Retractable Screens

Keep Your View, Let the Air In, and Keep Bugs Out with Our Retractable Screens

Retractable Screens are designed to control light and heat transfer and enhance privacy. Our shading fabrics can filter the light by varying degrees, allowing you to reduce glare and save energy at home without sacrificing visibility. Outdoors, our exterior screens for porches & patios will turn your open porch into a bug-free space doubling as an innovative roll-up insect screen.








Horizontal Gliding Screens

Centor horizontal retractable screens are the preferred choice among design professionals. Maintain panoramic views while keeping bugs out with Centor wide span screens. Innovative counter balance engineering eliminates springs and permits one handed glide touch operation. Dual Insect Screen and Solar Control Shade combinations are available up to 24’ wide spans. You can even use the Solar Shade as a projection screen!


Blurring the line between indoor and outdoor living. Made to order.

Retractable Solar Screens and Shades

Outdoor Solar Systems

Retractable Solar Shades provide energy-efficient sun shading, shelter against bugs and mosquitoes, climate control and rain/wind reduction while allowing outward visibility. Depending on screen fabric selection, our solar shade fabric selections are capable of blocking up to 95% of ultra-violet (UV) rays–saving up to 50% of the energy used to heat and cool homes.

The cable option is perfect for homes that call for a low profile approach to avoid interrupting the style or architecture. Our screens’ minimalist profile blends in to your home’s exterior. Made with the same parts and quality as our Side Retention System, cables are used to guide the screen fabric as it is lowered or raised.

Working With Design Professionals

We bridge the gap. Simply specifying a product often does not complete the plan for installation. We work in collaboration with design/build professionals at early stages of projects to review plans, product specification and installation considerations for the wide range of solutions we offer. The earlier we connect the better the outcome. This activity is often done through screen shares with our experienced product specialists.  We also provide on-site consultation to insure things go together as planned. The guidance we provide is free. We also provide full installation and service for our products, including site visits during the build process to network with the general contractor.

Cannot tell you enough how much we are pleased with our shutters. Now that the hot weather is here, we are using them to keep the house cool by lowering the upper shutters during a particularly hot day. We do lower them when there are storms but also if it happens to be a windy and/or cold night. We find that they help maintain the warmth in the house.
