Centor Retractable Screens
The Centor S1E Eco-Screen is a world-first retractable insect screen for openings as wide as 7.6m. It operates with just a fingertip and completely disappears into the door frame when not in use. The insect screen can also be combined with a blind in a single system for complete versatility.
The system comes in single or double configurations: a single screen opening from the left or right (up to 3900mm); or two screens, one opening from each side, and meeting in the middle (up to 7600mm). When combined with a blind, the screen opens from one side and the blind the other in openings up to 3900mm.
A range of Centor innovations ensures the whole package functions simply and smoothly.
Load Balancing Technology
Load Balancing Technology (LBT) (patent pending) allows for the effortless fingertip control synonymous with Centor products. With no crude spring-loading to fight against, the screen’s lead stile remains firmly in any chosen position until further pressure is applied. Load-balancing also means far greater tension across the screen or blind, eliminating any tendency for sag.
Tight Technology manufacturing techniques ensure control of the horizontal edges of the screen so they remain straight and tight across the widest spans.
In the majority of cases, the shock absorption mechanism prevents system damage by redirecting impact away from the screen.
- 7600mm (double system)
- 3900mm (single system)
- 3900mm (with blind)
- 3200mm (screen only)
- 2450mm (with blind)
- Self-Feeding Mechanism
- Should the wind blow the screen out of the top or bottom channels the fabric will self-feedback onto the roll.
- Centor’s screens are manufactured in stainless steel and reinforced engineering polymers. The tough PVC-coated polyester mesh used in the screen is hardwearing and resistant to damage from pets. The mesh is easy to clean and can be replaced.
- The screen system has undergone cycle testing to 400,000 operations in a laboratory and has been extensively exposed to dust, mud, sand and corrosive atmosphere. It has stood up to impact testing with a 17kg punching bag 100 times and considerable pushing, poking and prodding to simulate real-life use.
