What Model Fresh Air Garage Door Screen is Best for Me? 

You might be familiar with garage door screens, but did you know our screens are more than that? Fresh Air Screens® are designed to enhance your home, not just your garage! You can use these screens to enhance your living space and create an atmosphere you will love. Enjoy your workshop, garage or enclosed patio without dust, bugs, and debris causing problems, simply by equipping your home with Fresh Air garage door screens. All you need to do is choose the right screen for the opening you want to protect.

Types of Fresh Air Garage Door Screens

Fresh Air Screens, Inc. has four distinct models of garage door screens to choose from for your home.  Although all four can be equipped across any structural opening you wish, the different models provide options to enhance specific areas more conveniently. The four models can fit into two categories, determined by function. Models A and B are non-retractable screens, while models C and D are retractable screens.

Non-retractable models work best for areas that do not need to allow vehicle entry. Areas of the home where these screens are ideal would be for enclosed porches or patios. They are not limited there, however, as they can be used for workshops, gazebos and more. These models have a simpler construction that does not have to accommodate vehicles. As a result, they offer excellent coverage and easy access while helping preserve the comfort of your places to work, rest and play.

Model A. Model A does not have a zipper and is convenient for places that do not have foot traffic areas. The large mesh area provides a nice, uninterrupted view to the outside while protecting the area against outdoor elements.

Model B. Model B has 1 zipper that allows entrance to foot traffic areas. This screen is convenient for enclosed porches and patios and provides a beautiful alternative to screen doors.

Retractable models are perfectly suited for entrances that allow vehicles through. Each are equipped with manually retractable mechanisms that allow for easy entrance and exit. Both standard models are equipped with buckles and straps for your convenience to keep the screen in place when rolled up. Retractable models can be accessorized with a rope and pull kit that enhances the function, making them even more convenient than ever.  

Model C. Model C has 2 zippers located at each side the screen that allow you to raise the entire screen with ease.

Model D. Model D, with three zippers, gives you the option to raise half the screen or all of it at once. This is perfect for garages that double as a work area, as you can conveniently move a vehicle in and out of the garage by raising the entire screen or move yard equipment in and out of the garage without exposing the entire area.

Benefits of Choosing the Right Screen
