We’ve provided answers to the questions we most often receive.

Frequently Asked Questions

What is a Centor Screen?

Centor Screens are retractable screens with pully systems, which allow them to be easily opened or closed with no resistance to even the touch of a fingertip. Like a standard retractable screen, a Centor Screen disappears when not in use and can accommodate openings up to 24’-10” wide and 10’-6” tall. A Centor Screen is basically a Retractable Screen on steroids.

Depending on the application, a Centor Screen can be installed on the interior or exterior of your home. It will convert any opening into a shaded, comfortable, private, and pest-free environment. Centor Screens make the most use of natural light. In the summer, they limit heat gain, and in the winter, they reduce heat loss.

Where can I install a Centor Screen?

Centor Screens are the perfect solution for bi-folding patio doors and compacting sliding patio doors with large openings.

What size opening will a Centor Screen accommodate?

Centor Screens are able to screen off openings up to 24’-10” wide and 10’-6” tall with their innovative cable pull retractable screen systems.

What makes the Centor Screen different than a standard Retractable Screen Door?

The Centor Screen can be opened and closed with ease from any height on the vertical pull bar with no spring load resistance to fight against. Unlike with a standard retractable screen, the pull bar on a Centor Screen stays exactly where you place it and will never retract on its own.
