Retractable Screen Doors & Windows

Retractable Screen Doors & Windows

The worldwide known original pleated mesh system with caterpillar scorpion tails mechanism comes to you in a re­ducible kit, offered in exclusivity by the Genius Group. Imagine the possibility to have the original Plisse insect screen door system in one or two sizes only , and imagine to be able to adapt one of those two standart sizes to any dimension of doors in a few minutes: here you are.

The Plisse Advance is the first and only original Plisse door available in Kit form, reducible up to 40 cm in the height. The original Plisse features remain all unchanged: the absence of a spring mechanism, the scorpion tails parts and the horizontal cords make this system smooth to operate. The “pull and stop” movement and the flat PVC bottom rail make it fully secure and user friendly. 
The Plisse Advance can be produced in the single side

door and the double side door (up to 4 meters wide openings) 

All the advantages and the features of the Zac insect screens, now available in the face mount version: not just an adaption of the existing ZAC inset mount system, a complete new system thought and designed for those markets where the face mount situation is a standart.

No need of ad­ditional costly and ugly frames. No need of holes and screw in the side guides, the Zac face mount system is a pre-assembled screen that will make every installer happy. Just four screws, one in each comer of the window or door and the screen will be installed.

Again, an easy to assembly and easy to install insect screen system from Gtr.
With the Central Pack option, zigzac is really a perfect solution for sliding door systems. 

Winter solution for vents


My house has round ceiling registers for the air-conditioning system. In the winter, we’d get cold air fall-ing from the registers. Rather than put up with the drafts, I sealed the registers with those clear plastic saucers that you put under flower-pots. I temporarily glued them in place with White Lightning SEASONSeal Clear Removable Weather Stripping ($5). It’s a rubbery sealant that you apply with a caulk gun and peel off in the spring.

Roller sheer shades or Zebra blinds

Zebra Roller Shades,

are the newest trend in European homes. The blinds come with a chain control, as you adjust the chain the stripes of fabric will move past each other and “open and close”, allowing you to control the amount of sunlight in your home. The blinds are discreet, as they can be rolled up and hidden completely into their head box, which also allows you a clear view out of your window.

These shades provide a tranquil and modern look to your home, while providing privacy and light control.

You can pick any design from our collection book.
