Retractable Screen Porch Windows from LARSON Create a Unique Home Addition

Brookings, South Dakota – December 1, 2017
– Larson Manufacturing today announced an affordable new option for homeowners seeking creative ways to add extra space for entertaining family and friends.  The company’s newly launched Scenix retractable screen porch windows make it easy to convert a screen porch or enclose an existing porch into a seasonally comfortable space to accommodate company.


“We love having all of our children and grandchildren home at Christmas,” commented Mary Beth from Stillwater, Minnesota.  “During the holiday season, however, we face the annual dilemma of how to accommodate so many people in our small home.  This year, we discovered Scenix and it is truly the perfect solution.  We have our porch decked out with a tree and lots of lights and it’s a great place for the tree and gift-opening and a special space for the kids to play.”


As homeowners seek affordable ways to add onto their homes, they often consider ways to make use of the backyard deck or patio.  Yet, traditional porch screens aren’t sufficient in most parts of the country.  LARSON recognized a customer need for ways to extend the porch and patio season so they created an industry-first in outdoor living – Scenix porch windows with Screen Away® retractable screens as a way for homeowners to add space and enjoy the outdoors, protected from the elements.


Since its introduction earlier this year, the innovative retractable screen Scenix porch windows from LARSON have quickly gained attention among builders and homeowners for new construction, home additions and screen replacement projects.


Featuring the company’s innovative Screen Away technology, a Scenix porch offers versatility, comfort and convenience.  LARSON invented Scenix as a new way for homeowners to extend the porch and patio season. The patented Screen Away technology features a built-in, retractable screen that simply disappears into the frame, eliminating the need for seasonal window storage. The dual-sash window is easy-to-operate, revealing top and bottom screens for optimal ventilation.


Available in multiple colors and a wide range of standard and custom sizes - up to six feet wide and eight feet tall, Scenix is the largest retractable screen porch window on the market today.


Scenix porch windows with retractable screens are the ideal solution for replacing traditional porch screens, enclosing an open patio or for a new construction project. Available in white, sandstone or brown finish and a wide range of sizes, customers can easily personalize their Scenix porch by selecting standard or custom window sizes and a matching LARSON storm door.

The innovative porch window product is available today through participating LARSON retailers. Go to to watch an inspirational video on how Scenix transforms porch and patio living.
