Benefits of Having a Retractable Screen in Your Home

Aside from making your home look stunning, retractable screens have several practical benefits that you probably never thought of.

Sometimes weather conditions prevent people from enjoying their surroundings; and that just doesn’t sit right with us, which is why we created these screen systems to bring the outdoors in. Fenetex offers motorized screens that are easy to use, and these screens maintain a connection with the environment while keeping your property safe.


When looking to cool off your home or save on air conditioning usage during hot weather, motorized screens are the perfect tool for maintaining ideal temperatures with minimal effort. Having to open and close multiple screens manually is time-consuming and requires a lot of attention. Motorized screens go into position at the touch of a button, allowing the attentive owner to react to changes in the weather quickly and easily. Automation also allows you to set what time you want your screens to open or close so you don’t have to think twice.

What's more, the amount of sunlight that enters a home greatly affects its temperature. Having a retractable screen filter out the unnecessary UV rays will lower heat and save on the energy used by air conditioning, saving you money!


Storms, sunlight, insects, and snow can all adversely affect the outdoor space around a property. As a homeowner, you want to be able to enjoy your outdoor space on your own terms. So instead of being forced inside by pesky insects, a screen can maintain the scenery while also creating a barrier between people and bugs.  

Living in Florida, hurricane screens are our bread and butter. If you live near the coast, you understand the threat of hurricanes and the importance of proper preparation and protection. These screens meet Miami-Dade, Florida Building Code, and ICC 500 requirements for hurricane protection, so patio furniture won’t be carried away or damaged while secured behind these protective screens.


You can create your own private retreat at the touch of a button with a retractable screen. Not to mention, if you love hosting, motorized screen systems are the perfect way to make sure your gatherings are never interrupted by bad weather. Who wouldn’t love to be the host of their group who always throws the best parties and creates a welcoming, secure place for people to gather? A retractable screen offers that sense of privacy while also keeping you connected with nature.


Furniture and paintings will fade after long-term exposure to bright sunlight. Keeping them in the shade during the brightest hours of the day can minimize the aging of household assets and maintain their worth. This is also when the option of automatic schedules of opening/closing of the screen becomes convenient. Automation makes the act of preserving furniture and reducing energy usage simple and easy.

Humans need UV protection too. Skin cancer is the most common cancer in the United States. As Floridians, we love the sunshine just as much as the next person, but too much of anything is never a good thing. Luckily, systems like our motorized shade screens are made with UV-resistant fabric, so you can enjoy the fresh air and sunshine without the potentially harmful consequences.
