Sliding Patio Screen Doors


Pella Impervia sliding patio screen doors are top-hung, which should provide years of easy operation because dirt and debris will not build up in the head track like it can on bottom tracks.


Remove sliding door screenRemove sliding door screenTo remove the screen door for storage, remove the two screen hanger screws in the top rail of the screen with a Phillips screwdriver (1). Tilt the top toward the interior, then lift up until the bottom guide is out of the sill-frame track (2).

To install the screen door, insert the bottom screen guide in the sill of the frame track. Keep the guide in the frame track, and tilt the top of the screen up against the door panel. Align the two screen hanger screws with the holes in the screen carrier. Turn each screw approximately twice to adjust them. Turn the screw clockwise to raise the screen until the pile insect strip on the exterior of the screen’s top rail touches the screen track. Slide the screen to within 1" of the lock side of the door. The space between the screen and the lock side of the door should be equal from the top to the bottom of the screen. If the space is not equal, adjust the screen hanger screws.

NoteNOTE: Do not adjust too high or too low, or the screen will not slide properly.

Check the screen operation. Ensure the screen operates and latches smoothly.

StopWARNING: Use caution when children or pets are around open windows and patio doors. Screens are not designed to retain children or pets.
