6 Reasons To Purchase Retractable Insect Screens

retractable-insect-screen1-300x225If you happen to live in or around Brisbane where mosquitoes are a year round pest then there’s a great need for insect screening for your windows and doors. This is especially true if you want to throw your windows open and enjoy the weather in the area where you live.

In these situations a screening solution is necessary and although there are many options, we tend to recommend a retractable screen for the following reasons:

There only when you need it – out of sight when you don’t

This is the main benefit of a retractable screen. The ability for it to retract back into a housing unit when not in use, means it’s only visible when in use.


Most of our retractable screens are made from aluminium which as such means you’re playing your part in saving the planet. Aluminium is recyclable, and more importantly is recycled with the minimum of energy waste. Because it can be recycled, it’s also a sustainable material.

Wide choice

As windows and doors come in a variety of configurations so too do our retractable insect screens. Some are better suited for a particular purpose than others, so it makes sense to seek the advice of a company who can guide you towards the best one suited to the purpose, rather than allowing yourself to be guided by price.

Designer friendly

Many static insect screens can look a little unsightly and can be the reason why many people in areas that are rife with mosquitoes are reluctant to install them and end up feeling trapped behind glass. Retractable screens with their sleek and attractive design make for a user friendly product which homeowners should be proud to have in their home.

Easy to replace if damaged

In the event that your retractable screen gets torn or damaged then the good news is that in most cases all it requires is for a new roll of screen to be ordered. The damaged roll can simply be removed and replaced with the new roll. Most parts of the system can be purchased separately without the need to buy another complete system.

No-one likes bugs

From those that buzz irritatingly close to your ears to those that suck the blood from your body and cause you to itch, it’s fair to say that no-one likes bugs. With retractable insect screens you can keep the blighters out when you want to use your patio or terrace or just want to allow some fresh air to circulate around indoors. There’s really no better reason to invest in a retractable insect screen.
