Phantom Screens Q & A
What are the main benefits of Phantom Screens?
Phantom Screens' screen solutions maintain the design of the building, provide privacy, insect protection, and better ventilation, plus manage solar light. These retractable screens can also reduce solar heat gain on the inside of the building and decrease energy costs for cooling the building. Phantom Screens provides after sales support — their experienced screen installers and Authorized Distributors are available for service calls and product questions even after the sale has been completed.
What types of applications can Phantom Screens cover?
Phantom Screens provides screen solutions that are custom fit to all types of openings: Legacy and Professional Door Screens cover all door types including patio sliders, in-swing and outswing doors, double-French openings, as well as front doorways. Serene Window Screen is most typically used for insect or solar protection and added privacy on all types of windows including double-hung, casement, and tilt 'n turn applications. Motorized Executive Screen is designed for large openings including covered verandas, porches, and floor-to-ceiling picture windows. Manual Infinity Screen is ideal for screening folding wall systems and oversized openings such as patios and verandas without limitations to the span or width of the opening. Manual Distinction Screen is suitable for screening large openings and oversized doors in high traffic areas (in-swing and out-swing doors, single and double oversized doors, and other large openings).
What are the main parts of a retractable screen?
A retractable screen consists of four main components: Mesh — the material comes in a wide variety of colors, fabrics, and materials depending on whether insect or solar protection is required. Housing — the mesh is stored within extruded aluminum housing when retracted, along with the tube and spring or motor mechanism. Phantom uses a combination of low profile components; various finish options including custom coatings, and colormatched fasteners to blend the screens seamlessly into the building structure and décor scheme. Slide bar — the "handle" that brings out the screen when needed or helps it smoothly retract back into the housing when the screen is not in use. Depending on the application the screen may be held in place with a magnet or latch system when in use. Tracks — fastened to the top and bottom of the door frame (or the sides of the frame in the case of a window or Executive), the tracks keep the screen in place when in use.
Phantom Screens screen solutions are suitable for both residential, institutional, and commercial structures — custom homes, multi-family projects (e.g. condominiums), hotels and resorts, restaurants, retail stores, universities, etc.
