Monarch Maxi Retractable Insect Screens

Monarch Maxi FAQ

Can the screen be stopped at any point along the opening or must it fully retract like “Roller” screen systems?

Due to the unique tensioning system the screen can stop at any position. There are no braking systems or excessive force required to operate or stop the screen.

Is Monarch Maxi a “Retracting Roller” type screen?

No, and as such does not have some of the inherent problems associated with “Roller Retractable” screen systems. Monarch Maxi is a combination of our unique retractable pleated mesh and a stacking system. As such the screen is less prone to screen blowout. The screen is gently maneuvered into the desired position and does not require a braking system to stop the screen.

Can I choose which direction the door can slide?

Yes, Monarch Maxi allows you the option of sliding the screen from either side or bi parting from the center of the opening.

Do I have to slide each sash individually?

No, you have the option of each sash operating independently or you can choose to connect nominated screen sashes together using our optional sash connection bracket. You can choose to link all the sashes or just a few.

Does the screen meet the necessary fire prevention requirements for bush fire prone regions?

No, this is a screen not a fire resistant mesh.

If the kids or family pets damage the mesh can it be replaced?

Yes, all the client has to do is tell us the code that is fixed to the head guide of the door and new mesh can be made to the exact size originally supplied.

Is the replacement mesh easy to install?

Yes, the Maxi system has been design with a mesh replacement cartridge that is easily removed and replaced. All you have to do is call us and quote the “lot Number” printed on the sticker located on the top rail and we can arrange a new mesh cartridge.

If the mesh stretches or becomes loose can I adjust it tight again?

Yes, the installation and maintenance instructions show how to tension the mesh; it is not difficult and only takes a few minutes.

How do I clean my Screen?

Use a feather duster or soft dry sponge and wipe the mesh in a vertical direction, cleaning can also be achieved using a light detergent and water mixture but can be messy.

Is Monarch Maxi totally insect proof?

Monarch Maxi offers superior insect protection over other types of screen systems that have been specifically designed for use with French Doors or large openings. No insect screen is totally insect- proof.

What do I do if the mesh is subject to blowout/rumbling?

Simply open and close the door fully 1-2 times and the mesh will realign itself back into position

Can my Monarch Maxi be adjusted in Size?

No, Monarch Ex is custom-manufactured to suit each installation; the system adjusts +/- 15mm in width and +/- 15mm in height. • What do the small plastic clips do at the top and bottom of the mesh? The clips retain the mesh in position resisting wind blow out.
