Sliding doors are the most common type of door found in the living area of Dubai villas. In older homes, these types of doors were commonly fitted with a cheap sliding fiberglass insect screen. Anyone who’s lived in a villa with these types of screens knows that they simply don’t last. In fact they are so bad that most new developments don’t even include insect screens on new villas. This recently occurred in the Dubai Hills community amongst others.
Many homeowners who have sliding insect screensfind common issues with them and the main problem with the sliding screen is that the mesh tears or pulls out of its frame. Many times they break because the material used for manufacturing them becomes brittle due to harsh Dubai weather. However, there’s a way that can be used to increase the life of sliding doors and avoid constant breaking. We can simply install new pleated sliding screens or stainless steel mesh sliding screen doors which last for years.
Mechanism of sliding doors and safety screens
When sliding doors and safety screens combine, they form the perfect door combination. A normal glass sliding door consist of two panels placed parallel to each other. The bottom of each panel is held inside two tracks which contain rollers that are used for sliding the panels. The mechanism of sliding doors is known as sliding door gear. A normal sliding door consists of simple adjusting screws, installed at the bottom of the door ends. Turning these screws lowers or raises the rollers. The screws can be turned clockwise to check whether the sliding doors work properly or not. When there is a shortage of space, the sliding doors can be a perfect choice for installation instead of the normal hinged or French doors. A sliding insect screen however is custom made to fit the exact door size opening and is adjusted during installation. It does not have any roller adjustments which may fail over time so they are designed for long term durability.
Modern safety sliding screens are taking the world of mosquito nets by storm. The safety screens when installed along with sliding doors can be used more often for creating a barrier between your home and the outside area. These screens are so robust and long-lasting that they will prove to be stronger and better protection than any other type of door.
