The Southern Star Group provides screen options for the majority of our Southern Star aluminium and Canterbury timber door ranges. Keeping pests out of the home is made easy with our custom screens for doors, even bifolds and stacking sliding doors, with options such as pleated and retractable screens, traditional fly doors, heavy duty and safety screen doors; and a range of mesh choices such as aluminium, fiberglass, stainless steel and pet mesh.
Screens for Southern Star Aluminium Doors
The Group’s beautiful and practical pleated screen for bifold and stacking sliding doors has been designed specifically for very large openings. Offering smooth and effortless operation, the pleated screen means optimal enjoyment of the outdoors and, here in Australia, where the dreaded mossie and other annoying pests can make indoor/outdoor living and entertaining unpleasant, it is especially good news. These new, innovative screens are very lightweight, easy to operate and allow you to open up a large area and have it screened where, previously, screens were not available. Bifold and Sliding Stacker Doors are most commonly used in the alfresco area at the rear of the home and can expand your indoor space into an outdoor room. Now, with the pleated screen solution for these doors, they become even more effective, functional and practical. The pleated lightweight screen can be up to 4.5 metres wide, operates from one side and can be pulled out horizontally. Two meeting screens can span up to 9metres wide and they can also be used on corner units with no need for a corner post. The pleated screen allows you to open up a whole room with a bifold or sliding stacker door and screen it, providing a natural barrier from annoying insects whilst leaving views unobstructed. The pleated screen is easy to install and can be used equally well in renovation projects as well as new homes.Standard Flyscreen DoorSouthern Star's standard flyscreen doors come with fibreglass mesh which is made of woven fiberglass yarn coated with PVC to make it waterproof, rust proof, non-combustible, stain resistant and easy to clean. This type of mesh works to exclude flies, bees, wasps, mosquitoes and other insects. Aluminium mesh is available also as an option as is Pet mesh. Aluminium mesh is suited to coastal and bushfire prone areas while Pet mesh is stronger than fibreglass mesh and is ideal for high traffic areas. Your choice of mesh will be reliant on the application, ease of installation, potential for abuse or accidental damage, as well as environmental considerations, desired life expectancy and aesthetics.
Heavy Duty Screen Door
Southern Star's Heavy Duty sliding screen doors come with a more robust and sturdy frame which provides more security and is ideal for high traffic areas where your screen door is subject to more wear and tear. The Heavy Duty sliding screen door comes with fibreglass, aluminium and pet mesh, as well as Alu-Gard. Alu-gard mesh is manufactured using strong, non-corrosive, black powder coated aluminium and is designed to repel even the most determined intruder.
Safety Screen Door
Southern Star's Safety sliding screen doors come with a more robust and sturdy frame which provides more security and is ideal for high traffic areas where your screen door is subject to more wear and tear. The Safety sliding screen door comes with an aluminium grill to provide extra security, and can be made with fibreglass, aluminium and pet mesh, as well as Alu-Gard. Alu-gard mesh is manufactured using strong, non-corrosive, black powder coated aluminium and is designed to repel even the most determined intruder.
Screens for Canterbury Timber Doors
Similar to our aluminium doors options, our Canterbury Timber Stacking Sliding and Bifold doors also have the pleated screen option which is suitable for new homes or renovation projects. Designed specifically for large openings, and with the all of the benefits mentioned above, your indoor/outdoor living with Canterbury Timber doors can be stylish, comfortable, effortless and insect free!
Retractable Flat Screen
Timber bifold doors also can be teamed with the Canterbury Windows Retractable Flat Screen which is smooth to operate and can be opened and closed with a touch of a finger. Unique Load Balancing Technology (LBT) frees the screen of heavy springs and latches, instead it uses only magnets and pulleys. The screen slides horizontally along its track until it comes to a smooth stop and, when not in use, slides back into its concealed housing. "Tight Technology" ensures that the mesh is always at its optimum tension, avoiding creasing, sagging and tearing, and if the screen is bumped out of its track by wind or contact, the screen will automatically rest itself by retracting back into the cavity.
Timber Framed Sliding Screen Doors
Canterbury sliding timber-framed flyscreens come with fibreglass or aluminium mesh. Fibreglass mesh is made of woven fibreglass yarn coated with PVC to make it waterproof, rust proof, non-combustible, stain resistant and easy to clean. This type of mesh works to exclude flies, bees, wasps, mosquitoes and other insects. Aluminium mesh is suited to coastal and bushfire prone areas.
