When insect screens come to mind for most New Zealanders, it’s the traditional security door combo with wavy aluminium bars that will be pictured. However, this kind of door screen doesn’t work in situations where indoor-outdoor flow from the living room to the outdoor entertainment area is important.
With the outdoor entertainment area of contemporary homes becoming more and more of a focal point in housing design, it's natural to want to have easy access to living and kitchen areas.
What are the options when the traditional insect screen won’t cut it? The Venette Retractable Pleated Mesh Screen is the answer. Aesthetically pleasing, functionally simple. The Venette Screen brings together European parts and unique Japanese mesh into a product custom made here in New Zealand.
With the ability to span 9.3 metres from one side, and up to 3m high, the Venette can cover even the most expansive of home entrances.
Opening and closing with ease, the retractable system sets itself apart from other insect screens by not taking up a lot of space when retracted (open). With the user being able to slide open just enough to pass through, it’s excellent for entertainment zones. The Venette also runs on a 3mm thick strip, meaning an entertainer doesn’t have to worry about trip hazards when serving and this also means wheelchair access isn’t a concern. The mesh is reinforced with subtle Kevlar strips to maintain strength even when a hand might accidentally lean on the Venette mesh.
When compromise on aesthetics or function isn’t an option; the Venette Retractable Insect screen is the premium choice for any architecturally designed home.
