Lifestyle garage screens raise and lower manually when the homeowner pulls a tab attached to the screen, moving it along a track. The track is separate from the garage door track, but when the screen is down, it rests in the same place the garage door would.
A homeowner keeps the screen raised when not in use, then opens the garage door and lowers the screen into place when necessary. Lifestyle screens feature spring-loaded counterbalances, allowing homeowners to move the screens up and down easily. One model includes a sliding door embedded in the screen, eliminating the need for the homeowner to raise and lower the screen during use.
