A Look At Phantom Motorized Wall Screens

February 14, 2020


When it comes to designing and building custom homes in North Carolina, one feature that our clients often desire in their new home is an extravagant outdoor living space for their family and guests to enjoy. Take one look at our portfolio and you’ll find that many of the homes our team at 4G Design Build has built include covered patio, deck, and other outdoor living features. 

These types of outdoor living spaces are a great way to enjoy the outdoors more, especially in an area like Lake Norman where the weather is pleasant nearly all of the year. Just like when designing the indoor spaces for the homes of our clients, we put a lot of thought and expertise into designing functional outdoor spaces. One thing we often consider when designing covered patios and porches is what features can be added to that will allow our clients to utilize the area more. Motorized Retractable Wall Screens by Phantom Screens are a way to do just that. These motorized screens provide a retractable screen solution, blending indoor features with outdoor spaces without detracting from the aesthetics of your home. In this blog, we’ll take a closer look at Phantom’s Motorized Retractable Wall Screens and the benefits that they offer. 

Motorized Wall Screens: The All-Around Screen Solution For Outdoor Spaces

Over the last few years, outdoor living spaces have exploded in popularity with both home builders and buyers. Homeowners across the U.S. have placed an importance on having porches, covered patios, and decks to extend their living space beyond the indoors – utilizing the exterior landscape of the home. Magazines and house hunting television show often inspire people to create their backyard oasis, relaxing retreat, or that perfect poolside lounging area for entertaining friends and family.

When it comes to increasing comfort and functionality of a covered patio or deck, adding Motorized Retractable Wall Screens by Phantom Screens bring the following benefits to your outdoor space:

Benefit #1: Easy Integration

Nobody wants to add a patio screen to their outdoor living space if it is going to take away from the aesthetics of your home. Phantom’s motorized screens are available in different styles and colors, making it easy to find a solution that fits in perfectly with the existing decor and maintains the integrity of your outdoor design. These screens can either be recessed from view or mounted onto existing screens. What’s more, Phantom Motorized Screens can be integrated into just about any type of architectural style including wood, brick, stucco, and natural stone. 

Benefit #2: Insect Protection

Nothing can ruin your enjoyment of your backyard quite like mosquitos. Especially during the summer months when they are most active, mosquitos are enough of a burden to keep you from enjoying your patio or outdoor living space. With a motorized wall screen, though, you can keep mosquitos and other insects out of your space for a more relaxing time outdoors. Phantom’s wall screens are available in a wide range of mesh options, including insect mesh which is ideal for areas where bugs are a big problem.

Benefit #3: UV Protection

In addition to bugs, one thing you want to protect yourself from when enjoying your outdoor living space is the sun’s UV rays. Not only can the sun make going outside unbearable, especially during the prime of summer, but its harmful UV rays can cause some serious sunburn if you aren’t careful. Fortunately, the sun is no match for Phantom’s motorized patio screens. Especially with the solar mesh screen option, you can reduce the heat and glare of your outdoor living space by up to 75 percent! Plus, with a motorized screen deployed, less sunlight will enter your home, meaning indoor temperatures will stay more consistent, potentially helping with energy savings. 

Benefit #4: Added Privacy

Aside from protecting you from bugs and bringing shade to your space, Phantom Screens greatly increase your privacy. When you lower the screens you’ll instantly add a private, usable living area in almost every type of weather. Whatever the square footage of your deck or patio, adding a motorized wall screen will create a comfortable extension of your home in no time.

Benefit #5: Ease of Use 

Phantom Motorized Wall Screens were designed with the consumer in mind. With the touch of a button, your outdoor screen solution appears — and then retracts out of sight when it’s not needed. This makes it incredibly simple to add shade, privacy, and protection from insects to your space whenever needed. And as for the months when the sun and bugs aren’t as big of a concern, you can choose to not to have the screen deployed — an option you don’t get with fixed patio screens. 

Motorized Retractable Wall Screens from Phantom Screens allow homeowners to better enjoy their outdoor living spaces without having to worry about insects or the glare of the mid-day sun. There when you need them and out-of-sight when you don’t, these motorized screens enhance beautiful views and extend the time spent outdoors.
