AtoZ’s roll down screens are manufactured with Phifer Suntex or Textaline fabrics in several colors and available with both 80% or 90% fabric densities. Most customers find that the 90% density is most beneficial for their application.
Manually operated with a beaded nylon chain and high-quality clutch assembly, our roll down screens offer years of trouble-free use! With such a simple design, there is little to break, and nothing to maintain. Impervious to harsh outside conditions, roll down screens are made to withstand Mother Nature’s abuse while providing you with cool, comfortable shade.

Even though they have installed an expensive patio cover, many customers discover that as the sun begins setting low on the horizon, the harsh heat and glare get beneath the edge of the patio cover and prevent them from comfortably enjoying their oasis. By installing roll down screens, you’ll find yourself spending more time enjoying your patio the way you thought you would, without the hassle of the glare and heat. And besides… your guests and family will thank you!
Unlike patio umbrellas or other shading devices that take up precious patio floor space, roll down screens are rolled up neatly and stored unnoticed out of the way when not in use. But when the sun comes lurking… they’re an instant way to create a cool, shaded oasis to enjoy! If you aren’t spending as much time on your back patio because of the heat and glare, consider roll down screens as a solution to your back patio blues!
You’ll be amazed by how clearly you can see into the yard as you sit protected by the roll down’s cool shade. In addition, if your back yard needs a little privacy, roll down screens are an attractive looking way to keep prying eyes from looking into your home. Maintaining your view as well as your privacy is especially important for folks who’s home sits on a golf course or near a public walkway area.
When traditional fixed sunscreens aren’t the solution for your needs, roll down screens can be a viable option. Some customers are reluctant to install traditional sun screens which always cover the window. Roll down sunscreens offer a more flexible solution which allows them to have a sunscreen covering the window only during the part of the day when the sun is bothersome. For all other times, the roll down screens can be rolled up neatly out of the way.
Roll down screens are also an ideal solution for commercial office or storefront applications. If your reception area or offices are affected by the sun’s harsh glare pouring through your windows, AtoZ’s roll down sunscreens are a classy and cost effective solution to cutting down the glare! Your customers and employees will thank you!
Many customers are surprised to learn that AtoZ manufactures our manual roll down screens in-house, thus saving you expensive shipping and handling charges!
AtoZ custom makes all of our roll down screens to fit your needs perfectly! One size fits all does not apply here! Our roll down screens are available in sizes anywhere from one foot wide up to 13 feet wide with a drop as far as 7 ½ feet. Openings wider than 13 feet will require two separate roll downs.
With Screens wider than 8 feet, a built-in counter spring assist clutch is installed. Much like your garage door spring, it makes a large, heavy screen roll up as if it were light as a feather. If you suffer from arthritis or your grip strength is not what it used to be, you may purchase any roll down screen with a spring assist clutch for an additional cost.
To keep the chain neatly against the wall and to prevent choking accidents, beaded chains are most often held at the bottom with a chain safety device.
When rolled up and out of use, the roll down screens are not covered or tucked into any type of cassette or storage device. AtoZ’s roll down screens are made to withstand years of weather without damage or deterioration.
