Our product of the week this week is a retractable screen from Sunesta called the Sentry. This captured edge motorized retractable screen gives you the ability to protect your lanai or patio from insects, sun, cold weather, and rain. As with their retractable awnings, Sunesta offers the largest selection of fabric choices in the industry for their shade screens. From standard acrylic fabric, as seen in the photos below, to screens with varying degrees of openness. The openness factor of the fabric you choose depends on the purpose for which you planning on using the screens. A large openness factor keeps bugs out and allows for a lot of airflow, but it doesn’t provide much shade or keep the rain out. A small openness factor provides greater shade, privacy, and more protection from the elements.
All seams in the fabric are precision welded with one of the smallest weld widths in the industry. Among other features, the Sentry retractable screen by Sunesta features a revolutionary floating track system that keeps the screen from binding up when operated in adverse weather conditions. Retractable screens go by many aliases such as privacy screens, solar shades, and roll down screens. Roll down screens are becoming more and more popular due to the increasing number of applications they can be used in. If you currently have drop curtains and are looking for a more versatile product, this retractable screen will solve all your problems.
