Spring is at our doorstep and summer will be hot on its heels, which means we are going to want to open up our homes again and enjoy the warmer weather on offer.
Retractable flyscreen doors are the perfect addition to your home for these warmer months because they give you the option and control over how much light and sun you are letting in, while also protecting against insects.
Permanent options are great for keeping insects out, but what about those times where you want to be able to let the breeze in or just enjoy an unfiltered view of your garden and surroundings?
Meanwhile, retractable flyscreen doors give you the best of both worlds, allowing you to slide them out when you need them and then retract them back into the door frame when you don’t require them. This is not only a tidy and convenient option, but also offers plenty of other benefits which we’ve outlined in more detail below.
Keep the flow of air going in your home
One of the biggest annoyances about summer is the flying creatures that will try and invade your home through an open access point. So opening up your doors and windows is going to let a lovely breeze through your home, but also invite the bugs and insects in.
Retractable designs are a perfect solution to keep the flow of air coming through your home while also keeping the insects out.
You can get rid of the insecticide
One way to get rid of insects is to spray them with bug spray, but this is not a preferable option for many people. A lot of these sprays contain harmful chemicals which is not great when you have children and pets in the house.
It also sticks to your carpets, your furniture, your curtains – pretty much everything and then you also have the issue of dead insects throughout your home. By installing retractable doors, you can get rid of the spray and just keep the bugs outside where they belong.
They help provide the perfect lighting setting
Summer can obviously be very bright, which also poses dilemmas. Opening up your home can let too much light in while keeping it closed up can make the heat unbearable – or ratchet up those electricity bills because you are using air conditioning and fans more.
Retractable flyscreen doors have an additional benefit in that they cut out about 50 per cent of the glare from the sun so you can have a softer level of sunlight streaming into your home, with no bugs and with those expensive aircon units left turned off.
They are perfect for entertainment spaces
You can have retractable designs made to order, and they can cover large spaces so you can protect against the insects on patios, decks and other entertainment spaces.
