How to Choose Retractable Screens?

When choosing a retractable screen, think about the size, color, form, and fit of the screen. Make sure they are easy to use. When purchasing this item, the first thing you should do is identify its intended usage. If you want it to be put on an outside window, for example, it must be able to survive extreme weather conditions such as rain, heat, and humidity. This is especially true if the screen is used inside, as air and water leaks, as well as variations in humidity, can have an impact on the home. If you're going to use it for vertically opening windows, make sure they're not made of wood because the screen will exert too much stress on them, and damage will happen quickly. When it comes to retractable screens, not all are created equal.  

The majority of vendors provide substandard and fragile screens that are neither sturdy nor long-lasting. Other businesses provide screens that smash back into their cases when you pull them back, causing an annoyance.

None of these will be a problem while working with ArcaPro Retractables. ArcaPro Retractables glide silently and effortlessly.

Our screens have been designed to last a long time. For all of your doors and windows, our retractable ArcaPro Retracables screens are a handy and inexpensive option.

When buying a retractable screen, there are a few things to consider

There are several different types of retractable screens on the market. As a result, when selecting and configuring pro retractable screens, you should check for the following characteristics:

Wide range of colors

Wide range of colors guarantees that the screen's aluminum frame matches the color scheme of your windows and doors.


A retractable screen can add value to your house while also beautifying your outside living space. The displays can be tailored to your own requirements and interests. As a result, you should select a style that complements the attractiveness of your outside location.

Retractable screens

Consider employing motorized screens to open and close the doors and windows. Large openings, folding doors, porches, patios, and garages are all good places to put motorized choices. The screen doors with motorized variants are controlled by a remote.

In-built clutch system or hydraulic damper

The hydraulic damper's built-in clutch system may cause the screen to slow down when it approaches the window and door frame. As a result, it will not crash shut, making a loud noise. The screen's built-in technology would not be seen from the outside.

Mesh options

A basic fiberglass mesh is standard and will protect you from any bugs and insects. You can demand a mesh sample before buying. Pet-resistant mesh is seven times stronger than normal fiberglass mesh. Pet paws and claws will not readily shred, tear, or damage it. Finally, a solar-coated mesh can be used to assist in minimizing UV radiation and glare.

Designed for safety

Our screens also have a unique design element that allows the mesh to expand on impact. This protects the screen from harm and prevents damage to youngsters and pets.

Ratings & Reviews

We love our retractable screens and are delighted with the ArcaPro quality.   The job was far from standard requiring custom arch work and they did a great job.    We were also very pleased with the overall sturdiness of the product as opposed to other vendors.   I would highly recommend them.

We are so very happy that we went with ARCAPRO for our motorized screens and awning. The difference in the temperature on our lanai and even in the family room has cooled down tremendously compared to the sun beating in like it did before. We can now use our lanai and deck throughout the Summer instead of just 8 months out of the year. And the neighbors and family are thrilled with the new look and feel of this area. The strength and durability of these products shows in their looks, action and even the feel. We highly recommend ARCAPRO.

We are extremely happy with our ArcaPro screens.  The entire process went smoothly, and was exactly what we were hoping for. Joe was always available to answer questions before and after installation.  We could not be happier with how clear the screens are, while allowing air flow into our lanai.  I would definitely recommend them!
