Garages used for motor parking need to be ever accessible for quick approach. Space should be plenty to open the doors wide and frisk easily. Thus, their doors were often the topic of discussion. Recent garage door screen trends have changed the perspective to optimum solution compared to the traditional doors once employed. People are now opting for DIY installing kits for their convenience. Apart from neat designs and compact structures, there lie hidden purposes why the screens came to market successfully replacing the doors for garages?
Screens Vs Doors
- The metallic or wooden doors and gates, swinging to and fro, occupied extra space, which wasn’t fruitful. Screens are, in turn, retractable that need no opening space.
- Moreover, the metallic ones have to be painted to save from rust or the wooden ones polished. But screens are made of fibreless glass, requiring no such maintenance.
- The climatic effect is nil as there is no chipping or rusting allowed on the surface.
Good looking designs and customised fit for all sizes, the screens are available in complete DIY kits for self-installation.
The garage door screen kit is widely ranged for varied measurements according to the required door or shutter. The installation guide usually covers all the accompaniments, and additional purchases aren’t required. The product is shipped along with a pictured guide and multilingual instruction set to help with stepwise setup. Some important stages include:
- Measuring The Dimensions: Before we set the screen door, we should be sure of the dimensions. Using a measuring tape, find out the width and height. While describing width is stated first, then the height preferably in inches.
- Cutting The Screen: For single or double screens, the cassette is cut according to the measures. Then follows the trimming and craft cutting the top and bottom rolls and side rolls for magnets.
- Spring Insertion: The kit contains all the necessary fitting installations, like springs at the cassette’s ends. After tight rolling, fix the end caps and weather stripping on the sides.
- Magnet Attachments: The screens work on remote controls. Thus, magnets and required electrical components are inserted. Finally, using mounting clips, the cassette and the rail are set up. One can use screws for the tight catch of the screen.
The fibreglass being transparent also serves the purpose of no requirement to open the shutter every time to see. Screens are easy to maintain and install and work on the remote control with little or no effort.
