Which screen material do you need?

Your screen's material gives you a surprising amount of control over what comes in and out of your space. Choose a tighter or looser mesh—or even vinyl or blackout fabric—for your ideal combination of air, light, heat, and bugs.

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.

Solar mesh

A tighter mesh provides shade that reduces the sun's glare and heat in your space.

All of our meshes block UV rays to some extent, but solar meshes can block out up to 80% of UV rays, while still allowing airflow. This mesh is a great choice for protecting your textiles and furniture from sun damage.

How should we mount the screen?

Our motorized retractable screens can be recessed from view by integrating with the building structure, or surface-mounted onto existing structures. Choose the mounting option that makes sense for your home.

Recessed Mount

Tucked away and out of sight, a recessed mount is typically done during construction. The entire unit, including tracks and rollers, can be recessed directly into columns, archways, wood, brick, stucco, concrete, stone - you name it!

Brick

Stone

Archways

Columns

Surface Mount

Add some flair to your home - surface mount can be added on to existing structures so you can extend your indoor/outdoor space. Mounted onto columns, wood, concrete or stucco, it can be color matched to the material of your home to maintain your decor.

Under ceiling

Wood beam

Cable Guide

We install most of our motorized screens with a track system that is surface-mounted or recessed into your structure.

But if your project is flanked by open corners, or decorative columns, or you want an exterior mounted solar shade, we'll install your screen using a self-tensioning cable-guide system that doesn't need posts or tracks.

Floor Mount

Dual Rollers

Can't choose between a blackout mesh or an insect screen? Or a clear vinyl wall versus solar shade? Dual rollers combine two different materials in one, so you don't have to choose.

How would you like to control your screens?

Phantom has partnered with Somfy® to provide a wide range of remote controls and sensors to make your life easier! Our motorized screens can be integrated into most home automation systems including Lutron®, Crestron® and smartphone devices. You'll never break a sweat with a motorized screen. Choose whichever control option is easiest for you.

Hand-held remotes

Click a button, and watch your screens roll down. Or up. Then back down again. These hand-held remotes are available in single or multiple channel versions, meaning each channel can be used to operate one screen or a group of screens at the same time.

Wall switch

Don't need another remote? A wall switch is always where you left it. They're completely wireless, battery powered and available in white, black or almond.

Sun and wind sensors

Max out your home's energy efficiency by installing environmental sensors that will lower or retract your screens depending on the temperature. Separately, a wind sensor will automatically retract your screens if the weather is getting gusty.
