Bi-Fold Screens Keep the Bugs Outside

Keep insects at bay with an integrated screen solution!

Keep insects at bay with an integrated screen solution!


Because of our manufacturing experience, Bifold Doors Melbourne has developed a reputation as the leaders in bi-fold screen system integration and installation.


Bi-fold screens answer a common question about the practicality of bi-fold systems: “How do we keen the insets out of the house when the doors are open?” In some areas, this isn’t an issue but as we know in Victoria, flies and mossies are a frequent occurrence and the cleverly-engineered Centor retractable fly-screens we offer address this beautifully!

There is a Centor retractable insect screen for nearly every opening. They discreetly protect openings as wide as 7.6 m, and operate with the same fingertip operation synonymous with all Centor systems. Centor’s screens have been tested to ensure they withstand real-life use, and are backed by a 5-year warranty.

Your home is protected from insects with a screen that’s there when you want it, and not when you don’t.

Centor has solved the problem of how to screen large openings, while preserving your views and your indoor-outdoor space. Centor spent 40,000 hours developing its retractable insect screen with ‘unobtrusive’ as one of its primary goals.

The Centor screen completely retracts into the doorjamb when not in use. The mesh is sheer, and there are no grills or horizontal bars to detract from the view. The screen is barely noticeable when in use, and completely disappears when you don’t need it.

The screens were designed specifically for use with folding doors with the aim of preserving the vistas created by a folding opening.

Fingertip Control

Fingertip Control

Centor screens are a breeze to use, even for small children.

Centor built its reputation for systems that operate with just the touch of a fingertip with its folding door systems. Centor brought this same dedication to ease of use when it developed its screens. One major consideration during the screen’s development was its ‘liveability’. It thus had to pass the ‘barbecue test’ where a person must be able to operate the screen easily, with a tray of drinks or food in hand.

The screen can be opened and shut from any height on the stile, so even small children can operate it. With no crude spring loading to fight against, the screen remains firmly in any chosen position across the opening. This is thanks to Centor’s patent pending Load Balancing Technology™.

Robust Design

Exhaustive testing ensures your Centor screen is up to real-life use.

Centor screens are tough enough to withstand real-life use, backed by a five-year warranty. Exhaustive cycle testing to 400,000 cycles, and exposure to dust, mud, sand and salt spray ensure reliable operation well beyond its five year warranty. The system has also withstood impact testing with a 17 kg punching bag 100 times, as well as thorough poking, prodding and pushing from Centor’s Research and Development staff.

The screen is made from a hardwearing polyester/PVC material that can withstand damage from pets. Tight Technology™ ensures the screen remains straight and tight across the widest spans.

Large Openings

Large Openings

Insect protection for folding door-scale openings up to 3.2 m x 7.6 m.

Centor designed its screens specifically to solve the problem of protecting the large-scale openings created by its folding door systems. With the ability to screen openings up to 7.6 m wide and 3.2 m tall, there are very few openings Centor can’t protect from insects.

Installing screens means you can leave your doors open more often, increasing ventilation and reducing air-conditioner use.
