An Effortless Sliding Screen for Your French Doors

Custom-made to fit your opening right the first time. 

Many French door manufacturers do not offer a screen for their doors, so the StowAway™ screen is a perfect solution for screening off these doorways. The greatest advantage of StowAway™ screen doors is the ability to utilize your screen when you want an outdoor, open atmosphere while also having a neat, clean area the screens slide into when your doors are shut.

Your French doors were likely strategically placed in your home to take advantage of a high-traffic area or showcase a deck or patio’s great view. Maybe you live on a golf course, lake, or have a peaceful woodsy area and these are best viewed and experienced with open French doors. Add retractable French screen doors to these doorways and you can have a clear view with insect and sun protection. Slide the screens back in their housing when not in use and you get the best of your French doors when you want it!

The StowAway™ product for French doors smoothly slides across your doorway and meet in the middle of your opening, creating an open outside feel. The screen rolls up effortlessly inside the compact housing that blends in vertically on each side of the French doors. Enjoy the natural ventilation from anywhere in your home with the elegant option of StowAway™ screens.

The screens glide smoothly on a track at the bottom and top of your doorway, blending in with the doorway, appearing to be “invisible screens”. The screens latch to the other screen in the center with magnets. The StowAway™ is pushed easily by hand and offers a slow close reaction, if desired, to allow the screen to close slowly instead of snapping back into the housing case. The screen can span 4′ wide and 9′ tall for each doorway. StowAway™ screens come with a lifetime limited warranty.

The retractable French door screens are sold through your local dealer who sell, install, and service the screens. The approximate turnaround time from your dealer placing the order to the dealer receiving your screen is just 2 weeks.

The housing or casing for the screen is small in design, measuring less than 2″ wide and is made of powder coated aluminum. It can be made with a real wood veneer wrap, which can be stained or painted to match any woodwork. The screen types available are the Standard (strong, stiffened, fiberglass mesh), Noseeum (extra-fine mesh provides protection from the smallest insects), Solar (blocks more UV rays than standard), and Pet (heavy-duty resists damage caused by pets).

I couldn’t find anything else that would offer such a clear, open view. Every other product couldn't meet the span without creating a divider and hindering the view. I love them.
