An Innovative Retractable Screen Design
The Screen Solutions Plisse (pronounced plee-say) is an innovative retractable screen design that does away with all the complicated springs and bearings used in other retractable screens. The Plisse relies on the simple elegance of pleated screen fabric and operates in much the same way as a pleated blind. As you pull the bar across the opening the pleats open to give you all the protection of any screen system without all the complications.
Dimensions of the Plissé Retractable Screen
The Screen Solutions Plissé (pronounced plee-say) retractable screen for all styles of doors and windows has a modest footprint. You can see the exact dimensions in the diagram to your left.
Bear in mind that the bottom rail, if not counter-sunk or butted up next to an existing, raised threshold, can be a tripping hazard. We suggest our optional threshold adapter if this is the case with your doorway.
Plissé Retractable Screen – Six Signature Colors & More
Each of our retractable screens for doors or windows comes in six standard colors for no additional charge. Our colors options were carefully selected to match most exterior trim finishes.

Can Quality Also Be Affordable? Yes!
We take pride in the quality craftsmanship of each of our Plissé retractable screens: custom building each screen in our Austin, Texas facility as well as quality testing every single unit before it ships.
So how is it that the Plissé style retractable screen can cost half of those other retractable screens out there? Well, we don’t sell in big box retail outlets. We sell direct to the homeowner and a select few dealers. We keep our overhead low and our quality high – then pass the savings on to you.
