It’s the first beautiful weekend of the year and you’re having the whole family over for a nice picnic outside. As you follow someone into the house (probably your son), they slam the screen door behind them which you almost run into headfirst (typical kids!). Your hands are occupied by a bowl of potato salad and 4 glasses that need refills, so, as you stand outside unable to open the screen door with your nose, you wonder if there is a smarter screen that could open itself with the push of a button.
That product already exists! Introducing ODL’s line of Brisa Premium Retractable Screen Doors.
What is a Brisa Retractable Screen Door?
The only screen door manufactured by ODL, a Brisa Premium Retractable Screen Door is a compactly-designed, easy-to-install retractable screen that fits onto your current door’s frame. The screen fully retracts into the screen housing when not in use, and the entire unit installs out of the way of the door, allowing for an unobstructed path for both people and airflow, inside and out. Best of all, the E-Z Glide System gives the screen smooth and steady operation preventing the slamming you might get with traditional screen doors (especially those operated by your kids).
Do I need a professional to install my Brisa Premium Retractable Screen?
While Zabitat professionals can certainly install your new Brisa Premium Retractable Screen, these screens are designed with the do-it-yourselfer in mind. The Brisa Premium Retractable Screen consists of only five component parts, and most installations can be done with a single power drill in 30 minutes or less.
The Quick-Snap track along the top and bottom ensure that the screen will adjust to your door’s opening: 32-36” wide for single doors, and 68-72” for double doors. Those tracks can even be trimmed with a hacksaw to fit doors narrower than those listed (as narrow as 28” for single door Brisa screens and 47” for double door Brisa screens).
Need your single door Brisa to open left-to-right instead of right-to-left? Brisa Premium Retractable Screens are designed to be installed with the screen housing on either side of the door, to easily match the side with the door’s hinge. And the ergonomically designed latch/lock handle can be flipped during installation allowing the Brisa Premium Retractable Screen to open with either a simple press down of the button or a push up. Either way, the latch and lock handle can be easily operated by one hand, even if that hand is full of another platter of deviled eggs. Why didn’t you make more deviled eggs? You know your family loves deviled eggs!
How do I pick the right Brisa Premium Retractable Screen product?
Using the below chart can help ensure you have the right product selected for your doors. For hinged doors, first measure the height of your door. The Brisa Premium Retractable Screen is available in single- and double-door products in 78”, 80”, and 96” heights. Brisa Premium Retractable Screens for hinged doors come in White, Sandstone (a light tan), and Bronze (a dark brown), and the durable paint and rust-free aluminum won’t rust with age.
You will also want to ensure that you purchase the correct Brisa Premium Retractable Screen for the way your hinged door or doors swings open. If the hinged door(s) onto which you will be installing the Brisa Premium Retractable Screen swings in towards the interior of your home, please purchase the screen made for Inswing Hinged Doors. Should your hinged door(s) swing out towards the exterior of your home, purchase the screen labeled for Outswing Hinged Doors.
Have a Sliding Patio door? The first column shows that ODL manufactures a single Brisa Premium Retractable Screen for 78” tall sliding patio doors. That product is only available in White.
