About Sloped Sill Wedge Shims
For sloped threshold installations, we do recommended adding optional Sloped Sill Wedge Shims to your order. The Sill Wedge Shims help protect the bottom guide rail and create a safe, smoother finish to your installation. The shims can be used with or without a threshold transition kit.
When ordering your retractable screen door, select the appropriate sloped sill wedge shim option from the pull down menu on the product page as shown below.
*If ordered at the same time as your retractable screen there is no additional shipping charge for the Sloped Sill Wedge Shims.
The bottom guide rail of all our retractable screen doors is roughly 1/2 inch in height and can catch bare feet and small wheeled items. such as baby carriages, etc. So for flat threshold installations, we recommended adding an optional Threshold Transition Kit to your order. The Threshold Transition Kit creates a protective ramped surface between the floor guide rail and the floor for safe and seamless entry and exit. Both the narrow (5/8″ depth) and the medium (1-5/16″ depth) kits include 2 threshold transitions plus the decorative end caps. You get 2 so that, if desired, you can install one on each side of the bottom guide rail. Order the 40-inch long kit for single doors; order the 72-inch long kit for double doors.

Traditional vinyl-coated fiberglass screen door meshes do a good job of keeping insects out, as long as the mesh remains in tact. The problem is they typically do NOT remain in tact. Screen door accidents such as walk-throughs are common occurrences in homes and places of business (hotels, motels, resorts, etc.). That’s because traditional screen mesh products are too invisible, especially when people are distracted due to Inattentional Blindness a/k/a Perceptual Blindness.
Enter VISISCREEN®… Only VISISCREEN® has a patented, visible vertical marker woven into the mesh. The marker subtly alerts the user of its presence without compromising the highest level of visibility and light. The result is that the screen remains “invisible” at safe distances but becomes apparent as you approach it, preventing common accidents like screen door walk-throughs. We like to say VISISCREEN® minimizes liability, while maximizing visibility. “See it when you need to – don’t lose your view!”

Everyone! We sell to end users, homeowners, contractors, businesses, schools, hotels, property management companies and just about anyone you can think of. We currently ship all over the US. If ordering outside the US, please contact us.
The marker should be aligned approximately 12-15 inches from the handle. This is roughly the center of the eyes when a person walks through the patio door opening. The patented visible marker is woven vertically into the mesh. This makes it easily visible at close proximity by anyone no matter their height.
Figures 1 & 2 below show the optimal marker alignment positions for the 3-foot and 4-foot widths respectively.
We offer VISISCREEN in 3 widths:
- 36 inch with one visible marker
