Screen Options for Porches

Motorized retractable screens are available with different screen fabric options for insect protection, shade, or privacy. The frames can be surface-mounted or recessed.

The aluminum frames for Connecticut Screen Works’ commercial-grade panels have a .067-inch wall thickness and a 1-inch by 1 3/4-inch profile. The panels can be ordered in either fully-assembled or KD versions to fit openings as large as 16 feet by 16 feet.

Framing must be planned to accommodate the guide tracks and motor housing for recessed motorized retractable screens.

The ScreenEze system has a minimal, unobtrusive profile that fits well with contemporary designs, and can span openings up to 150 square feet.

Instead of relying on rubber splines, ScreenEze has a vinyl cap that snaps over its 3/4-inch by 3/4-inch aluminum base channel.

While most screen track is made of extruded aluminum, Screen Tight also offers a UV-protected vinyl profile.

After the screen has been attached to the Screen Tight base with splines, a removable vinyl cap is snapped onto the base, which evenly tightens the screening.

Screen panel frames made with multi-track extrusions can be fitted with self-storing vinyl window inserts, as well as screens, as in this system from EZ Porch.
