You know your living space better than anyone, and you’ve decided it is time to make an adjustment. By adding a Fresh Air Screen®, you know you will increase ventilation, privacy, and comfort and eliminate bug and debris damage. But with all the different options available, how do you decide what screen will work best for your structure?
Manish Ghatpande once said, "Real power is having all the options, but choosing the right one." We want to give you Buyer Power, because we know you are not just investing in a product, you are investing in your home. Here are some tips on purchasing the perfect Fresh Air Screen.
There are two keys that will turn your purchase into a successful investment. All other questions and answers are usually regarding these two elements.
Size really does matter, and at Fresh Air Screens, Inc. we embrace them all! We offer 8 standard sizes for convenience. These standard sizes are based on common residential garage measurements. Fresh Air Screens are designed to serve many residential and commercial applications, however, so standard sizes may not fit your structure. If you are not sure what size you need, try our measuring guide.
Model A and Model B are non-retractable. They do not roll-up and are also sometimes referred to as stationary screens. They are popular in both residential and commercial applications where vehicle traffic is not expected. These screens are often used for porch or patio screens, garage conversions, and business areas that do not serve as warehouses, garages, carports or other similar industries.
Model C and Model D roll up and down, very much like shades. The design is as simple and easy as stationary screens, but they provide vehicle access. They are great for residential and commercial garages, warehouses, carports and more!
Retractable screens feature a buckle and strap system, or they can be upgraded with a rope and pull kit accessory for additional convenience. Check out this comparison between the two methods to see how each one works, and which might be better for your home or business.
At this time, Fresh Air Screens, Inc. does not supply custom screens. Please subscribe to receive updates on products and services.
If you purchase a 2 zipper or 3 zipper model (model C and Model D respectively), you do not have to remove your screen for vehicle traffic. These models were designed specifically for garages, so not only can your car pass through them, but they won’t interfere with garage mechanisms.
No. You can still add a rope and pull kit (or even remove the rope and pull kit) after installation. Buckles and straps, however, are sewn into the screen during production, so they are not sold separately as an accessory.
Our production team would like to share some helpful tips for preparing a great experience using your screen.
When you are measuring your garage for the right fit, be sure to take the measurements from the outside looking into the garage. This is especially important for structures with custom sizes or structures that are not proportioned the same on both sides.
There are things you can do to extend the life of your screen and adhesive loop strips.
