Centor Architectural Insect Screen

Frequently Asked Questions:

  1. What is a Centor Architectural Insect Screen?
    Centor screens are the perfect choice for unobtrusive insect protection in large openings up to 24’ 10” wide and 10’ 6” tall. The revolutionary S1E Eco-Screen combines the benefits of a screen and blind while allowing homeowners to have control of their living environment, with the S1E Eco-Screen entirely built into the window or door frame. The screen and/or blind completely disappears when you don’t need it. When used on large windows and doors it makes the most of natural light, controls heat gain during summer, reduces heat loss in winter, and thereby reduces reliance on heating and cooling systems.

  2. What types of openings will a Centor Screen work on?
    Centor's award-winning screen systems are the perfect complement to folding doors, large compacting sliding doors or French doors.

  3. What makes the Centor Screen different than a Retractable Screen Door?
    The screen can be opened and shut from any height on the stile, so even small children can operate it. With no spring loading to fight against, the screen remains firmly in any chosen position across the opening. One major consideration during the screen’s development was its ‘livability’. It thus had to pass the ‘barbecue test’ where a person must be able to operate the screen easily, with a tray of drinks or food in hand.

  4. How difficult is it to install a Centor Architectural Screen?
    Centor Screens must be installed by a certified, licensed, bonded and insured installer. The installation of a single unit typically takes about 2 hours with two installers; a double screen unit typically takes about 2 ½ hours with two installers.

  5. What size openings will a Centor Screen accommodate?
    Centor has solved the problem of screening off large openings with its magnificent retractable insect screen system. Openings as wide as 24' 10” and 10’ 6” in height; can now be effectively and unobtrusively screened, with the robust system operating with just the touch of a fingertip.

  6. Are Centor Screens built to last?
    Centor has extensively tested the screens to ensure they are up to the challenge of real-life use. The screen system has withstood cycle testing to 400,000 operations, and been exposed to dust, mud, sand and salt spray. It has also stood up to impact testing with a 37-pound punching bag 100 times, and considerable pushing, poking and prodding to simulate real-life use.

  7. What maintenance is required?
    Centor screen systems require just simple maintenance. In general, all that is required is regular cleaning to keep the bottom and top track clear of dirt and debris. For full details, please visit our Centor maintenance page.

  8. Do Centor Screens come with a warranty?
    Yes, Centor screens come with a 5 year warranty. For full details, please visit our Centor warranty page.

  9. Are custom powder coated colors available for an additional charge? Yes! We currently offer over 210 Tiger Drylac Custom Powder Coated Colors.

  10. What about pets and/or animals, can they get in or out?
    The Centor screen will keep pets/animals in or out to a degree, but the screen is not secured at the top or bottom by design. Therefore it is possible for a pet/animal to push its way underneath if given reasonable force.
