Mirage Retractable Screen Feature Details
Powder Coated (5 step, certified)
Mirage Retractable Screens formulates their retractable screens’ finish to exceed one of the toughest paint standards in the industry for UV and salt spray resistance, the AAMA 2604. Further, Mirage Retractable Screens are the only retractable screen products with an externally certified finish: Q-Base Certified.
Be wary of our competitors’ non-powder-coated finishes, as they will show excessive wear and fading over the life of the product.
Super magnet (3x stronger)
Mirage Retractable Screens come standard with a latching magnet that is 3 times stronger than our competition. This ensures that the screen does not accidentally open in high winds or other unexpected circumstances.
The Mirage Retractable Screen super magnet is also corrosion-resistant. Finding rusty magnets on our competitors’ year-old doors is not uncommon. Your Mirage Retractable Screen Door will fare better.
Mirage San Diego has tested many physical latching mechanisms. We found that the Mirage Retractable Screen super magnet is easy to use, performs well, and is reliable (as it has no moving parts). It is the best latching system we have found.
Internal Brass Bushings
The central shaft of Mirage Retractable Screens rotates in a silicon brass bushing allowing it to withstand hundreds of thousands of cycles without wearing of crucial parts. Our competitors use plastic bushings that do not endure prolonged usage. Mirage Retractable Screens regularly tests screens through 250,000 cycles. Yes, you read correctly… a quarter-million cycles!
Mirage Retractable Screens treats all internal moving parts with a long-lasting, temperature resistant lubricant to allow smooth movement while preventing corrosion and annoying squeaks.
Mirage retractable screens may be optionally outfitted with a soft closer. The Mirage Soft Closer only engages when retracting, so no additional friction is introduced when extending your Mirage screen. Additionally, the tension of the Mirage Soft Closer is externally adjustable for accessible maintenance.
The Mirage deep track helps to stops screen blow-out. It holds the screen in place during windy conditions.
Teflon guides & handles
Mirage Retractable Screens manufactures it’s guides using Teflon, which naturally provides a long-lasting low-friction operation of our retractable screens. Our competition requires monthly application of a silicone spray. Invariably, such maintenance is neglected and their products wear prematurely.
