What material is your window?

There are two retractable window screen options from Phantom. Whether you have PVC or aluminum windows, or beautiful custom wood windows – there’s a screen that will be perfect for you.

What type of window do you have?

Whatever your window type - single-hung, double-hung, casement, sliding, awning, or tilt & turn windows - you got it, we screen it. So go on. Open your windows. Welcome the breeze, and kick out the bugs.

Single-hung windows

Letting in the fresh air is easy breeze-y, so let the outdoors in, but keep the bugs out.

Casement windows

Push that window wide open and let the fresh air in, without the bugs.

Sliding windows

Slide to the right, now slide to the left. Open the window and breathe in the fresh air.

What are the measurements?

Your screen will be custom-built to order for a perfect fit.

What's your color?

At Phantom, we take being invisible seriously. We want your screen's casing to blend so seamlessly into your window frame that you forget it's there. (Until you need it, anyway.)

The way these colors look on your screen may differ from the coated samples or installed product. Having trouble choosing? Talk to your local expert to see true color swatches.

What type of mesh is best?

Your screen's mesh gives you a surprising amount of control over what comes in and out of your space. Choose a tighter or looser weave for your ideal combination of air, light, heat, and critters.

Insect mesh

Whether it's horseflies or no-see-ums, our insect meshes come in a variety of weaves to keep out whatever's bugging you. It's also the most open type of mesh, so it provides more ventilation and visibility while reducing up to 55% of UV rays.
