French doors are a romantic addition to any home. However, when it comes to insect protection, these doors might not seem like the most practical type of door. You may feel like you have to choose between the aesthetics and value of having a French door or having the option of opening your doors with insect protection.
However, today on the Metro Screenworks blog, we are featuring our retractable screens for French doors which eliminates the need to choose between having French doors and insect protection – you can have both!
Can a French Door Have a Screen?
Absolutely! A retractable screen door is designed to provide insect protection when needed and then retract out-of-the-way and out-of-sight. As a result, the aesthetics of the French doors are unaffected by the installation of the screen doors but the screens are available when you want to open your doors and don’t want to deal with the bugs.
How Do You Put a Screen In a French Door?
By installing retractable screens. A sliding screen door or a hinged screen door will change the aesthetics of your home and installing them on a French door opening is not possible. Retractable screen doors for French doors offer complete insect protection like you would expect from these traditional types of screen doors but do not affect the functioning or aesthetics of your double doors.
French Retractable Screen Door Options
We offer two retractable double screen door options. Both are designed to offer longevity and beauty.
The Genius® Milano 200 retractable screen doors are designed specifically with French doors in mind. The Milano 200 are essentially French retractable screen doors that meet in the middle and can be installed with doors that swing out or in. The Milano 200 are highly customizable and can be ordered-to-size with your choice of frame color, screen type, and more to allow your screen doors to match the aesthetics of your home.
Genius® COOL™ Retractable Screen Door For Double Door
The Genius COOL retractable screen door is like the Milano 200 in that it is designed with French doors in mind, but offers less customizations. It is the economy choice and is designed to be installed within 30 minutes. These double screen doors are the perfect choice for those looking for a quick (but high-quality fix) and those less inclined for home improvement projects.
