Q: How do I care for my INVISA screens?
A: Very simply! A key benefit to our customized screen designs is their ability to self-protect from the elements. The tracks that run along the top and bottom do need to remain reasonably clear of dirt and debris to operate at optimal performance. Occasional lubrication of the tracks with a silicone-based lubricant is recommended. (Oil based lubricants are discouraged as they attract dirt)
