adding aesthetic value to a home’s interior and exterior. They also provide a clear view of the outdoors and, when left open, allow for excellent air circulation.

What Are Retractable Screens?  

Manual retractable screens are operated by hand, either through a handle. They are a popular choice for those who prefer a more hands-on experience and want control over the screen’s movement and position. Our manual screens are designed with precision and ease of use in mind, ensuring that they can be operated with minimal effort.

Motorized retractable screens, on the other hand, are operated by an electric motor, making them easy to use with just the push of a button. They are perfect for those who want a more convenient and hassle-free experience. 

Our motorized screens are equipped with a reliable motor that allows for smooth and quiet operation, and they can be easily controlled using a remote control or a smart device.
