Screen doors come in three types - hinged, retractable and sliding. Easy to fit, they all let light and air into your home while keeping insects and unwanted intruders out. We’ll show you what to consider when choosing a screen door for your beach house.
An aluminium screen door is ideal if you live near the beach or in an area with high humidity. Aluminium is durable, won’t corrode and it will help to keep the bugs and the burglars out. Aluminium screens can also be used on windows for extra security.
Hardwood doors offer flexibility, they can either be fixed on a hinge or used as a sliding door. Hardwood doors come in 32mm and 90mm and can be painted or stained to match the colour of your house.
Retractable screen doors come in a range of different colours, are easy to fit and easy to remove. All you do is attach the screen door to one side of the door frame and the metal strip to the opposite side. The spring loaded retracting rail has a magnetic end to make sure that the door stays closed when not in use.
