Traditional screen doors or storm doors have a major flaw in utility, and that is the fact they are always in the way.

2. Child & Pet Friendly
Do you have children or animals that constantly lean or run into your screen doors? It’s damaging to the screen and the screen door frame, bending it out of alignment. Holes start appearing, the screen loses slack, eventually it doesn’t work like it use to. That’s where retractable screens are another huge benefit.
The screen in a Brisa Retractable Screen is not glued into place on the tracks. That means it has the give to break away from the housing track preventing damage to the screen. If a child or a pet accidentally leans into the screen, you’re not going to get the wear and tear that you would normally see from a traditional screen door.
Also, the Brisa Screen has an additional threaded line in two horizontal stripes on the screen to make it more visible in the sunlight. That way you know if the screen is there or if it’s currently retracted. Children and pets will be able to see the screen more clearly and have less incidents of running into the screen door.
3. It Retracts
Has your sliding screen door ever not slide? Too many sliding screen doors end up having issues with sliding in and out of the way. Over time, the screen frame becomes bent or constantly misaligned causing major issues trying to actually open and close the screen door.
That’s another huge benefit of the Brisa Screen. There is no sliding it back and forth anymore. Instead, it just retracts on it’s own, completely out of your way. The housing unit automatically pulls the screen out of your way and holds the screen inside itself until you are ready to extend it again.
No more hassle with a non-functioning screen door.
