Screen Door Buying Guide


Screen doors are all about creating a safe, comfortable and secure living environment for you and your family.

Functionality and performance are key design points, but at Doors Plus we also consider convenience, flexibility and style to create a range of different solutions to suit your home and lifestyle.

Whether you’re looking to add a screen to your front or exterior doors to enhance your home security, or you’ve got some tired old screen doors that are in desperate need of replacement, we’ve got perfect screen door buying guide for you.

NuBreeze Safety Screen Doors

If you’re looking for a practical and versatile solution that allows you to leave your doors open and enjoy a light and airy house, without being invaded by bugs, our NuBreeze screen doors are the answer.

The aluminium frame surrounds a Duraview flyscreen mesh that will let in the breeze while keeping out flies and creepy crawlies.

For extra performance at any size, you can choose to upgrade to Secura-mesh and include a bug strip, and the optional triple locking mechanism gives you maximum peace of mind.

Between a range of cast grill designs and colour options, you can choose the screen door type that suits your style and your home.

Our Nu Breeze range can be installed in single or double hinged options, while selected designs are available as a sliding screen, so you can use the sleek black handle to slide your doors smoothly to one side to open.

This makes them a versatile choice for doors all around the exterior of your home, whether at the front, into a side laundry, or onto a patio or garden at the back.

Supplied with a door closer with the hinged options, you can be sure that your NuBreeze safety screen won’t be accidentally left open as family members come and go.

Your screen doors are made to measure, and our team will deliver and provide the installation for you as well, assuring an outstanding fit and finish.
