Screens:


Aluminum-Framed Screens for most products


Most of our products are available with durable, aluminum-framed screens. See specific product pages for availability, details, and limitations.

  • Corner keys for stability on most screen frames

  • Frame colors vary by product type

  • BetterVue screen mesh (see details & screen mesh options below)

The screen frames shown are for most crank-out casements and awnings. Clay, White and Beige are shown with corner keys for stability. Dark Bronze and Clear Anodized are shown with mitered corners.


StormGuard Combination Storm/Screens for Double Hungs & Sliders


StormGuard Combination storm/screen units are available for many Ultra, Heritage & Classic Series double hungs & sliders.* See specific product pages for availability. 

The benefit of combination storm/screen units is that they do not have to be installed for storm seasons or removed for ventilation. The glass storm panels can be closed over the screens for extra protection from harsh weather, but conveniently opened for fresh air. 

  • Glass and screen inserts are removable from the interior for cleaning
  • Weatherstripping around the inserts ensures a tight fit
  • Weep holes prevent sill damage
  • Extruded aluminum frames are a light-weight alloy
  • Frame colors:  Beige, White, Sand, Rustic, Hartford Green, Chutney, Ultra Pure White, and Coal Black
  • Sight lines blend with window
  • BetterVue screen mesh (see details & screen mesh options below)

*The unit on the left is for sliders, the one on the right is for double hungs

Not available for radius-top windows


Wood-Wrapped Screens for Crank-Out Casements & Awnings


Wood-wrapped screen frames are available for many Ultra, Heritage & Classic Series crank-out casements & awnings (including EP & XL). This options offers the ability to more closely match the interior decor with a desired wood species, thereby providing a more refined aesthetic than the standard aluminum screen frames. Please check specific product pages for availability.
  • Aluminum frames with mitered corners
  • Wrapped with wood veneer on three sides
  • BetterVue screen mesh (see details & screen mesh options below)

*Cost may vary depending on wood species selected


Inswing Screens for Push-Out Casements & Awnings


Inswing screens are available for most Ultra & Heritage Series push-out casements and awnings and provide very simple pull-in operation and easy removal for cleaning. See specific product pages for availability. 
  • Faced with pine or other wood species
  • Durable mortise & tenon corners
  • Latch & strike system secures the screen
  • Latch & strike match window handles and enhance the traditional appearance
  • BetterVue screen mesh (see details & screen mesh options below)

The inswing screen shown is for push-out casements


Retractable Screens for Casements & Sterling Double Hungs


Retractable screens are available for most Ultra Series crank-out casements & awnings (including EP and XL), Ultra & Heritage Series push-out casements & awnings, as well as Ultra & Heritage Series Sterling double hungs.* See specific product pages for availability, details, and limitations for each product. 

The benefit of retractable screens is undisputed in that they protect the indoors from insects when a window is open and the screen is down. BetterVue screen mesh is visually less noticeable than many screen types on the market. And, when not needed, a simple touch to the center of the "pull bar" sends the screen rolling up smoothly, for an unobstructed view.

  • Available factory-installed for most products
  • Available as a kit for installation in the field
  • Faced with pine or other wood species
  • Screen pulls down smoothly
  • To retract, gently press center of pull bar
  • Unobstructed view when retracted
  • BetterVue screen mesh (see details below)
  • No other screen mesh options available
  • Not available on radius-top windows

*The screen shown is for push-out casements; designs vary slightly depending on the product

Not available on radius-top windows
