“We are excited to offer our innovative safety products to localized hardware stores where store owners can assist customers in meeting their screen door needs,” said Jonathan Clarren, CEO of Aedes Technologies.

Clarren continued, “Not only are we offering our popular replacement kits, we are also offering bulk materials for the rescreening departments of these stores so that customers have the option of having their screens repaired and upgraded with VISISCREEN by a qualified expert.”

Bill Barnhart, founder and principal of RSR emphasized, “VISISCREEN is a game changer for the independent hardware channel. Store owners will be able to offer a solution to a problem while improving their margin dollars.”

Clarren added, “We are currently developing new door safety products, the first of which will be available in Q2 of this year.   We expect these new product offerings to be an attractive and profitable up sale option for our hardware network partners.”

Created by Aedes Technologies, VISISCREEN, the smarter screen door replacement and repair solution, is the first insect screen door mesh product for porch, patio, or deck screen doors that subtly alerts the user of its presence without compromising the highest level of visibility and light.

VISISCREEN  is Made in America of vinyl coated fiberglass with a patented vertical density marker woven into the screen door mesh.  The result is a safer home as the screen remains ‘invisible’ at safe distances, but becomes apparent as you approach it, preventing common accidents like screen door walk-throughs.

In addition to its popular replacement screen mesh line for existing doors, VISISCREEN comes pre-installed in a new line of retractable screen doors — in easily resizable kits or custom cut-to-size options.
