Motorized Power Screens FAQ’s

Motorized Power Screens are commonly installed on patios, California rooms, garage doors, and interior or exterior windows and doors. They can turn your desired space into a shaded, comfortable, private, wind-free and pest-free environment.

Motorized Power Screens are the ideal solution for any opening that helps add living space, shade, weather protection, privacy and protection from unwanted critters to your home. Depending on the fabric selected, our Motorized Power Screens can offer an unobstructed view while reducing the harmful effects of the sun’s powerful ultra violet rays. They are commonly installed to protect furniture and wood floors from harmful UV Rays common to Southern California.

A horizontal seam in the mesh or fabric is necessary when you reach a certain height for an opening in which a power screen is to be installed. The seam joins two pieces of screen mesh or fabric together to accommodate certain heights. Whether or not a seam is required varies depending on the screen mesh and fabric. The horizontal seam location can be placed at the top or bottom of the power screen depending on the customer’s design. An exact location is also available.

Motorized Power Screens are commonly installed to keep pets and animals inside or outside. The zipper system (vertical tracks/rails) creates a 100% seal on the sides of the screen while the weight of the hem bar makes it nearly impossible for any animal to escape. With excessive force, however, it is possible for a pet, animal, or even a child to push through the zipper system.
