Brookings, South Dakota – January 9, 2018 - Larson Manufacturing today announced growing consumer interest in its recently introduced Scenix Porch Windows with ScreenAway™ Retractable Screens.  As homeowners and builders acknowledge a gap in the market for better porch enclosure options, the newly launched Scenix product is gaining popularity in new construction, home additions and screen replacement projects.

A recent market research report by the NAHB stated that over 65% of new homes started in 2016 included a porch. In summary, this equals over 500,000 new homes built with porches last year.  

“Scenix is exactly what many of my customers have been looking for,” commented Shawn Knapp of Shawn’s Custom Homes of Brookings.  “Many own lake homes and/or have invested in property with a beautiful view yet they don’t have a good way to really enjoy the outdoors from the comfort of their home. Scenix offers an impressive view and the built-in screen makes it super easy to adjust airflow, based on the weather.  The end result with Scenix is truly a transformation from a traditional porch.”

An industry-first in outdoor living – Scenix porch windows with Screen Away® retractable screens,  LARSON recognized a customer need for ways to extend the porch and patio season and enjoy the outdoors, protected from bugs, weather and other unpleasant elements.


Featuring the company’s innovative Screen Away technology, a Scenix porch offers seasonal 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.
