Retractable screen doors
Retractable screen doors can provide the same look and feeling of a French door. There are a few drawbacks of retractable screen doors, one of these being the fact that is quite dangerous for children and pets, as it tends to slam shut because of the magnetic strips. Also they can be damaged very easily by pets, and the tracks aren’t very durable.
You can protect your children and pets by slowing the slamming shut effect of the door. You should also install a mechanisms that stops them from closing. You should also buy a screen door that is made from a scratch resistant material.
The tracks need to be deep in order to be more resistant and for the doors to be sturdier than swinging doors. Install a wear strip to add extra support and prevent friction. This will help the tracks from wearing too fast.
