September is National Preparedness month. Screenmobile would like to give you a few ways toproperly prepare you and your family. National Preparedness month reminds us to prepare in all areas of life and there are three basic points addressed by the Boston Public Health Commission: Get Ready, Be Safe, Stay Healthy. Screenmobile would like to address the “Be Safe” points of this campaign:
Understanding your surrounding
Keep food and water safe
Learn basic health skills
Access official information
As part of “understand your surroundings”, one aspect is home safety. Window screens are something that need to be secured in your home. Screenmobile would like you to provide with you with some quick tips in order to help secure windows.Some tips we offer are:
When doing spring cleaning/painting be sure windows are not painted or nailed shut
If you have young children consider having a Guarda window installed. They are a secure window to leave open but have a fire release.
Keep furniture - or anything children can climb - away from windows. Children may use such objects as a climbing aid. Check our child safety section for more information.
Have an escape plan: “Windows provide a secondary means of escape from a burning home. Determine your family's emergency escape plan and practice it. Remember that children may have to rely on a window to escape in a fire. Help them learn to safely use a window under these circumstances."(screenmobile.com)
Another part of understanding your surrounding is your environment regarding animals and insects. They can carry disease and by making sure that your loved animals are up to date on their shots can help stop the spread diseases and insects. If there is an animal that is infected to be sure to have Animal Control come in and take care of the animal instead of putting you or your family at risk.
Keeping your food and water safe is also a very important part of National preparedness month. If you do not keep your food or water safe, your survival is put at risk. Drinking water can be compromised by bursting pipes or floods. To make sure your water is safe to drink click here
Lastly, learn basic first aid skills and have access to official information. Learning basics health skills can potentially save you or your loved ones life. Basic CPR and First Aid classes are offered very regularly by the American Heart Association nationwide. Accessing official information is crucial in an emergency. Having information before and during an emergency can be very beneficial for your safety. Usually, your local City Hall is the place to obtain your emergency plan information. They can also let you know what to do during an emergency.
None of us want an emergency to happen but unfortunately they are happening too often and we at Screenmobile want you to be prepared in the best way possible. Please be sure to visit our website or talk to your service tech. They will be able to help you with any questions you have regarding window screen safety.

Everyone likes to open their windows and doors and let that fresh air in, but some have a concern for the safety associated with leaving a screen product to protect us. We have a solution, The Guarda Security Door. Created by C.R. Laurence, this door is the ultimate security door.
In its description itself it gives away the type of door you are looking at, security. However the difference with this security door is that you don’t feel like you are looking out a jail cell with the bars across, you have an unobstructed view. The “screen” material is grade meshtech Powder Coated Stainless steel security mesh. Which looks like a screen fabric it keep the bugs out and vent the house but it is a Stainless Steel instead of a Fiberglass. This feature doesn't allow it to be cut through with a knife or kick in the screen. The frame comes in a variety of colors to match your house.
It is also very durable, making for those who have family members or friends who accidentally walk through screen doors very difficult to do so. In areas where there is a lot of wind Guarda doors and windows are good to have on as they can withstand severe storms and still be in tact. The frame is secured to the frame of the house with 3-5 inch long screws causing for a very secure and solid anchoring to the house structure. The exposed screws are then covers with a screw cap to prevent any tampering. Also that mesh is very secure and can withstand quite a bit of force from flying objects. There has been individuals involved in martial arts that have tried to kick the door down and are unable to do so.
Another wonderful feature is the multipoint lock system for unbeatable security. When its locked its really secure.
Monty from California a proud Gaurda front and back swinging door owner can shead some light on this topic: “Let me tell you about our newest (we already have one on our front door) Gaurda door installed on our back swinging door. We absolutely love it. “For the first time in over 40 years we left our back door open all night because for the first time ever we felt secure enough to do so.” The reward was that the next morning our entire house was filled with clean cool fresh air instead of air that we and our two cats shared every night. Even the cats seemed to rejoice in the new fresh feel and aroma of the naturally chilled air engulfing our entire home. “This has got to be one of our greatest home improvements projects ever.” When measured from luxury versus cost we consider it priceless and would highly recommend it to everybody, especially if they have and love pets, no matter what kind of pets.”
There are some negative aspects associated with this door system.
One being the cost, starting anywhere between $1200-1400 for a standard door and $300-500 for a standard window. for comaprison a Aluminum security doors run between $600-900 and is more of a safety door that a true security door. A wrought Iron security door custom made will coat between $600-1200 depending on the style. It can get expensive to replace every door and window you could possibly leave open.
They are all custom made so it you have to wait for the product. Depending on the season manufacturing time will vary. Most doors or windows take 2-4 weeks but may run longer based on demand and manufacturing capabilities. However you have to wonder is there really a price you can put on you or your families security.
Another is the key to unlock the door cannot be duplicated like your house key can, however your service tech should supply you with a code for the door which you can call in and get a new one replaced, but losing that key means you could potentially be locked out of your house and not having an easy way in.
Lastly, the installation, some customers don’t realize what needs to be done. It is not a free standing door, part of its great security system is that you can just take it off like other doors. Once Its bolted to the frame of the house it will require a professional to remove making it difficult to move the door if desired. Its really not a do it yourself project. From measuring to installation it take a Professional. That being said some customers want to install themselves, have complained with thedetailed installation process.
As you can see there are pros and cons to this product but if you think it is something you could use at your home or business please contact your local Screenmobile for a FREE estimate.

You remember the roll-up blinds of yesterday, but do you know how their technology has been redesigned? Are you aware that this improved technology is now being used on screen doors? It is and home owners absolutely love them.
Enjoy the sounds of nature and breathe clean, fresh air inside your home. A new retractable screen door lets the gentle breezes into your home and also adds beautiful curb appeal. Screens can retract into the slim tube or cassette at the side of your door frame. And if you are the distinguished type that wants perfect functionality and uncompromising beauty, you can even have designer retractable screen doors, made to your specifications. Retractable screen doors are designed to fit almost any household doorway or window opening as well as in-swinging or out-swinging single doorways, and double French doorways. Even sliding patio doorways can easily be fitted for a retractable screen door to provide the perfect contemporary look you are sure to enjoy.
Retractable screen doors utilize similar technology as the old roll-up blinds, but they have been updated and advanced to work vertically or horizontally. The issue of sticking and stopping where you don’t want them to has been solved.
These screen doors have proven themselves to be extremely dependable. You won’t come home to find that your dog has run through it because you can have any type of screen installed in them that you want. Don’t let the fact that you have a dog or cat keep you from having the screen doors that you desire. Install a pet screen in them. If you have a problem with bugs or ticks, which can carry lyme disease, just install the standard screen to keep all of those unwanted insects out of your house. You have many options and any Screenmobile employee would be happy to talk to you about your specific situation.
