Why choose Centor screening systems?

You should choose Centor retractable screens if you are after unobtrusive insect protection for openings as wide as 24'. The robust system is a delight to use – opening and closing with just the touch of a fingertip. The Centor insect screen won’t spoil your view, with sheer mesh that disappears when not in use. For these reasons, a Centor retractable screen is the best solution for screening large openings.


How tough are Centor screens?

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.


What do I do if I have a problem with my screen?

Please call Centor or the company that installed your screen.


Can I combine a screen and a blind in the one system?

Yes. A combined insect screen and blind system can be installed in openings up to 12' wide and 7' 6" tall. Visit the Blinds page for more information.


Who should install Centor systems?

Your S1E screens or blinds should be installed by a qualified contractor who is familiar with the system. If buying your screen or blind from a door manufacturer, they may offer an installation service or direct you to qualified tradespeople in your area. You should consult the relevant government body to ensure the contractor you hire to install your screens is appropriately licensed.


What maintenance is required?

Centor screen systems require just simple maintenance. In general, all that is required is regular cleaning to keep components clear of grit. For full details, visit our maintenance page.


Do Centor screens come with a warranty?

What finishes are Centor screens available in?
