Retractable screens are a great way to enjoy natural light and a good view while keeping out bugs and other unwanted pests. If you’re considering installing retractable screens at your home, you might be curious about how they operate. Keep reading to learn about how Calgary retractable screen doors work.
What is a Retractable Screen?
Retractable screens are just what they sound like, screens that cover the doorway when you want them and retract out of site when you don’t. When not in use, Calgary retractable screen doors roll up into a compact housing mounted discreetly on the door frame.
How do Calgary Retractable Screen Doors Work?
The protective housing for Calgary screen doors is mounted to the side frame of exterior doors. When you want the screen, simply pull it from the housing across the door opening. Tracks along the top and bottom guide the screen and help keep it in place. Once fully open, a strong magnetic latch can hold the screen in place. Depending on the type of retractable screen you choose, an electric motor, internal spring, or gearbox controls the retracting of the screen back into the housing. This helps protect the screen from damage.
What Shapes Are Calgary Screen Doors?
Retractable screens work well on a variety of door frames including single out-swing, single in-swing, double doors, and custom doors. They usually open from one side to the other, but can also open top to bottom. Calgary screen doors come in a number of colours and styles so you can match your existing door frame.
A retractable screen is a great way to keep insects and UV light out of your home while still enjoying a fresh breeze. These convenient screens are there when you need them and out of sight when you don’t, making them an ideal choice for many homeowners.

Kelli installed my screens two years ago. I was extremely impressed then with her and her skills. I have enjoyed using them since then. This past summer a particularly windy day skewed my screen so it just didnt retract properly. I ran into Kelli at the Fall Home Show, asked her how I could fix it. She was here at my house within 24 hours and fixed it good as new. Wow a one of a kind customer service experience!!

Kelly was on time, explained all of the options, measured carefully, did all the prep work at her truck, installed the door quickly and efficiently, and did a perfect clean-up. Her price was as quoted. It was a pleasure to work with her and have her in our home. Would highly recommend.

Amazing service and quality. Kelli was prompt, professional, and fast! I have a door with a side light that doesn't match up totally with the opposing frame. Most screens from the big box hardware stores require that the side light side be built out to match the opposing door frame side. Not the case with the Mirage Screen. It looks and works great!

Kelli was fantastic as well as her co-worker Antonio. She was very professional and answered my emails right away and had my screen installed within days of my order on Costco.ca. She was very diligent about the quality of the install, and making sure it worked smoothly. She also explained my warranty, and how I could contact her if I needed any help at all. A total pleasure to do business with, and the screen door is fantastic!

Well we finally made the decision to purchase and have a retractable screen door installed. Kelli was across the street doing an installation and I got her card. I did my due diligence and decided to buy from the Screen Queen.Totally professional during the sales process and even more professional during the install. Kelli did a great job and we are very pleased with this product and the installation. Our expectations were exceeded which is a beautiful thing!! Thanks Kelli!

I had a great experience with Kelli, she is super professional, knowledgeable, and knows what she’s doing! I had a door installed on my condo balcony a few years ago and it’s still in perfect working order. Highly recommend!

Kudos to the Screen Queen (Kelli) - Mirage.I highly recommend her for her professionalism, reliability and excellent customer service. I was a previous Wizard Screens customer and was unimpressed with the service.
