Using screens for modern windows and patio doors is an easy way to create functional and fashionable indoor/outdoor spaces. For homes that require high-quality protection from bugs and shade from the sun and UV rays, screens become a must-have window accessory. In this article, we’ll present the essential function of window screens and our approach to effective ventilation and creating functional window and patio doors.

Main benefits of using screens for big windows and patio doors

Window screens have become essential to modern homes, providing many benefits that enhance the quality of life. For many homeowners still on the fence about investing in quality window or patio door screens, we prepared a list of their main benefits:

Enhanced Privacy

Window screens can significantly increase the privacy of your living space. They are designed in such a way that you can see out, but others cannot see in. This feature is particularly beneficial if privacy is a high priority for you. The mesh material used in window screens comes in different tints, allowing you to choose the level of privacy you desire. With window screens, you can enjoy natural light without compromising your personal space.

Insect Protection

One of the most appreciated benefits of window screens is their ability to keep out bugs and pests. This feature allows you to enjoy the summer breeze without the annoyance of insects, enhancing your outdoor experience. Some homeowners take it a step further and create entire screen rooms with a roof overhead and large screen panels on each side, providing a bug-free sanctuary for relaxation and enjoyment. With window screens, you can savor the fresh air and outdoor views without worrying about unwelcome visitors.

Weather Protection and Comfort

Window screens act like sunglasses for your home. They protect you from harmful UV rays and shield your belongings from sun damage. Moreover, they can help maintain a comfortable temperature in your home by blocking out heat and sunlight. Some window screens come with a retractable vinyl screen, which can provide additional protection from the weather and help contain heat or air, keeping rain or snow out. With window screens, you can create a more pleasant and protected living environment all year round.

Energy Savings

Window screens can contribute to energy savings in your home.

Shading your home from the sun can help cool down your interior, reducing the need for air conditioning and thus helping your HVAC system run more efficiently. By letting in the cool breeze while blocking out the heat, window screens enable you to reduce energy consumption and lower your utility bills, benefiting both your wallet and the environment.

Seamless Outdoor/Indoor Space

If you want to enjoy the outdoors without leaving your living room space – patio door screens are a perfect choice. They provide a seamless indoor and outdoor living blend, giving you the best of both spaces. You can design your area according to your needs and preferences. With patio door screens, you can create an inviting transition between your indoor and outdoor areas, allowing for easy access and expanded living space for entertainment and relaxation.

Window screens offer a range of benefits that can enhance your living experience, from increasing privacy and protection to saving energy and expanding usable space. When considering window screens, evaluating your needs and options is essential to maximize your investment. With the right window screens, you can transform your home into a comfortable, efficient, and aesthetically pleasing sanctuary for all seasons.

Window and patio door screens for modern homes – HST Horizon

One of the biggest complaints regarding installing windows screens is the requirement of drilling holes in the window frame. This impacts window thermal and soundproof performance and permanently damages the frame. With our lines of high-quality uPVC windows like PAVA, WINERGETIC, and PIXEL – we designed an easy-to-apply screen system. Adjustable metal clips are used to mount the screen to the window without damaging the frame. Thanks to this installation method, screens are easy to dismantle for cleaning (or when you want to dismantle them for winder) and an excellent option for effective protection against insects.

Screen types also apply to OKNOPLAST patio door systems like the HST Horizon. Please look at the video presentation from our expert Cody, who demonstrates how we designed a sliding patio door with an exciting twist on the screening system.

Now you can get the full benefit and comfort of the lift and slide door system and reliable protection against insects and heat.

What’s amazing about the HST Horizon system is that the screen hides entirely in the frame – you don’t have to obstruct your view. You can open the sliding doors, put a plated screen, and leave it for the day. This solution is perfect for homeowners with vast and biodiverse gardens. It works perfectly with modern homes where the barrier between the living room and outdoor garden is seamless.

Effective ventilation systems to maximize the airflow

Effective ventilation systems, known as effiAIR, are a concept for modern windows and patio doors. They start with a design emphasizing air circulation inside the frame through micro openings. Using effiAIR systems is very beneficial to any indoor space. It ensures the circulation of fresh air, even when the windows are closed.

Let’s take a kitchen as an example – this is a space for culinary enthusiasts and a place where a lot of steam and scents mix. With effiAIR windows like PAVA or PIXEL, you will avoid bad smells going deep into the walls and paint and ensure proper fresh air circulation.

This system effectively protects against moisture and mildew on the bathroom walls. Shower or bath can cause high moisture levels, creating ideal conditions for the growth of fungi and mold. Take care of your health and ensure proper ventilation with the effiAIR system.

We could write a lot more about the efficiency of this technology, but the presentation speaks volumes.

If you want windows that impact your home’s design and thermal effectiveness and allow a steady flow of fresh air inside, schedule a personal consultation with one of OKNOPLAST’s experts and learn more about our window and patio door systems.
