Insect Screens by Centor

A retractable system for bifolding or sliding doors, Centor screens offer insect protection or shading solutions. Better than aftermarket products, these shades provide the full functionality and desirability of an open patio door product, yet provide privacy and sun protection.

Another huge selling point of Centor screens is they allow the sightlines and overall aesthetics of bifolding and sliding doors to be visible. At the same time these shades provide privacy without obscuring the doors with blinds or curtains. These products are also significantly better than integral glass blinds in most cases. Even better, independent testing shows screens can also enhance the U-Value of the door set.
