Centor S4 System

Centor is proud to have been awarded a 'Red Dot: Best of the Best 2019' for the S4 Screen and Shade System. This accolade is the highest awarded by the judging panel of one of the world’s largest design competitions and is reserved for the best products in a category.

The S4 Screen and Shade enables homeowners with large door openings to enjoy the luxury of inside-outside living without the traditional compromises – insects, glare and loss of privacy. Operating with just a fingertip, Centor’s unique load balancing technology allows screens and shades to glide smoothly across the whole door opening to effortlessly stop at any desired position. When not in use, the screen or shade retracts discreetly into the frame removing visual distractions to the view outside whilst also protecting it from damage, dust or dirt. This is especially important for a seasonally used product.

  • Pair with new or existing doors or windows
  • Operates from any height with one hand so the youngest of family members can operate the screen.
  • Screen and shade fabrics are held securely in place by top and bottom tabs, preventing screen blow-out – even in a breeze.
  • The screen and shade are fully retained within the frame on all sides to allow total control of insects, sunlight and privacy. 
  • Screen mesh is available in a choice of different weave styles with no pleats or sliding panels to detract from the view.
  • Luxury shade fabric is available in light-filtering and blackout with a choice of stylish patterns and a range of colours to suit every home.
  • Screens and shades are available in four configurations to suit any home 
  • The durable aluminium frame can be painted in any colour for full personalisation.
  • Can be mounted on the inside or outside – drainage holes are added to the sill for externally mounted systems. 
  • Sill cover is quick and easy to remove to make cleaning trouble free
  • Backed by a 5-year limited warranty

* Fabric widths are established by fabric thickness. Variations in fabric thickness may mean the maximum width cannot be achieved. In these cases we offer an alternative colour or fabric type or an extended lead time to allow fabric to be resupplied from the mill. All screens over 5910mm in width require frame joiners to support the head and sill.

Please download the S4 technical flyer to learn about the maximum width for the fabric of your choice.

Two screens or shades (in the same fabric option), which meet at any point along the opening.

A single screen that extends from the left side (when viewed from the outside) of the frame to cover the opening with no jamb against the glass corner. Pairs with corner fixed-lite windows. XO also available.
Insect screens

Screen mesh is available in a choice of different weave styles with no pleats or sliding panels to detract from the view:

Standard weave
Standard weave
Keeps insects like moths, flies and mosquitoes outside, while standing the test of time with a durable polyester/PVC mesh construction.
Tight weave
Tight weave
Made from the same durable material as our standard weave but features a smaller aperture to protect homeowners against tiny insects like midges.
Shades

Centor shades come in three forms, available in a choice of fade-resistant colours to suit any internal or external palette.

Centor shade system - light-filtering
Light-filtering
This translucent blind material is hard wearing and allows sufficient light to penetrate and still illuminate your room, but eliminates glare and provides a high degree of privacy.
Centor shade system - blackout
Blackout
Our no-leak blackout shade totally excludes light and provides complete privacy when drawn. Ideal for bedrooms and home cinema (you can even use the white version as a projection screen!)
Sun-filtering
Perfect for reducing glare, solar heat gain and fading. Can be fitted internally or externally but a popular choice for outside given its hard-wearing, easy-clean qualities.

Installation

S4 can be specified for new doors or windows, of any brand or composition; it can also be retrofitted to existing doors. Its 44mm sill height allows S4 to be easily aligned with finished floor level. The system can be easily installed on the inside or outside of the opening. Sill drainage holes are provided for systems positioned on the outside to allow water to flow out of the door drainage. The drainage holes are not visible and won't block holes in the existing door sill.
