Retractable Screens

A retractable vertical drop awning screen is a flexible screen that retracts and rolls up into a housing (a.k.a a cassette box) attached to the inside or outside of a window or around the windows on a french door or any other square or rectangular opening such as that on sides of gazebos and pergolas.

What are the benefits of retractable drop screens?

Unlike traditional fixed or permanent screens, retractable vertical drop awning screens remain out of sight until they are needed. As stated above, they retract into discrete housings when not in use which preserves your views as well as your home’s décor. In addition, retractable screens are used for privacy, rain protection, sun/UV/heat/glare protection as well as bug protection.

How do outside drop screens work?

A roll down awning can be operated (raised and lowered) using a detachable crank or a motor. Motorization provides the ultimate in customer convenience.

How much do Vertical Drop Screens cost?

Pricing for vertical drop screens is based on the width and drop of the opening being covered as well as the fabric type that is used and if the vertical drop screens will be manually operated or motorized. For a quote, based on your needs, please contact Retractableawnings.com here.

Are retractable drop screens easy to install?

Vertical drop screens are probably our easiest product to install. You simply attach the brackets either inside or outside the opening then click the header cassette box on to the brackets. Once that is done, but you attach the vertical side channels either inside or outside the opening and that is it! Simple, right?

How easy are vertical drop awnings to clean and maintain?

Since they are hidden away while not in use, the amount of maintenance a drop awning requires is therefore very minimal. We recommend cleaning the retractable vertical drop screens once or twice a season to eliminate any small dust particles in the mesh or on the Precontraint. You can clean our retractable vertical drop screens with mild detergent and water, and gently wipe them off. No maintenance is required on the motor as they are self lubricating.

How waterproof are retractable screen awnings?

A vertical retractable privacy screen with cassette box and zippered side channels is 99% waterproof (not water resistant) as long as a waterproof fabric such as Ferrari 502 Satin Precontraint is used. If a mesh fabric is used they are not waterproof and are designed for sun/UV/glare/heat protection only.

Do these vertical awnings keep mosquitos out?

Depending on what mesh type you choose - yes! The holes in our vertical drop awnings mesh are very small and protect against most bugs. For superior insect protection, especially from no-see-ums a/k/a sand flies, you need to choose a mesh like Phifer No-See-Um which protects against tiny insects. All solid, opaque, non mesh fabrics will keep all bug types out regardless of bug size.
