Retractable & Motorized "Walls" for Exteriors

Patio5_interior If you have spectacular views, then glass is the new window treatment. That said, there are times you might want shade from the heat and conventional blinds just won't do. The Mirage Motorized Screen system lets you to hide a roller assembly along eaves or under gutters, but when you need shade or protection from flying things, a touch of the button dispenses fiberglass screens.

According to the manufacturer Alco Ventures, the screens are strong enough to act as retractable walls to screen in lanais, patios and gazebos, and can reduce infrared emissions into home interiors by 90%. Available from 3' x 3' to 25' x 16' panels, the screens are available in 3 standard colors, (white, ivory or bronze) and virtually any custom color. In addition to the motorized screens, Alco produces retractable screens -- which roll back discretely into the roller assembly.Mirage_motorized_screen

Comment on This Article Here! Retractable & Motorized "Walls" for Exteriors:

I currently have a screened in porch, but I like to use occasionally in the winter--with the addition of supplemental heat. I have used durable plastic in the past (plastic supported by thin strips of wood and just screwed into the supports) but I would like to find something more attractive and convenient. Do you think any of your screening materials would serve my purpose? I live in New Jersey (Salem County) and the winters are cold but nor severe. If you believe you can help me, I will supply my address so that you can forward information and prices. Thank you.

You didn't say if you wanted light(?) or view. If you have light and want privacy and warmth, how about cotton canvas curtains with grommets at the top to hang on hooks or by curtain type poles.

Also bamboo screening might look nice, and the air in the reeds would provide some insulation affect, I would think.

Wiah you well.
