How to Choose a Retractable Screen Door
There are a lot of retractable screen doors on the market, but not many can stand up to our Mirage screen door standards. We always recommend that you compare similar door products so you can properly evaluate the retractable screen door product features. Every Mirage retractable screen door has beenrigorously tested and is built for years of reliable service:
- The retractable screen door guides (the plastic parts that guide the retractable screen open or closed) are manufactured from a durable, heavy duty space-age material and contains its own screen door lubricant. This long-lasting lubricant is what allows the retractable screen to slide with minimal effort and with minimal wear, providing years of reliable service.
- The internal moving parts of the retractable screen door are treated with a unique lubricant that is resistant to a wide range of temperature changes and helps to ensure smooth operation while preventing corrosion and preventing annoying squeaks from developing.
- The central shaft of the retractable screen door rotates in a silicon brass bushing allowing it to withstand literally hundreds of thousands of openings and closings without undue wear and tear of crucial parts.
- Our Mirage retractable screen door products are routinely cycle tested up to a quarter million times! That equates to about 69 years of continuous use if you average using your retractable screen door 10 times per day, 365 days of the year. In other words, our retractable screen doors are designed for real world use.
- Mirage Screen Systems strives to make the best quality retractable screen door products possible. We are proud to have developed a solid reputation for making retractable screen doors that have the longest trouble free life span on the market. And, our products are easy to install, easy to use, and packaged to compliment the décor of your home.

The retractable screen easily extends from the housing and is held in place by a magnetic latch. The door screen easily retracts with the help of a spring-loaded roller tube that is built into the unit housing. The majority of homeowners prefer a retractable screen door over more traditional slider doors as they do not obstruct landscape or vista views.

When not in use, simply retract the door screen and it won’t obstruct your view or get in your way! Can I install a Mirage Retractable Screen on the door between my garage and house? This too, is a popular screen option. In most cases this is superior to having a traditional screen door. Rather than having to open both the door and the screen door, the Mirage Screen Door retracts when not in use. This means you only have to open one door while balancing your load of groceries. This is the practical solution that makes sense! How do I install a Mirage retractable screen door? There is no need to worry about how to install your new retractable screen door.
