Retractable Screen System Details

Choosing a Retractable Screen Door

Not all retractable screen doors in the marketplace are alike. Its always best to do side-by-side comparisons of various product offerings. The Mirage retractable Screen has been built to last:

  • Its guides (plastic parts that guide the screen across the door) have been formed from a space aged material that is highly durable and contains its own lubricant, allowing it to slide smoothly with minimal wear for years to come.
  • Mirage’s internal moving parts have been treated with a long lasting, temperature resistant lubricant to allow smooth movement while preventing corrosion and annoying squeaks.
  • Its central shaft rotates in a silicon brass bushing allowing it to withstand hundreds of thousands of cycles without wearing of crucial parts.
  • To ensure that all these parts stand the test of time, Mirage routinely cycle tests its product up to 250,000 cycles. What does this mean in the real world? Based on you using your door 10 times per day, all year long, this would be the equivalent of almost 69 years of use.
  • Our goal has been to make the best quality product possible with the longest trouble free life available, and to deliver it to the consumer in an easy to use package that fits with the home’s décor.

Screen Door Mesh

Mirage offers a number of screen mesh options made in the USA to our specifications by:

  • Standard Insect Screen is a high quality standard mesh for virtually any door application. Available in Silver Grey and Charcoal.

Regina and Ken installed retractable screens on our 2 sliders last spring. We enjoyed not having our view spoiled by screens all summer. We appreciate their service and professionalism. We recommend them highly.
