Introduction to Retractable Screens

Sep 16th, 2022

Some of you might be wondering, why have retractable screens when you’ve got screen doors, while others might be shuddering at the thought of getting something—anything—retractable because they’re biased against all things retractable.

Here’s a brief look into retractable screens.

What are they?

As the name suggests, retractable screens are translucent covers commonly installed near the outdoors, say the gazebo, deck, garage, porch, patio, backyard, and balconies. They can be installed directly over a bare gap in a wall or go over a glass door or window.

When sliding open, they retract within a box at the top as per their nature.

Benefits of Retractable Screen

Here’s how habitat screens, in particular, might benefit your house.


They protect from UV rays on an extraordinarily sunny day, enabling you to be in the sun while avoiding the worst of it.

Unobstructed View

While a screen door only gives limited visibility to the outdoors, habitat screens are much larger. They give you an obstructed view instead of tunnel vision.


Habitat screens looking over the woods are perfect for enjoying the fruits of nature instead of its insects. They keep annoying mosquitos on the other side, leaving you to enjoy the best bits of your view.


By their very design, screens make a space cooler in the summers and warmer in the winters.


They are so easy to clean that you can wash them down with a garden hose.

How to Choose Habitat Screens

Talius Habitat Screens™ are highly adaptable to your needs, but do you know what they are? Here’s an idea.


Habitat screens can be as large as 19’2”, which is a large enough size to fit your needs. They’re flexible enough to be customized to every available size, provided you know what it is.


Do you want it manual or automated? Would you rather control its movements via remote or let it do its own thing by installing sun sensors and timers?

Talius Habitat Screens™ can be integrated with commercial building systems for smoother operations, and they can also be installed within homes. Going automatic is a no-brainer, but you could always choose to go the old-fashioned way.


Talius Habitat Screens™ are available in five colors: white, beige, brown, black, and silver. They can also be customized in over 1800 colors of your choice.

You could land on a certain hue by matching it with an aspect of your décor, say the furniture, lighting fixtures, or smaller knick-knacks. You can also choose to go with the colors of your scenery, in which case a darker green or brown wouldn’t be so bad.
