What is a Clear View Retractable Screen® System?
Clear View Retractable Screen® Systems utilize the old-fashioned technology of roll-up blinds, updated and advanced to work vertically or horizontally. Our Clear View Retractable Screen® Systems are manufactured with a durable and lightweight aluminum housing that protects the screen cloth when not in use. Within the housing, the Clear View Retractable Screen®System is anchored to an aluminum tube and tension control device.
Clear View’s Patented Speed Reducer insures our doors will retract fully without danger of trapped fingers or a “slamming” return.
Clear View Retractable Screens have the ability to “be there when you need it and gone when you don’t”. In other words, the screen mesh rolls into and out of a sleek powder coated aluminum housing or “canister”. Each canister blends stylishly into the door frame.
Why should I choose a Clear View door instead of a traditional screen door or a storm door?
Have you ever tried carrying groceries through a traditional screen or storm door and got caught on the door handle or have it hit the back of your feet? By choosing a Clear View Door you can eliminate that from happening. The Clear View Retractable Screen retracts into a sleek housing when not in use; this allows for easy pass through and keeps the screen safe from harm.
The Clear View Retractable hides away when not in use, not distracting from the look of a beautiful ornate front door. Try one of our matching wood grain color selections.
Will a Retractable Screen add value to my home?
Considering the value of residential space, it makes perfect sense to create more “livable” areas with high quality products.

Retractable Screen Maintenance
One of the exclusive benefits of the Clear View Retractable Screen Door ® System is that it is virtually maintenance free! However, we have a few minor tips to minimize normal wear and tear.
- Keep the rails free of dirt and debris.
- Do not scrub, pressure wash, use any harsh chemicals or abrasives on your Retractable Screen System, this could cause damage to the powder coated finish and screen material.
- Occasionally spray the tracks with our approved dry silicone spray, which should be purchased from your Clear View Retractable Screen®Systems Dealer.
- If you need to clean your frame or screen material, use a soft cloth and a mild soap like Ivory or Dawn mixed with warm water.
- When not in use it is best to keep the screen retracted in its housing.
- Clear View Retractable Screens®are not meant to be used in high wind conditions. During high wind conditions the screen should be in its housing to prevent damage.
- Avoid pushing on the screen material to open the doors. Using the handles will prevent the screen from wrinkling or tearing.
Never try to make repairs on your screen system yourself. All Clear View Retractable Screen® Systems are installed by Certified Installers who know every aspect of our Screen Systems. Please contact your installing Dealer for any needed adjustment or repairs. Your Screen System will thank you!
