Pella Introduces Rolscreen Retractable Screen for Vinyl Sliding Patio Doors

Published on May 27, 2013 at 8:24 AM

With outdoor temperatures on the rise, homeowners are firing up the grill and opening windows and patio doors to let in fresh air.

"Now is the time to install a new patio door so you can enjoy your backyard, patio or deck all summer long," said Sandy Blom, Pella product manager. "Patio doors create an impressive focal point for your home and frame your landscaping and view. Plus, they're designed to let in plenty of sunlight and fresh air into your home."

Pella now offers its innovative Rolscreen retractable screen for Pella 350 Series premium vinyl sliding patio doors. The Rolscreen rolls sideways across the patio door to provide ventilation when needed and then rolls back out of sight when not in use, allowing more natural light to flow into a home, rather than looking through a screen year-round. When rolled away, Rolscreen retractable screens are protected from the elements, children and pets. Plus, there's no need to take them down and store them in the winter.

"We pioneered the Rolscreen technology in 1925, and it remains popular today with homeowners who enjoy the convenience of a retractable screen from Pella," Blom said.

Features of the Rolscreen retractable screen:

  • Available on 2-, 3- and 4-panel Pella 350 Series vinyl patio door configurations in all sizes
  • Screen is color-matched to the exterior color of the patio door
  • Durable extruded aluminum design holds up to heavy use
  • Easy-to-operate design: the handle and magnet are incorporated into the pull bar to make it easy to open and close
  • Floating magnet system provides "give and take" to help ensure a tight seal when the door is closed
  • Low-profile sill track, to help reduce potential tripping
  • Low-friction, powder-coat paint on tracks ensures smoother gliding

The optional Pella Rolscreen must be ordered at the time of purchase of a new Pella 350 Series patio door, since the Rolscreen is installed as part of the patio door's installation.

Distinctive vinyl patio doors

Pella 350 Series sliding patio doors are ideal for balconies, decks or patios. They feature optional triple-pane glass, impact glazing, blinds between-the-glass and up to four door panels. Their exclusive SmoothSeam™ welded corners are virtually invisible, and they're stronger and more durable than other vinyl products. Pella 350 Series products with triple-pane glass are 54% to 83% more energy efficient than single-pane products.1
