Centor unveils door with fully retractable screens and shades
Centor's 200 Series integrated door collection for large exterior openings from three to 24 feet combines door, screen, and shade into one system, introducing a new category of "integrated doors."
Designed for all architectural styles, the doors feature screens and shades that fully retract into doorframes. Available in a variety of configurations, including two- and three-panel sliding patio, folding, double-swing, and single doors.
"Traditionally, doors are an inherent compromise," said Centor Managing Director Nigel Spork. "Big doors have great views, but little privacy. Heavy drapes keep houses warm, but make rooms feel small, and who wants to look out through insect screens or have hardware blocking views? The best solution is to design a door system as a whole, not as individual components like panels, shades or hardware."
From inside the home, Centor provides a clean look atypical of existing doors. Narrow stiles maximize the doors' glass opening, hinges are concealed, and intermediate locks are hidden from view. The Centor 200 Series comes in custom sizes and high-quality aluminum (customizable to any color) and timber finishes (clear alder, Douglas fir, mahogany and primed wood), screens in two mesh options and shades in 12 fabric selections. Aluminum wood-clad door options provide the beauty of wood on the inside, with the durability and low maintenance of aluminum on the outside.
The integrated doors come standard with screens, shades, patented weatherproofing, and top-hung hardware, which allow the doors to operate easily, and they are compatible with all forms of wall construction.
